Fall Preview

It’s already starting to “feel” like September.

Cooler temperatures for my beach walks.  The streets are quiet mid-week…and the crickets in the beach path are so LOUD.

Oh, and the colorful views!

Cedar Island 5K Swim

CedarIslandSwimIf you have access to the bay in Avalon today, cheer on the participants of the 5K swim around Cedar Island (yes, that’s the official name of the large marsh land between 7th and 20th Streets).

The race starts at 2:45pm from the Avalon Yacht Club, heading south along the main channel, turning east along 20th Street, and then north along Ocean Drive back to the Yacht Club.

A Tim Kerr Charities event:  http://timkerrcharities.org/2012/  –  a total of 150 swimmers in the water…plus volunteers on paddle boards, jet skies, and kayaks for support.

I will post pictures this afternoon on Twitter.

Better Weather

Clouds are clearing after a stormy night.  We needed the rain…and best when overnight rather than ruining a Friday beach day!

Monday Sights

Walked by a group of serious “fishermen” earlier this morning.  The view made me smile!

Describe a Beach Vacation

To borrow from Seinfeld…a beach vacation is mostly about “nothing”.

This thought occurred to me yesterday as I packed the cooler for a beach day with visiting family.  Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peaches, and red licorice (the essential food groups).  And of course ice cream money for the Fudgy Wudgy guy ;)

Simple structure:  breakfast, beach, dinner…repeat.  Mix it up occasionally with a bike ride, and maybe some time on the bay.

The only calculation needed is knowing the tide schedule to secure the best spot near a lifeguard.

Life is good!

How’s Business?

It’s been an incredible 2015.  I am so grateful for the repeat customers, referrals, and new business this year.

BaySo, what’s selling?

An ocean front, 2 beach block properties, 2 bay front properties, several newer homes in various locations, townhouse style condos, and a few modest homes on prime lots.

Selling prices range from the low $400,000′s to well over $3 million.

My time in real estate continues to pass quickly.  I sold a bay front home to a couple in 1985; and was able to help with the sale again in 2015. A mere 30 years!

Many of my sales are with long time customers.  I value the years of trust and friendship.

If you would like a market update for Avalon or Stone Harbor, I am here to help:   609-967-7950  or ann@anndelaney.com

Thanks!

Family Reunion

Family copyThe MANY descendants of a young lad from Northern Ireland, and a wee girl from the Republic of Ireland gathered yesterday at the Cape May County Park.

Their 6 children pictured (1 died as an infant) expanded the family even more with 21 grandchildren.

The 2 surviving daughters (on either end of the picture) attended the reunion, as well as 2 wives of sons who passed, almost all of the grandchildren and their spouses, and many great grandchildren.

The family ties to Avalon, Stone Harbor, and Ocean City go way back, and continue today with the younger generation.

Fun to laugh about childhood memories, and confirm that  ”Yes, I was Grandmom’s favorite” ;)
