THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED! Not the Philadelphia Eagles…bald eagles! This past week several bald eagles were spotted in the marsh behind Seven Mile Island. Many have perched atop nests recently vacated by ospreys. If you’re out on the water or driving the Boulevards keep an eye open for eagle sightings!
Treat yourself to a sunrise on the beach the next time you’re in town—it’s a great way to start your day! Photo by Brian Reed.
A 132-FOOT FISHING PIER could be built on Sea Isle City’s bayfront according to plans unveiled at a recent city council meeting. The pier would be constructed at Dealy Field near 60th Street, and would include space for fishing, a kayak launch area, and an area for sitting and enjoying the view and sunset. The city has applied for a county grant to fund the $935,000 pier, and permits from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection must also be obtained.
WINTERIZE NOW! It’s that time again, as temperatures will soon drop after this week’s pleasant warm up. Outside showers, garden hoses, and other outdoor water should be shut off and drained, and foundation vents can be closed. If leaving your inside water on, set thermostats at 55 degrees to keep pipes warm. Call your plumber or contractor now, if you haven’t already, and get on their schedule. Need a plumber or contractor? Call or email me!
