Postcard Friendship Friday

Marie loved your post today and loved that I had Friday off so I could post on Postcard Friendship Friday.......and I would never unfriend you.  I wish I could join you every Friday.  So, during the summer I started to join in on the fun and said I would include a postcard and show how it looks today......never really happened.  I am in retail .... it has been a whirlwind of preparing the store for the holidays.....my days off didn't even include bloggging..... this postcard is from Ocean Grove.  A  very historical town that neighbors Asbury Park.  This gazebo is  called Beersheba Well and was the first well in Ocean Grove built in June 1870.  The picture on the postcard I am guessing is from the 60's it is not marked.
This was last year.  I was so happy Ian and Kaylyn  still posed for a Christmas picture.  I like how you can see the detail on the gazebo too.  And with it being winter you can see the Great Auditorium which was built in 1869 is in the backround on the left.  Ocean Grove is a very interesting Historical town.  Growing up I remember there was still a law where you could not drive in town on Sundays.  I thought that was so strange when I was young, but now I wish there were still towns that would stand their ground and keep laws like that around.

Lovely postcard. I love local vintage postcards. We also have a gazebo right in the center of town, and it looks very pretty around the holidays. I hope my son and daughter will always pose for a Christmas photo, too. Your never too old for that. Have a happy weekend.

What a pretty gazebo, and how lovely that you have a family photo of the same place. I've never heard of a "no driving" rule on Sundays, but in the UK we've only recently allowed shops to trade on Sundays.

I understand that whirlwind 1000 percent! This is an outrageously wonderful card. It's so nice to peek into your life here and catch up with you! A huge hug:)

Thanks for visiting my blog, and thanks for sharing this one. I came from a musically talented family, both parents playing the piano - my dad professionally, my mom a teacher. I do not play, but do have a good voice. You are blessed. I wish I'd have discovered your comment earlier, but I'm not notified of comments on older posts, so I have to periodically check.
