I'm seeing more and more boats on the bay, tomorrow is the light switch when we go from spring (or winter in this year's case) to Summer. Weather looks phenomenal Friday and Saturday, I hope the local businesses do well. I'll have to sneak over to the Seaside Boardwalk at some point for a Kohr's Frozen Custard.

Even though the calendar says otherwise, summer is "unofficially" here - especially with todays great weather. The beginning of a new summer season has a special feeling to it that makes the worst days of winter well worth it.  
 
The day I see the cover being installed over the Crest bandstand at Centennial Park (it's going up today), that's THE first day of summer as far as I'm concerned.  
 
Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone!      Cool

, I prefer the less quiet, more familiar sounds of summer in Wildwood - kids screaming playing in motel pools as they jump into the water, music playing over motel speakers, ice cream trucks coming and going, the fruit truck guy banging on that triangle, people yelling and laughing at the motels, the sound of beach wagons wheels squeaking away. Peace and quiet is great, but I prefer the sounds of summer.

 
Aw common that great description of the sounds of Wildwood has me about ready to ditch work and drive right down  Grin

It's just been announced that the pier will be opening on June 1 instead of Memorial Day weekend.

I grew up across the street from the Reges on Newark Ave. I agree it IS quiet down there.  
 
I learned to appreciate the peacefulness of the "deep" Crest but, personally, I prefer the less quiet, more familiar sounds of summer in Wildwood - kids screaming playing in motel pools as they jump into the water, music playing over motel speakers, ice cream trucks coming and going, the fruit truck guy banging away on that triangle, people yelling and laughing at the motels, the sound of beach wagon wheels squeaking away. Peace and quiet is great, but I prefer the sounds of summer.  
 
Have a great time at the Icona! You've earned it.    Wink
