A melting pot of visitors converge every day to see one of New Jersey’s most famous boardwalks. Hotels, casinos, shops, food, food, and more food attracts lots of folks to the Atlantic shore of the 3rd state – December 18, 1787 – the 47th in size. New Jersey, noted for it’s farming (blueberries to name just one glorious fruit!) and it’s pharmaceutical industry, is also famous for its beaches and, as seen here, the boardwalk of Atlantic City.
Merriam-Webster has it’s definition of humanity.
And Buddha had a few words to say himself.
“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” ~ Buddha
Buddha. Ya gotta love the man. He keeps it simple.

Thank you for the theme.
A beautiful, inspiring definition of humanity. It is a vision of hope when people join together for a common good and vision. Wonderful images. Have a happy weekend.
Thank you, Mr. B. Have a great one yourself. 😉
That’s a LOT of humanity, and I expect there’s even more of it on holiday weekends. The boards have a weird optical illusion from that angle. At least I THINK it’s an optical illusion! Buddha has got it going on, but “kind speech” is a tough nut for me, sometimes….
You ain’t telling me nothing, sista!
I need to go back and look at that’s optical illusion.
Oh man! Yeah! I didn’t notice before. Like it’s going up and down and up …
Funny. See how observant I am. 😫
It’s the zig-zags. Maybe in person it looks flat, but I could only tell it was flat because people were walking along and pushing carts like it was normal. Freaky.
Yup. That’s what I see too. The zig and the zag. 😀
love the quotes, and the “slanted” boardwalk. Thirty years ago we use to vacation in Atlantic City, before the casinos moved in.
Thanks, J&M. Well pretty soon you can visit because one by one they’re moving out!
Fabulous shot of the boardwalk. I visited when I was a very little girl. I don’t remember much about the trip as a whole, but I *do* remember the boardwalk. It was summer and very warm. I held on to my Dad’s hand. It was the only big trip all four kids ever took with him and right at the time of my parent’s divorce. It is funny the things we remember as children. Pretty cool that you used this place. And you really do have to love the simplicity of Buddha!
