GREAT START, GRAY FINISH! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday saw ideal weather for kicking off the summer season, with beachgoers, boaters, pedestrians, and bicyclists all taking advantage of it. Monday brought rain and gray skies which led to the cancellation of parades (but not ceremonies) in both Avalon and Stone Harbor, and sent many home a bit earlier than usual. Despite that, most are reporting a strong weekend and a great start to the season!
SEVEN MILE RESTAURANT WEEK runs from June 6th to 12th. Take advantage of specials at dozens of local restaurants before peak summer crowds hit! For a list of participating restaurants click here: http://www.
SLOW DOWN FOR TURTLES! At this time of year diamondback terrapins begin crossing local roads seeking higher ground on which to lay eggs. Give ‘em a brake! Roadway mortality is listed as a major threat to the terrapin population. If you are inclined to help a turtle across the road, carefully help them cross in the direction they are already headed, while taking care to ensure your own safety.
LIFEGUARD TRYOUTS: Do you have what it takes to be a lifeguard? If so, and you’re looking for summer employment, Avalon and Stone Harbor will each hold lifeguard tryouts on Saturday, June 4th, at 10am. Avalon’s will be held on the 32nd Street beach, and Stone Harbor’s will be held at the 95th Street beach.
AT THE 95th STREET BEACH a new deck, pergola, and walkway over the dunes were just dedicated last week. Catch some sun, a breeze, take in the ocean view, or read a book on a bench in the shade!
