To quote the sad hope sentiment in that red-headed orphan Annie song, “The sun’ll come out tomorrow.”
According to the National Weather Service forecast, it will. It will also peer through the clouds a bit on Wednesday. The rest of the week is a dank April showers washout.
So, here’s a little clear day’s view on the Navesink at the iconic Barnacle Bill’s and looking toward Highlands from the Shrewsbury at Sea Bright. The glimpse is a reminder of soothing sunny days and a better outlook for spring and summer.
Here’s that forecast for the Rumson-Fair Haven area … (And click on one of the photos above to enlarge and scroll. Enjoy the view and sunny springtime outlook!)
It’s always good to get a leg up on brighter days, especially when it involves a simple riverside adventure, a friendly hand from a childhood friend.
The picture says it all.
Soaking up the sun on the horizon is more than symbolic these days. Basking in it all at an iconic spot down by the Navesink River at Barnacle Bill’s in Rumson is, well, tradition. But it’s more poignant than ever as we begin to head out of pandemic darkness and into the light. Better weather ushers that better view into a fuzzy warm focus.
Hey, R-FH area old timers (cringe), remember Mr. Chartier, Knollwood School principal and later Fair Haven district superintendent?
Well, his son, Michael, a longtime area actor, is on stage this weekend in Phoenix Productions’ Spamalot at the Count Basie.
The younger (well, sorta) Chartier is starring as King Arthur in the zany musical adaptation of the classic film, Monthy Python and the Holy Grail. And it’s opening at 8 p.m. at the Red Bank theater on Monmouth Street.
