    The NMHA Zen River Cruise!

    Join NMHA for an early Saturday morning Zen River Cruise on the good ship Mariner. A voyage on a boat is always a search for deeper meaning, whether in the form of the Odyssey, the Heart of Darkness, or a tranquil cruise on the Navesink.

    At 0830 the Mariner will leave the dock in Atlantic Highlands, and River Zen Masters Captain Dan, History Rik, and Wildlife Chuck, will guide you into the deeper recesses of the Navesink River, whether related to the forces of nature, the march of time, or the search for deeper meaning between us and this fascinating estuary! Oh, and we might see some birds as well!

    Refreshed and relaxed, we will return to the dock at Atlantic Highlands at 11:30.

    Registration $40 per person including breakfast (coffee, juice, bagels, muffins, fruit).  Water, Mimosas, and Bloody Marys fare available from the onboard cash bar.

    Public Presentation: Life on the Monmouth County Frontier in 1777

    The American Revolution was fought between Washington's Continentals and the Redcoats of the British Army, right? True, but there was vigorous and sometimes violent disagreement between the settlers, especially in the early part of the War and especially at the frontier between the settlers and the Redcoats, This was true along the Bayshore and Monmouth County where the British had a major base at Sandy Hook and the New Jersey Militia held the high ground around Twin Lights.

    British Navy had captured Sandy Hook in 1776 (three months before the Declaration of Independence) and held it until late 1782 (a year after the Battle of Yorktown 'ended' the war).  They used this base for defense of New York and to probe the defenses along the Bayshore, culminating in the Battle of the Navesink in February 1777.

    The British landed by boat near Twin Lights and faced the Monmouth Militia who had been holding the highlands from attack. Taken by surprise, 20 militiamen were killed and over 50 were captured and held in prisons in New York City.

    Complicating the war, Monmouth County residents were for- and anti- British, and privateering, profiteering, and civil war rumbled on as the war progressed.

    Michael Adelberg, a noted researcher of the American Revolution in Central Jersey  and author of The American Revolution in Monmouth County, will give a presentation of this little-known aspect of the Revolutionary War in our backyard.

    7:30pm: Coffee and Cookies. 

    8:00pm: Presentation. 9:00pm Close. 

    FREE event, ALL are welcome. 

    Come early to Bahrs and enjoy a drink and snack at the bar or a meal in the restaurant
