Lost in Translation?

There are several quirky words/phrases commonly used by island residents.

Here’s a quick primer:

The Five & Dime (original reference for Hoy’s 5 & 10)

Off shore (description of the mainland communities; typically Cape May Court House)

Second Avenue (Dune Drive in Stone Harbor)

Third Avenue (Ocean Drive in Stone Harbor, AND a street near the inlet in Avalon…confusing!)

Gully (tidal pool)

Sandbar (the high spot in the ocean just past the gully that the lifeguards allow you to reach mid tide)
