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.

And Buddha had a few words to say himself.

TRAVEL THEME – PEACEFUL

I’ve always wanted my own space.   A retreat, I suppose.  A  quiet spot where I could close the door and shut out the sounds of the street.  Somewhere to sit in quiet contemplation.  A no-stress,  peaceful corner – my own little world.  Ailsa’s challenge encouraged me to set the wheels in motion.  A slow, restful motion. .  It’s just a start, but I feel it’s a good one.  Welcome to my peaceful place.  Enter quietly, please.

I think everyone should have just such a place.  Apparently, I’m not the only one in the house that needs a place for peaceful contemplation.
