The pandemic put Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweeps on stall. It also gave the Sweeps another category of trash to haul — PPE.
So, the Sweeps are blooming again, COVID-19 style, on Saturday morning — a breath of fresh spring air making way for a clean sweep into the summer season on the Jersey shore. The Sweeps have been popular since their inception, longtime Rumsonite and RFH grad Cindy Zipf at the helm of Clean Ocean Action.
Starting a locals’ summer weekend with the sun and a beach stroll was the way a couple of Rumson-Fair Haven area folks and four-legged friends got their jump start on Friday.
It’s the only way for locals when the sun, sand and surf beckon for a big shoreline hug. They walk, even romp with it — the rejuvenating solace of it all.
Fair Haven Councilwoman Susan Sorensen and Rumsonite Sue Hill Spakowski (and friends) were there in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach to capture the moments and relish the start to, by all fair weather accounts, the perfect locals summer weekend. Sorensen caught the sunrise in Sea Bright and Spakowski’s best buddies (her dogs) caught the best of times “digging” the beach at Little Monmouth.
From the National Weather Service …
Skies will be clear and sunny with temperatures in the high 70s during the day and high 60s in the evenings all weekend.
Thanks to Sue and Susan for sharing the start of their day and a little beach motivation with all!
