Everyone’s definition of their home state differs a bit.
Many people think about warm weather in New Jersey in terms of the shore. For me, the warmer weather also reminds me of long drives on country roads, away from traffic, and even away from the beach. I spent many springs and summers in my childhood along these roads with views such as this one, admiring hard-working farms, and enjoying fresh produce we bought at the small, roadside farm stands.
Scenes like this are a big part of my Picture Perfect, New Jersey definition. Hazy, and hot, and home…
