FALL WEATHER IS HERE!  After lots of rain and humidity in September, cool, dry air has made it feel like fall on the Island.  Daytime temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high 70s, with evening lows in the 60s for the next week.  Warm ocean water means that the beach is still a perfect place to catch a walk or swim!
NOW THAT IT’S OCTOBER, it’s time to enjoy less traffic, blinking lights instead of red lights, free & easy parking, and taking your dog for a walk on the beach!

The Townsend’s Inlet Bridge stretches toward Avalon…but doesn’t quite make it!  A section of the bridge has been removed on the Avalon side, as part of a major repair project that will replace seven spans during the off season.
BRIDGE TESTING TO TAKE PLACE: While the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge is closed for repairs, two bridges at the other end of Seven Mile Island will be tested for safety in the coming days.  On Tuesday, October 9th the Great Channel Bridge (often referred to as the “Free Bridge”) will be tested, followed by the 96th Street Bridge on Wednesday, October 10th.  Complete closure of the bridges to all vehicles and marine traffic for 15 minute intervals over a four-hour period from 9am to 1pm is expected.   Inspectors will return to these same bridges on October 11th & 12th to perform additional testing which may require brief bridge openings.
REMEMBER THE “TWIN CAPES?”  The former Cape May-Lewes Ferry “Twin Capes” was sunk in June to make an artificial reef off the coast.  Prior to its sinking an episode of “Salvage Dawgs” was filmed as a variety of items from the vessel were salvaged.  The show aired earlier this week, but you can shop the inventory of available items, ranging from light fixtures and brass fittings for less than $100, to the ship’s grand curved staircase for $18,000.  Check out the items here:
DON’T FORGET THE AVALON SEAFOOD FESTIVAL!  It takes place Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 5pm at 30th Street & the beach.  In addition to fresh seafood from local vendors you’ll find beer & wine, kids activities, arts & crafts, live music, and live streaming of college and NFL football games.  Don’t miss it!
94 PROPERTIES ARE UNDER CONTRACT in the local market—meaning 94 families are looking forward to enjoying their very own shore property!  How about you?  From small getaway condominiums to the largest of waterfront homes, Seven Mile Island offers something for every budget and desire.  Call or email me today—I’ll listen to your needs and find you the perfect place to call your own!
