Barnegat Light

Located on the north end of Long Beach Island, Barnegat Light is one of the most unique places on our island. It’s know for it’s quaint and peaceful environment, Barnegat Light has the widest beaches on LBI, and is one of the busiest commercial seafood ports on the East Coast, and the Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is a very popular tourist attraction. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, wide streets to bicycle on, and beaches with open space, Barnegat Light is a must-see when you’re at the Jersey Shore!

Hubby and I are planning to do the Full Moon Lighthouse Climb here in September!

Hurricane Preparedness

So much is happening not only in the US with disasters, but all over the world. Hurricanes, Wild Fires, Floods, etc… I haven’t felt much like blogging with all that’s happening here in the states. This is just the very beginning of hurricane season and already Hurricane Harvey has left a wake of destruction and insurmountable loss. These lists were created for disasters here in the United States, but dangerous natural disasters happen all over the globe so I don’t think list items change too many things from country to country, other than of course, emergency response numbers, radio stations, etc…

As the Eastern coastline, Puerto Rico, Florida, and all the gorgeous islands hunker down, evacuate and prepare for Hurricane Irma’s arrival I just wanted to put this out there. And just a note to remember that things like tornado’s and tsunami’s give little to no warning. But you can be prepared for those natural disasters that do give warning. Please evacuate if you can and don’t leave your furbabies behind! Don’t be stubborn, if you can get inland, get inland.’

Be safe!

XOXO

United States Hurricane Season

Post Weekend Blog – Hands Across The Sand

18588934_1314472921939746_6418179450578168124_oWow, we had a super busy weekend! And this is how Saturday began, Hands across The Sandย at the Virginia Beach oceanfront with Oceana Virginia , Chesapeake Bay Group -Sierra Club,ย Mothers Out Front – Mobilizing for a Livable Climate, Surfrider VB, several more climate/environmental organizations and hundreds of concerned citizens and activists. Our goal is awareness –ย ย ๐ŸšซDon’t Drill VA!

18620908_10213391457127127_7898819957987108825_o
Caroline Wood – Oceana

We had an amazing turnout!ย We drewย a human line in the sand in protest to drilling off our coast and in support of clean energy, like offshore wind. Off shore drilling would have a profound negative impact on our environment, our local businesses, our beaches and our citizens.

 

 

This weekend has only reinforced that fact that we have to be even more vocal and more active within our communities politically to be the change and keep our country beautiful, clean and environmentally safe!
