Holiday weekend down the shore
SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - June 5, 2008 But at least no rain. So people could still go to the beach and pretty much do anything else they wanted to at the shore. A blanket of fog has been hanging on the beaches at the shore, but that didn't stop vacationers from taking to the sand in a timed honored tradition. The fog is the result of the warm air hitting the cold water. Though the water temperature was 'freezing' according to Gavin Dempsey of Haddon Township, many youngsters still ventured in. Juan Delgado of Wenonah, New Jersey, spent the day on the beach with family visiting from Brazil. Many didn't bother with the beach, choosing instead just to take a stroll. At the Pizza Putt on Sea Isle City's Promenade, slices were selling as the day wore on. Owner Ed Keebler is keeping his fingers crossed for this long holiday weekend. "We're selling a lot of everything this week; it's been good," Keebler said. Over in Avalon, fireworks were launched from a barge offshore, filling the night's sky with color much to the delight of the huge crowd on the beach. The fog from earlier in the day in Sea Isle was not a problem at night in Avalon, and the the pyrotechnics went off without a hitch.
