Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update August 24th, 2017

EVERYONE WAS LOOKING UP!  Monday afternoon nearly everyone who was outside was wearing a pair of eclipse glasses and looking up!  From the beach to the shopping districts to private decks,  everybody took a break from what they were doing in order to get a look at the solar eclipse.  Clouds moved in and out, but generally Cape May County had a great view!

Monday’s solar eclipse could be seen from Cape May County!

BEACH SAND varies from island to island along the New Jersey coast.  Ever wonder why?  It’s a mix of factors, including geology, weather & wave action, and even beach replenishment projects.  For a look at how these factors can affect the make up of beach sand, see this article:

THE MIDATLANTIC Fishing Tournament is underway this week, as boats from as far away as Florida and Texas compete with other anglers out of Canyon Club Marina in Cape May.  This year 151 boats are chasing a total purse of $3,147,120.  So far a number of white marlin have been caught and released, and a lesser number of blue marlin have been caught and released.
