Labor Day brings the summer season to a close. I grew up near the Jersey Shore on the Atlantic Ocean and loved my hot summer days and warm nights in Atlantic City (before casinos), Wildwood, Cape May, Ocean City (and the bars at Five Points), and Brigantine. Now I’m just a few miles inland from the oft-foggy and chilly Pacific Ocean. Summer along the Coastside is brief and it seems it sometimes begins and ends in September. It’s still marvelous to feel a warm beach beneath my feet and listen to the surf turn pebbles into sand. The summer season may be gone but my love of the shore will never fade.
