Espcially check out this seafood place.  

Linens for all of the beds, towel sets (one for each person) will be on the porch.  There will be 2 bath mats for powder rooms.  I ordered 6 beach towels to augment whatever people bring from their homes.

Wow! Look at this....


This is the 'already built' version of the house we all liked.  It's available for the week we want!

It has the elevator, pool, 1.5 blocks from the beach!

Summer 2009....

Well, there's ice and snow on the ground, and those of us not living in Sunny California, are starting to pine for the beach. An early start will see us sitting pretty this summer. It looks like the week of June 6 to June 13 will work - the Singers will be out east for their college reunion, and the Pittsburghers will be in between school and camp. Rates look good for early in the season: let's work out early!

Here are three properties in Avalon that look awesome: Beach block with pool, etc.  

I will take a look at Beach Haven and other towns on LBI.  Post your thoughts on Avalon!!
