I keep a list of places I'd like to go.   "Grounds For Sculpture"  has been on that list for a number of years.  Well, I'm happy to say that I finally got there and found it to be a really worthwhile trip.

It's in Hamilton, NJ, just about an hour from Toms River.  How to describe the place?  A giant area where you can walk around and enjoy interesting sculptures.  Many are abstract.  They're made of different materials; wood, steel, marble, etc.  Some of my favorites were the sculptures of people in various "everyday" positions.  There was a older man fishing by the water, a child reading a book, a couple enjoying a romantic moment.

Most of the artwork can be touched, so that explains why all the kids I saw seemed to be having a good time.  They were interacting with the pieces in a way that seemed to be fun for everyone.  I had a bit of fun at one of the indoor galleries.  Here I am photobombing a sculpture of Mona Lisa. 

The cafe offered a  nice assortment of snacks and beverages and there's even a fine dining establishment on the grounds.
