Yes, it didn’t take long for me to change my focus after a few minutes of walking along Island Beach. I had no idea of the prominence of dunes in central NJ. Now certainly they are small scale compared to dunes around the world but here they really play a key role in shaping the beauty of the park.
This is a shot of the end and southern most point of the park. The Barnegat Inlet is over on the left and you can see the Barnegat Lighthouse as well. But for me, I was more taken by the shapes and patterns of the dunes that separated the Atlantic Ocean from the Barnegat Bay. In fact these dunes became the major focus for the remainder of the outing.
