Go To It!

GO TO-June 2nd - Bay Day at Bivalve.  Set your gps for Port Norris and head on down to Bivalve for the annual festival of Bay Day!  I'll be working at the museum from 1-3 but it will be open for many other hours, of course, and lots of other activities and pleasures to enjoy. 

On Memorial Day, two friends and I took the sail on the A. J. Meerwald out to the Bay and up the river.  It was breezy and delightful.  Next planned excursion will be to the East Point Lighthouse.  I feel a lighthouses of the NJ seacoast series coming up!

GO TO-Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen's Museum My latest ramblings around the historic places of South Jersey have taken me to the Tuckerton Seaport where my friends and I had a copious and delicious lunch at SoJo and enjoyed the surf board show at the museum.  We climbed the lighthouse and looked out over the expanse of  more than 2 dozen buildings devoted to describing seaport life.  We visited the decoy carver, too, and several other buildings.  I plan to go back because there is so much to see there, one trip is never enough.  This is my third trip. 

GO TO-June 18 - 19th Annual Baymen's Seafood and Music Festival 11 - to 5:00 p.m. the title says it all.  Listed as one of "Top 10 NJ Outdoor Festivals" by Nj Countryside Magazine.  Presented by Jersey Shore Folklife Center. It is held at the Tuckerton Seaport of course!
