Sand Castle Bed and Breakfast
Summer weather at the shore fooled the weathermen as usual this year…..we heard reports about rain in New York, North Jersey, and Pennsylvania in July and August but the sun would be shining down on LBI! The ocean was clear and blue and warmer than usual but no jellyfish! We are so lucky to have this piece of paradise as our backyard. Hopefully you were able to take some time away this summer. If you haven’t tried the north end of LBI, consider scheduling a little break here…..you too will be hooked after you enjoy our pristine beaches, picturesque sand dunes, unique little shops, well maintained homes with flowers blooming in pretty gardens, and that slower pace we often long for but rarely find.
As summer slips away, I look forward to fall…..my favorite time of year. The crowds are gone, the beach is still beautiful and the nights begin to get cooler. Sunsets are spectacular and dinner specials are more available. The first weekend of October brings us the nationally recognized “Chowderfest”, where chefs from area restaurants showcase their best red and white chowders and the general public serves as judge, voting for the best in each category. This event is held in Beach Haven, so the traffic has no impact on Sand Castle guests.
