Hi everyone and welcome to my 2011 Independence Day Feast of Summer Photos. A whopping 40 photos await, with many featuring our beloved Jersey Shore. I hope you enjoy.

[NOTE: All Photos, minus (2) of Sesame Place and (1) of a Housing Complex on the Delaware River, were shot within the state of New Jersey]

And here we have Tice's Shoal, with a record number of boaters present (at least in the past fifteen years we have been flying over this area) on the Barnegat Bay side of Island Beach State Park:

Again, more detail of Tices Shoal:

And zooming-in further at Tices Shoal, we see one of the many Raft-Ups taking place:

Sticking out like a sore thumb in Bayville on Lakeside Blvd is this structure on the shores of a perfectly oval lake...

If anyone can identify this please email me at

A typical Holiday City senior housing complex in Toms River:

Flying away from the Jersey Shore and the Pine Barrens, this field looks like a patch of hardwood flooring in my dining room:

Again, another impressive landscape in southern New Jersey:

Junk Yard and School Bus Yard adjacent to Camden County airport in Berlin (New Jersey, of course):

This here is some sort of lake community where most if not all of the surrounding homes have private sandy beaches. Location is near Cross Keys, due southeast of Camden:

Like I said, private sandy beaches:

I call this shopping area near Cross Keys "Asphalt City"...I'm sure you can see why:

Of course Sesame Place was packed on July 4th:

Yes, it was another incredible journey throughout the Garden State, with a slight detour into Pennsylvania. I hope you have enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them. Stay tuned for more Flight Highlights !!!
