Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update June 15th, 2017

IT FEELS LIKE SUMMER!  After cool weather much of the spring, a recent spike in temperatures has it feeling like summer again.  Temperatures were in the 90s several days this week, but are expected to fall back to the 70s for the weekend.  In case you’re wondering, the ocean water temperature is already a delightful 70 degrees!

IS THE BRIDGE OPEN YET?  Maybe by July 4th!  The Townsend’s Inlet Bridge has been closed to vehicular traffic while undergoing emergency repairs since a crack in its structure was discovered during an April inspection.  Residents and visitors on both sides of the bridge are anxious for it to reopen.  After weeks of repair work from aboard a barge stationed next to the bridge, officials say they are hoping to have the bridge reopened by the July 4thweekend if things go as planned.  Having the bridge open helps businesses and visitors in Avalon and Sea Isle City by saving a twenty-minute ride “the long way around!”

HABITAT  ReSTORE OPEN IN CMCH:  Habitat for Humanity opened its ReStore in Cape May Court House last week at 20 Court House-South Dennis Road, offering building materials and household items for resale.  The store is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm.  If you have gently used household items in good condition, consider donating them to the store for resale.  Items may be donated to the store during business hours, or a free pick up service is offered for larger items.  Call 609-463-0244 or visit for details. 

Looking for lunch…an egret makes his way toward a small pond in the marsh behind Avalon.

AVALON HISTORICAL SOCIETY’S Photography Competition winners and other entries will be on display at the Avalon History Center through Tuesday, June 27th.  Stop by the History Center to view not only the photography, but the Avalon artifacts in the museum’s collection.  For info on the Avalon Historical Society’s upcoming Olde House Tour, plus a talk on railroads in Avalon, see the event list below!

MAKE A SUMMER BUCKET LIST!  What’s on your “I wanna do it!” list this summer?  Perhaps you want to catch a sunrise on the beach?  Catch a fish with your grandchild? Climb to the top of the Cape May Lighthouse?  Whatever is on your Summer Bucket List, set aside some time and make a point of doing it!
