There are a lot of things that Ocean County can take credit for influencing on a wide scale. And, unbeknownst to me, some of those influences are even international.

Situated right in the middle of the stunning Cascade Mountain Range, there aren't many things that would remind an Ocean County local of home in British Columbia.

So, imagine my surprise when watching some local TV, I saw a commercial for Jersey Mike's Subs.

As most of us know, Jersey Mike's started right here in Ocean County, with the original Point Pleasant location, and the shops are a common sight throughout the Jersey Shore.

I mean, heck, "Jersey" is right in the name!

I realize that it's a franchise with locations throughout the country, but I guess I just never thought of seeing something so familiar, and so identified with the Shore, so far from the Shore.

It's just another sign that as far from the Shore as you may go, if you look hard enough, there are still reminders of home.
