LABOR DAY WEEKEND began with a gray and rainy Saturday and ended with a near-perfect beach day on Monday, complete with a seabreeze. It’s bittersweet–the end of the traditional summer season, but the start of our “Second Summer!”
SECOND SUMMER IS HERE! September and October offer plenty of fantastic shore weather–sunny days and cooler nights make for great beach days; fall fishing is usually great; golf is more enjoyable without the heat; restaurants and shops are less crowded. Whether you visit on the weekend or plan a week’s vacation, take advantage of our Second Summer!
WWII AIRPLANES could be seen in the skies above Avalon & Stone Harbor this weekend, as they participated in Airfest at Naval Air Station Wildwood. A B-24 Liberator, B-17 Flying Fortress, and even a P-51 Mustang made regular flights up and down the beach as they flew scheduled trips from NASW. Who can’t help but stop and stare as a vintage bomber rumbles overhead?
