It was a lovely day on the Jersey Shore. Not a cloud in the sky. The temperatures were pushing 60. And the people came out to walk the boardwalk in Asbury Park. All ages. Some bore the remnants of winter clothing. Some just wore t-shirts. Most still were masked, even as the ocean breezes emboldened a few to take them off. But young or no longer young, taking a leisurely stroll or zipping by on a skateboard, on this day the proverbial generation gap felt narrower. You can almost feel the envy of those watching the spirit of youth fly by, rushing to meet tomorrow.
