Dave Dries doesn’t like air conditioning, and a day of record heat doesn’t faze him. With temperatures in the mid-90s, Dries, of Lincroft had Red Bank’s Marine Park nearly to himself when Sol Searching visited Wednesday afternoon. Nestled in the shade with the famous Navesink view a glance away, he spent the day reading and relaxing while others tanned and waded elsewhere. (Photo by Stacie Fanelli. Click to enlarge)

Today, redbankgreen engages in a bit of Sol Searching as we chase the sun across the Green on the longest – thanks to the Summer Solstice – and, by coincidence, so-far-hottest day of the year. Please check in regularly to see where we’ve been. Suggestions? Send ’em here, please.
