    Thanks for the introduction. Always searching for new & interesting places in NJ when we visit our son. Just did Mt.Tabor and had a great day.

    Sandy Hook is a birdwatcher's paradise, has a new bicycle path, (bicyclists enter S.H. for free), museum, and lots of military ruins- but as you say, weekends are busy.

    I think the admission is $10 b/c I used to live there;-) Sandy Hook is nice, though...I see you didn't happen to go to Gunnison (aka the nude beach)...why not, Joe? Good choice not to, there are some scary gunnifreaks
