Well, spring has arrived and so has another so-called nor’easter. At the very least, it’s not bird-chirping, flower-blooming spring weather in the Rumson-Fair Haven area.
After a few gloomy, dank, rainy days, the sun came out on Wednesday, the tide was low and people, ducks and dogs took to a little solace in the sun down by the river in Rumson.

“Good luck out there!” a man shouted as he waved to crabbers launching their boat into the water, all set with a plethora of fishing-appropriate nets, cages and buckets.
Saturday evening was looking pretty mellow as a few more boats hit the waters of the river by the Rumson Municipal Boat Launch for the PBA Crab Tournament.
The tournament was slated to last until 10 p.m. By about 6:30, about half an hour after the tournament’s official start, only a couple of boatfulls of crabbers could be spotted near the launch.
