A beautiful day deserves a beautiful park.

“Cheesequake State Park’s uniqueness lies in its geographical location.
Not only is it situated in the middle of the urban north and the suburban south, it lies in a transitional zone between two different ecosystems. Open fields, saltwater and freshwater  marshes, a white cedar swamp, Pine Barrens, and a northeastern hardwood forest are the main characteristics of the park.”
(from http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/cheesequake.html)

As we walked down the path, the kids decided they want to look for bears!
Bears?
Could it be that the kids are scarred from their fearsome battle with Winnie the Pooh at Disney?

There are no bears around, but we looked anyway.
Behind trees, bushes and on the side of the trail.
For a second we thought we saw a huge grizzly bear...but no...it was a squirrel - a common mistake we understand.

At the end of the trail, after we scared away all the bears which we never saw - we played at the playground until the park closed.
