Well, it’s the first weekend in June and it looks like the first beach weekend of the year here at the Jersey Shore. After 3 inches of rain last weekend though, I’ll take any kind of weather that isn’t wet. Hopefully wherever you are reading this will have nice weather as well and we can all have a nice relaxing weekend! Be back on Monday!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
