After a cool, damp start, we managed to pull out a pretty darn good Memorial Day Weekend and the crowds ready to get back to The Shore were plentiful.  But last weekend didn't feature the warmest  beach weather.

This weekend promises to bring  warmer temps to the beach, but not to the way-too-frigid for my taste Ocean water, with temps stills below 60 degrees!  So, have fun on the sand and in the sun and just dip a toe in the water for another couple of weeks, 'til things warm up.
