Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 7th, 2017

LABOR DAY WEEKEND began with a gray and rainy Saturday and ended with a near-perfect beach day on Monday, complete with a seabreeze.  It's bittersweet--the end of the traditional summer season, but the start of our "Second Summer!"

SECOND SUMMER IS HERE!  September and October offer plenty of fantastic shore weather--sunny days and cooler nights make for great beach days; fall fishing is usually great; golf is more enjoyable without the heat; restaurants and shops are less crowded.  Whether you visit on the weekend or plan a week's vacation, take advantage of our Second Summer!

WWII AIRPLANES could be seen in the skies above Avalon & Stone Harbor this weekend, as they participated in Airfest at Naval Air Station Wildwood.  A B-24 Liberator, B-17 Flying Fortress, and even a P-51 Mustang made regular flights up and down the beach as they flew scheduled trips from NASW.  Who can't help but stop and stare as a vintage bomber rumbles overhead?

PLAN AHEAD for some great fall activities:  Atlantic City In-Water Power Boat Show, September 7-10; Sea Isle Food Truck Festival, September 8-10; Nun's Beach Surf Contest,September 16; NJ Firefighter's Parade, Wildwood, September 16; Stone Harbor's Savor September & Fall Migration Festival, September 23; Avalon Seafood Festival, October 7-8.

BULK PICKUP: Avalon's bulk pickup is underway; items must be curbside by September 10th; pickup begins September 11th.  Stone Harbor's bulk pickup occurs on September 18th; items may be placed curbside up to 72 hours prior.

MAKE SUMMER MEMORIES--all year long!  Why not purchase your very own place at the shore and enjoy it year round?  Beautiful fall weekends and wintertime getaways await you!  Whether you want a small condo, a spacious townhouse, or a castle by the sea, we have something for every need and budget.  Call or email me so we can discuss your needs and get started!
