It has now been a full week since we have had a wave even remotely worth getting wet over.  This is unfortunate and enough to drive a surfer a little crazy.  Fortunately, the Belmar Seafood Festival, one of the great harbingers of summer along the Jersey Shore, offered a fine distraction.  The tents were open all weekend and the people came to town with their appetites in tow.   

Sunday Morning Just Before the Crowds

 There was plenty of good music; jazz, blues and rock & roll played in the gazebo on the lake both days.  



Surfrider was there on Friday night and Saturday, but their tent was nowhere to be found on Sunday.  They were signing folks up and promoting environmental awareness as only they can. I was bummed to see them missing on day three.  The good news is that 90.5 The Night, Brookdale Public Radio was in effect.  It is a great station on the radio or for checking out on the web.   


The Belmar Arts Council was also there.  They offer a great link between creativity and the surfing lifestyle.  Hutch and his Wife Pat were raffling off a beach cruiser and doing so in grand fashion.    

Alternative Transportation Anyone?

Of course the highlight of the whole thing is the food, and there was plenty of good stuff to be had.  There must have been close to 60 vendors in total and all of them offered their own specialities.

It was also awesome to see so many local vendors doing their thing.  One of the great stops on any given day in our area is 10th Ave. Burrito and this weekend was no exception.

As you might expect, there are always one or two items that are questionable and dependent on personal preference when it comes to food.  So given the variety I was not surprised to find something that even I would not venture to eat.  


Is This anatomically Correct?

None the less, a great time was had by all.  Now, we just need some waves…
