Water temperature today was 75 degrees. Paul Goldfinger action shot near the Tabernacle.

a.—Boardwalk quotes of the day.  It’s impossible to sit or walk on the OG boards without catching snippets of conversations. Here are two from today  August 25, 2020:

——–“I’ve known him for 21 years, and he has never said ‘hello'”

At the end of the day is another story: Come after 5, and you and your brood are home free, and that is a lovely favor for folks who couldn’t get on the beach at all.  But they have to be careful.

c.  Site stats:   8/19=884 visits;  8/24  756 visits.  Most popular posts:  Aurora, virus extends season, and lifeguards cover the waterfront.   Foreign countries today :  13, including Croatia, Australia and South Korea.
