Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 6, 2018 #RealEstate #NJ

ALL WEEKEND LONG giant warbirds from a bygone era flew up and down the beaches of Cape May County as part of the annual Airfest at Naval Air Station Wildwood.  The Collings Foundation organized flights aboard World War II-era aircraft, including B-17, B-24, and B-25 bombers, and a TF-51D.  The giant bombers’ engines could be heard rumbling their way around the county as they made numerous flights, at a cost of $400 per passenger and up.  Those not flying aboard the vintage aircraft could have a look at them on the tarmac, and visit other NASW museum displays, while listening to live music and enjoying a beer garden & food.

A World War II bomber flies over Seven Mile Beach Sunday.  Several vintage warplanes flew around Cape May County as part of Naval Air Station Wildwood’s annual Airfest held over Labor Day Weekend.

OPRAH WINFREY made a special visit to nearby Whitesboro this past Saturday.  Winfrey flew aboard her private plane to attend the 30th Annual Whitesboro Reunion.  Oprah’s long-time partner Stedman Graham grew up in Whitesboro, and also attended the reunion. 

BARRACUDA & WAHOO have been caught in the past couple of weeks.  Large wahoo up to 80 pounds have been landed at the 28-Mile Wreck and Wilmington Canyon, while a 35-pound barracuda was caught just off Townsend’s Inlet last week.  Perhaps the most surprising local catch wasn’t a catch at all: in Longport a large tuna was chasing baitfish and jumped out of the water—and landed on a jetty, where it became stuck.  Two local fishermen were on the jetty—fishing for other species—and one carried the tuna home.  No official weight was reported, but based on its size it appeared to be about 75 pounds.  Tuna often jump when feeding, but finding them close to shore in this area is exceedingly rare, as they prefer much deeper “bluewater” far offshore.

OUR “SECOND SUMMER” BEGINS NOW!  The peak summer months of July & August are now behind us, but we’ve got two wonderful months ahead!  Trade in the heat & humidity for cooler, drier weather, but still-warm ocean water, and smaller crowds.  Locals and seashore regulars know that September & October are a great time to enjoy the best of the shore! 

FALL WEEKENDS bring an array of weekend activities to the area, and there’s a little something for everyone.  Whether you enjoy food, music, fishing, fire trucks, or wildlife, you’ll find a weekend event to match your interest!
