Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update February 28th, 2019 #RealEstate #NJ

SOAR HIGH ABOVE AVALON, Sea Isle City, and Townsend’s Inlet!  This new drone video from Remington & Vernick Engineers shows construction crews rebuilding part of the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge.  Crews can be seen inspecting components as an outgoing tide rushes past the bridge structure.  You’ll also enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding area, including the inlet and Avalon’s north end, too!

This new drone video shows the work being done on the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge—and stunning views of the inlet and Avalon!

AVALON FIREFIGHTERS WENT SWIMMING this week, but not for fun!  Members of the Avalon Volunteer Fire Department Water Rescue Team received special training from instructor George Ward of the Pennington School, who volunteered his expertise to help members of the fire department improve their efficiency when swimming.  The session took place at the Cape May County Special Services School District in Cape May Court House.  The fire department operates a 25’ Sea Ark boat, two Jet Skis, and a pair of inflatable boats for responding to various water-based emergencies. 

FENCING AT STONE HARBOR POINT:  Volunteers are needed for a fencing project at Stone Harbor Point; the Endangered and Nongame Species Program will install posts, string, flags, and signage to protect the beach nesting bird habitat at Stone Harbor Point.  The project will last from two to four hours; volunteers should be able to walk long distances in the sand, dress for the weather, and bring their own water and snacks.  Membership in the Wildlife Conservation Corps (run by the Division of Fish and Wildlife) is required.  An application can be found here; contact Christina Davis at to register. 

TURTLE FENCING has been installed along Sea Isle Boulevard in order to prevent nesting turtles from crossing the road and being run over.  Black coated chain link fencing is being installed between guardrails and the ground, providing a safety barrier for nesting turtles seeking high ground on which to lay eggs.  Sea Isle Boulevard recently underwent a multi-year project to elevate the roadway; the new turtle fencing is the latest phase of the project.

BOATING, ANYONE?  If you’re in the market for a new boat, the Atlantic City Boat Show runs through Sunday, March 3rd, at the Atlantic City Convention Center.  Featuring hundreds of new boats, plus over 400 booths showcasing the latest in marine engines, accessories, and technology, the mid-winter show allows snow-bound boaters the chance to jump start their boating season!  The National Marine Manufacturers Association says New Jersey ranks 19th in the US, spending $394 million on boats in 2017.  The five day show runs from 11am to 8pm Wednesday through Friday, 10am to 8pm on Saturday, and 10am to 6pm on Sunday.  Tickets are $16 for adults; children 12 & under are free.

STORM OF ’62 SLIDESHOW: The Avalon History Center will host a slideshow titled “Storm of ‘62” on Saturday at 1pm, at the Avalon History Center.  Learn about the famous storm and its impact on the Island!
