Memorial Day crowds

Memorial Day weekend in Asbury Park

Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore! Time for everyone to put Sandy behind them and start enjoying the unofficial start of summer!

Unfortunately, the unofficial start of summer has been about 55F at best. Nobody wants to lay out in weather like that.

Today, at least, the sun is out; it’s been rainy and overcast for the past two days. But all the boardwalkers and joggers are dressed in sweatshirts, long pants, fleece jackets, gloves. It’s not beach weather.

Shore towns have pushed themselves to rebuild hurriedly, to be ready for tourists and beachgoers and commerce-bringers at the beginning of the summer season… and the summer season comes with a tiny fizzle.

Well. Shore towns will have the rest of the summer to catch up, I hope.
