Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update July 13th, 2017

SECRETS OF THE DEEP:  An exhibit at the Cape May County Museum features artifacts recovered from ships sunk off the Cape May County coast.  Storms, collisions, and even enemy torpedoes have sent dozens of ships to the bottom in local waters.  Scallopers avoid the wrecks to prevent losing their gear; sport fisherman seek out wrecks due to the marine life that congregates around the sunken hulls.  But it’s divers that visit the wrecks and occasionally retrieve artifacts from them.  The exhibit at the museum will be on display Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9am to 4pm, through October 6th.

“AVALON AWARE” PUBLIC INFORMATION SERIES:  The Avalon Library will host the upcoming “Avalon Aware” series, featuring talks on a variety of topics of interest to the public.  On Monday, July 17th Dr. Brian Reynolds will discuss the importance of Avalon’s dune system.  On July 24th Dr. Stewart Farrell will speak about the evolution of Avalon’s beaches over the past three decades.   On Monday, July 31st Borough Engineer Tom Thornton will discuss new FEMA flood maps.  All sessions begin at 7pm and are free. 

What a beautiful end to a summer day! 

RIDE ALONG with the dolphins and Nik Pattantyus!  Nik is known for his videos recorded while paddle boarding in the ocean, and his latest video makes you feel like you’re out there too!  Watch as dolphins swim alongside and under his paddleboard!

PHILLIES MANAGER Pete Mackanin took a three-day break in Stone Harbor while Major League ballplayers were on their all-star break.  The Philadelphia Inquirer quoted Mackanin as saying he’d “eat, have a few drinks, and sleep.”  Mackanin also added that he’ll “go to the beach.”  Hopefully Mackanin and the Phillies will have a better second half of the season!

THE WINDRIFT TURNS 50 this summer!  A Seven Mile Times article by Dave Coskey in their July edition recounts the development of the Windrift in 1967, as the Seven Mile Beach responded to growing demand for more accommodations.  (The Golden Inn was built in 1966.)    Over the years the Windrift has grown to offer several restaurants and entertainment along with beachfront accommodations.  Pick up a copy of Seven Mile Times and take a trip down Memory Lane!
