Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update May 31st, 2018 #RealEstate #NJ

SEVEN MILE RESTAURANT WEEK begins Monday, June 4th and runs through Sunday, June 10th.  Over 50 restaurants are participating this year, and you’ll find everything from breakfast & lunch specials to $30.18 three-course dinners on their menus.  It’s a great way to try out a new place, or revisit an old favorite!  For a list of participating restaurants click here:

The US Coast Guard cruises through Townsend’s Inlet on a routine patrol prior to Memorial Day Weekend.  Just a few days later boats, waverunners, and all sorts of pleasure craft filled local waters.

TURTLE TIME!  It’s time for diamondback terrapins to begin seeking higher ground upon which to lay their eggs.  That often means turtles crossing local roadways which, unfortunately, leads to road kills.  Many local roadways are lined with turtle barriers to prevent turtles from crossing, but turtles can still appear on road surfaces.  Keep an eye open for turtles, and “give ‘em a brake!”  If you are inclined to stop and help a turtle across the road, please ensure your own safety by checking for traffic, and then help the turtle cross in the same direction it was headed.

WHAT A SOUVENIR!  Looking for the ultimate beach keepsake from Stone Harbor?  How about your very own lifeguard stand?  The Stone Harbor Beach Patrol has recently purchased aluminum lifeguard stands to replace older, heavier wooden models.  If you’d like one of those wooden lifeguard stands as the ultimate souvenir, check  The wooden stands are being auctioned off on the government surplus auction site (the auctions currently run through June 1st).  Whether that lifeguard stand costs you $50 or $500, it’s sure to spark some memories—and some interesting conversations with your neighbors!

A WHALE OF A FLOUNDER!  A 7.3 pound, 23-inch flounder was weighed in at Grassy Sound Marina in North Wildwood this past weekend, according to the Atlantic City Press.  That’s a great early-season catch—flounder season opened last Friday, and by most accounts is off to a very strong start.  Most fishermen are reporting catching keepers that easily exceed this year’s 18-inch minimum size.

BEACH ACCESS, RAMP LOCATIONS, SURF CHAIRS, AND MORE:  If you’re visiting Cape May County and need a ramp or surf chair to access the beach, this guide to Cape May County beach accessibility will be helpful:  Parking options, restroom facilities, and contact phone numbers are also listed for each town.
