The satellite image below covers about 4 miles (6.4 km) across, showing the community of Sunrise Beach on Barnegat Bay and Island Beach State Park, a pristine part of barrier peninsula separating the bay from the Atlantic Ocean at the right.
On a good day, the numbers can reach several hundred boats, jockeying for space and visibility; for sun seeking celebratory fun; for relaxing, drinks, food, swimming, and just being there.
Below are photos and captions from Tices Shoal, followed by the treasure that is, on the ocean side…
As usual, comments are always welcome, and…thanks for viewing! 🙂
More information can be found at the official Tices Shoal website.

Ahhhhh … Down the shore. Headed there today! I always feel like a kid, because the first glance of the ocean is magic. Of course, it could become a bit rough in the next few days. Welcome to summer storm season!
Loved, loved, loved this photo essay, M. Thanks for starting my morning with this!
Thanks, Maggie. You especially know (and share) the magic of the shore and tide-line! 🙂 M
Looks like a nice place . . . except, you know, for all the people. And boats.
For that…we wait for week-days after October! 🙂
Great shots, I think I would prefer the sea side, the bay looks too crowded.. 🙂
On busy summer week-ends, it draws humanity! M
Looks like rush hour on the L.I.E. 😉
Summer and water – beautiful.
