Ospreys are back and have taken up residence in nests throughout the area. This one is visible from Avalon Boulevard, with the Stone Harbor water tower in the distant background.
AVALON & STONE HARBOR BEACHES REOPENING FRIDAY, MAY 8TH! Avalon Mayor Martin Pagliughi and Stone Harbor Mayor Judy Davies-Dunhour announced a partial reopening of the beaches on Seven Mile Island. Beginning Friday beaches will be open from dawn to dusk for walking, jogging, fishing, and surfing. Stationary beach activities are still prohibited, and social distancing must still be practiced, but it will bring great joy to a lot of people to be able to access the beach again!

LOCAL AND COUNTY OFFICIALS have been working hard to form reopening plans so that local businesses may safely reopen as soon as permitted to do so by the governor. Social distancing, masks, and other new practices are likely to be incorporated into nearly every type of business, so even familiar restaurants and merchants will look different for the foreseeable future. Cape May County businesses, residents, and visitors are excited about reopening in a responsible manner in order to safely enjoy the summer season that we all look forward to!
SUMMER RENTALS: Like everyone else, we’re monitoring the latest news and directives closely. Currently, there is a moratorium on short term rental check-ins, and we have contacted affected tenants and owners with rental check-in dates up through May 22nd. As guidelines change and restrictions are extended or removed, we will again contact any affected owners or tenants.
THE SALE MARKET IS ACTIVE AGAIN! Following a pause when statewide stay-at-home restrictions were issued, market activity resumed in mid-April, and numerous properties have been placed under contract since. Currently there are 40 properties under contract in the local market; see below for the latest to be placed under contract, as well as those recently sold!
A LITTLE BIT OF THE SHORE: Check out this four minute video of dolphins and whales frolicking at the surface! Recorded 49 miles from Cape May a couple of years ago, a broad expanse of empty ocean suddenly came alive with dolphins playing in the boat’s wake as a group of whales lumbered along nearby! (Jump ahead to about 3:45 for the best view of the whales!)
