Fall for me is a time of warm memories with my family growing up.

Of course I have memories of every season but Fall for me is my favorite season of all! I love cooler weather. The changing color of the trees, leaf piles, apple picking, pumpkin carving… and I could go on. Of course it also represents work on our homes to prep for the coming winter months. Darker and shorter days. But for me, it’s a happy warm memory.


Cheers to making new Fall memories for you and your family!

Fall at the Jersey Shore brings a lot of change. From cooling temps to blinking traffic lights, all signs point to the upcoming winter. While the area may still be buzzing on the weekends with visitors drawn to the seasons many festivals and events, summer residents are busy closing-up their homes.

Emergency Plans for Your Pet

Here we are in Hurricane season 2020, forecasters have predicted a higher than normal activity for the season. It's important to have a plan in the event there is a need for evacuation. While living on the Jersey Shore is normally peaceful, we are aware that we are prone to the devastation of wind, flooding, and erosion.

Knowing what and where you can take your pets during an emergency beforehand can make the difference in their well being and yours!
