view of the bay from Whale Creek Marina toward Commonwealth Ave

Looking toward Commonwealth Ave from Whale Creek Marina.

Whale Creek Marina is closed during the winter, but the shore is still a happening, beautiful place.  Sea Isle City’s Polar Bear Plunge is just a month away!  It’s also a great time of year for oystering, and the weather has been perfect for it.  Remember only eat locally harvested raw oysters in months with an ‘R.’

The word around town is that Corson’s Inlet is going to be dredged soon.  Keep your fingers crossed – it would be a real boon for boaters and fishermen, and everyone who wants to keep enjoying the back bays near Ocean City and Strathmere.

Happy new year from Whale Creek!
