Cloudy skies and a high tide made for dramatic reflections in our back bay waters last week. Scott Zimmerman captured this great shot behind Seven Mile Island. Thanks Scott!
OVER 50 LIFEGUARDS from across the state came to Cape May last Friday to guard the beaches, so Cape May lifeguards could attend the funeral of 16-year old lifeguard Norman Inferrera, who died during an on-duty accident. Inferrera was seriously injured when a rogue wave broke and capsized his boat, and later succumbed to his injuries. The Cape May Beach Patrol later reached out to more than 20 beach patrols for assistance covering the beaches during Inferrera’s funeral and were overwhelmed with rapid responses from Cape May Point to North Jersey. According to a recent Atlantic City Press article, Avalon Beach Patrol Lieutenant Erich Wolf was among those who volunteered at Cape May, and even manned Inferrera’s lifeguard stand.

MOSTLY SUNNY, HIGHS IN THE 70S: That’s the forecast for the three-day holiday weekend! After the remnants of Ida finish dropping rain this week, skies are expected to clear up. Hopefully the forecast will hold so we can all squeeze in some extra beach days and family barbeques!
IT’S NOT OVER! Although Labor Day Weekend traditionally marks the end of summer and the return to the school year, those lucky enough to be able to stay on the island during September and October call it the “Second Summer.” Warm days, cool nights, and smaller crowds are among the highlights to be enjoyed!
