OCEAN WATER TEMPERATURES near 70 degrees were recorded this week off Cape May County.  That’s about average for this time of year, though daily temperatures can vary widely, especially if offshore winds blow warm surface water out to sea, allowing cooler subsurface water to replace it along the beach.  Traditional southerly sea breezes help blow warm surface water toward the beach—ensuring a comfortable dip in the surf!

A SAFE BOATING CLASS will be held Saturday, June 25th at the Stone Harbor Yacht Club, from 8am to 4:30pm.  Students successfully completing the course will earn an New Jersey Safe Boating Certificate—required for anyone operating a vessel in New Jersey waters.  Registration is required for the $55 class—call Ed McGarvey at (609) 703-9688 to register.

THE AVALON HISTORICAL SOCIETY is featuring vintage cameras in a new exhibit at the Avalon History Center, at 215 39thStreet.  Early 1900’s cameras from Kodak, Argus, and Polaroid are on display from 10am-4pm, Tuesday through Sundays, through June.

MEET R2-D2 at the Avalon Library on July 13th!  Long-time Avalon resident and Long & Foster friend Bob Ross has built—yes, built!—three versions of R2-D2, of Star Wars fame.  Meet Bob and one of his incredible droids at the Avalon Library on July 13th, from6:30pm to 7:45pm.  Bob will describe the design and construction of his R2-D2, and treat the crowd to a demonstration!
