Brrrr. It's Getting Cold Outside. The Caribbean In Our Own New Jersey Backyard.

Brrrrr. This time of year is cold. It makes you think of your next exotic destination, doesn't it? Did you know we have true crystal clear turquoise water here in NJ? Less the palm trees of course.

Lake Audrey, Millville, NJ

 

Oh Lake Audrey. You are absolutely stunning. Just like …Audrey Hepburn you are one classy broad. You sit on over 120 acres. You are pristine, beautiful and untouched. I would like to keep you this way.

Okay dokey, so I set off on a gorgeous sunny day only to witness the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. Yes, I have seen many. This baby is sexy. Lake Audrey reminds me of the Caribbean. Turquoise crystal clear water. You can see straight to the sandy bottom. A few sailboats you see anchored in the distance. For a minute, you believe you are on a tropical getaway and not here in NJ.

She’s had a lot of work done to her over the years. In 2004, the Fish and Wildlife Department took her over. Lake Audrey was not suitable for any fish life. The PH level was bonkers. Many South Jersey volunteers worked effortlessly to get her well. Tons of lime were dumped in the lake to get it hospitable for the fish and get the PH levels up to speed.
