FAIR HAVEN: WITCHES’ WHIMSY ON THE WATER

About two dozen witches swapped their brooms for self-propelled watercraft in the Navesink River off Fair Haven Saturday.

The aim of the “somewhat impromptu” coven convening was to “to bring a bit of whimsy and fun to an otherwise tricky (no pun intended) and difficult year,” said Rachel Griffin, who organized the event with Cassie Conley. Inspired by a Witch Paddle that takes place in Mystic, Connecticut, Griffin said she and Conley hope to make it an annual outing for charity.

COZY GRAFFITI

Saturday was International Yarn Bombing Day, and a clutch of local knitters and crocheters, including Rachel Griffin of Fair Haven, took the opportunity to execute a pre-dawn hit on a bench outside the Sugarush cupcake shop on East Front Street in Red Bank.
