No Clouds, Big Crowds…

The weather has certainly cooperated for an absolutely amazing Memorial Day Weekend at the Jersey Shore.  As the clouds parted and summer wafted in the air, people lined up to get a spot on the sand.  The beaches were crowded by 9 a.m. and continued to swell as the heat rose. 

As most people know, a day at the beach is about simplicity; a warm peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a tube of sunblock and an old pair of flip-flops magically become the “finer things in life.”  In essence, it is about getting to the edge of the ocean and leaving it all behind. 

An Ad for No-AD...

  

 

As is typical of Memorial Weekends past, the ocean did not produce for the surfers.  The waves laid flat, except for the Saturday morning wave that came up between 6 and 10 a.m.  I was able to get a session with 20 of my closest friends (more on crowds another time). 

 

The good news is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting a very active tropical season.  They are calling for as many as 23 named storms with anywhere between 8 and 14 hurricanes.  By my very unscientific account we have a chance to see waves every week and maybe even some very good ones at that. 

This could be great for us, terrible for the folks in the Gulf States.  The oil still flows unabated.  However, Kevin Costner may have a solution.  I cannot believe that I just wrote that, but you can see the video here.  You just have to forget that Costner starred in The Bodyguard and then it is utterly believable. 

Thanks for checking in and enjoy your Monday BBQs!

    Kevin Costner. Does he want to make it financially attractive by finishing Waterworld with an exciting alternate ending?

    Warm PB & J. Right on.

    Good, Very Good. The Costner thing a bit confusing. 23 storms! I better up the insurance on the mobile home.
