Who says these are the “dog days of August”?

Things are busy here at the Jersey shore. This is the week of the annual Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair, the big fund raiser for our volunteer fire department. They’ve got rides for the kids, games of chance, and lots to eat and drink. People come from miles around, and it’s probably the only time of the year when we have traffic jams every night on River Road in the heart of town.

It’s not all fun and games, though. Lots of people are going back to school after Labor Day, and a few have already started school. With Labor Day falling on September 3rd, doesn’t it seem that summer’s ending a little bit too soon? For the second year in a row the deer and the rabbits have enjoyed my garden’s vegetables more than we have, and this year we even had a groundhog who decided to join in. They don’t seem to like the peppers, rhubarb or the herbs, but they REALLY devoured the Black Prince tomatoes!

The real estate market normally sees a lull during the months of July and August, but homes have been selling fairly well. Here’s a list of the homes that were sold (closed) in the first half of August:
