After an evening of music at Asbury Park, it was time for some Memorial Day fireworks on the beach.
Oh, oh, oh, I'm on fire!
...and the post-show silence. That's the Atlantic lurking out there in the dark...
A couple of stragglers take in a late snack at one of the boardwalk concessions...
...while the venerable landmarks quietly settle in for the night.
Above is the Casino Carousel House (sans carousel, which now resides in Myrtle Beach). If you find its elegant design familiar, that may be because it was designed by architect Whitney Warren, who also helped design Grand Central Station in New York. You can see a recent photo of the carousel here, although the horses have been replaced.
