Impatient Patient

I’m grateful for my caring and competent doctors…and some strong meds to help with back pain this past week.

I have missed WAY too many beach walks  :)

Finally on the mend, and added a few more blocks to my “stroll” this morning. Ready for another busy change over day, too.

Hobie Cat Beach, Stone Harbor

Due to beach erosion from winter storms, the Hobie Cat beach slips at the south end of Stone Harbor were not offered this summer.

Yet today I noticed the numbered markers, and a lone Hobie Cat in the 123rd Street parking lot.

I could not find updated information on the Borough of Stone Harbor web site, but will post when I know more.

UPDATE 8/7/16 from article in the Cape May County Herald 

Hobie Cats

Hobie Cats will be returning to Stone Harbor after council approved a modified number for their traditional beach site. Damage to the beaches due to winter storms had led the borough to eliminate the Hobie Cat beach locations this season.

Council member Mantura Gallagher reported that she had been working with a group of Hobie Cat enthusiasts to see if a reduced number might be able to gain approval.

Gallagher said the “Beach was beginning to naturally restore itself.” She and resident Jack Kelleher, an informal representative of a group of Hobie Cat owners, presented the case to the council for 30 spaces at their traditional south-end beach area.

Kelleher pledged that the owners would ensure their boats were off the beach if weather reports predicted an unusually high tide or approaching storm.

The boat owners also indicated that they realized the season would be shortened on the tail-end by the scheduled beach replenishment project beginning in October.

“We will have eight weeks with a chance to sail,” said Kelleher. Council gave him and fellow Hobie Cat owners those precious weeks.

Kayaking, Dolphins, and Twitter…oh my

An early morning high tide was my motivation for kayaking before work, plus I wanted to see the bayside docks decorated from last night’s boat parade.

The water was so calm- a perfect setting.

I stopped paddling for a minute near Shelter Haven basin to take a picture for my loyal Twitter followers ;)

However, before I removed my phone from the waterproof bag, several dolphins passed by!

I’ve heard about dolphins in the back bay, but never saw them first hand.

Great work out as I followed the dolphins south until they disappeared toward the bridge between Stone Harbor and North Wildwood.

Repairs to Gas Meter

If you receive this letter from South Jersey Gas or Precision Pipeline Solutions, it’s a legitimate request to update the gas meter.

Based on the “second notice” language on our letter, I obviously dismissed it as well.

The techs need to turn off the gas while they elevate the meter and add new pipes.  Then the pilots inside are re-lit and checked (so access inside the house is necessary).

For many homes, this includes checking the gas stove, heater, dryer, hot water heater, and fireplace.

According to the tech who worked at our home, if owners don’t respond and make appointments, Pipeline Solutions was just granted approval to turn off the gas to complete the work, and then lock the meter until interior access is provided.

This will off course be a huge inconvenience for the next occupant (owner or tenant) because major appliances won’t function until the gas company returns!

If you have gas service at your Avalon or Stone Harbor property , it’s worthwhile to call the gas company to confirm this update.
