HOUSE PORTRAITS by Lisa Cunningham are a great way to capture the essence of your shore home!  Not only do Lisa’s portraits make a great keepsake, they’re wonderful conversation starters when entertaining guests or clients.  They also make a fantastic gift!  Visit Lisa’s website for more samples of her work:

BULKHEAD HEIGHTS were discussed at a recent Stone Harbor Council meeting.  Rising sea levels and the potential for flooding are behind the discussion.  According to data presented by Lenore Tedesco of The Wetlands Institute, only about thirty percent of the borough’s bulkheads meet the current required height of 6.2 feet.  Changing the height requirement to 8 feet was discussed, an increase of almost 2 feet.   But bulkheads have a long lifespan and are replaced infrequently, meaning it could take decades before all bulkheads reach that level.

SIGNS OF SPRING:  More shops and restaurants are reopening for the season, including Marie Nicole’s Grill, Stone Harbor Bar & Grill, and Spiaggetta.  Chilly temperatures and recent snow have made the month of March feel more like a lion than a lamb, but each weekend more property owners are returning to the Island, as the weather gradually warms up.

THE AVALON/STONE HARBOR UPDATE will return the week of April 9th.
