These Flip-Flops on the fence in Ocean Gate, NJ, Just Make Me Smile
I love Ocean Gate. I watch the sunset there every night. It's such a cute, quaint town. I know it's really weird, but every year I see this and it just makes me smile.
I thought it looked so cool. I was asking her all kinds of questions, "Do you know why they're there?" "Are they lost flip-flops?" "Is there a color scheme?" Ok, she's sixteen she had no idea and never noticed them before.
I was never at this section of the beach in Ocean Gate so I've never seen this before. I don't believe I've ever seen the flip-flops hanging on the fence closer to where I sit near the spray park.
It's such a sense of community in Ocean Gate. I'll see a lot of my neighbors and friends and friends I haven't seen in a while.
I feel like I have seen this in a picture or somewhere else. I can't figure it out. Maybe I've seen it in Ocean Gate before, but I doubt it. Have you seen it before somewhere else?
Wouldn't it be a really cool picture to hang your living room? It looks like a lot of people just leave their flip-flops or shoes behind. I'm not understanding how you could just leave your shoes or flip-flops at the beach. Did you forget you wore shoes to the beach?
Some of the flip-flops on the fence looked really nice. Although, I bet my teenage daughter has left her flip-flops at the beach already and I probably never knew it.
So, are the flip-flops on the fence just lost shoes? Or is there a meaning behind them on the Ocean Gate beach? I've heard different things over the years, but my favorite is "It's an Ocean Gate thing."
