Come Along for a Sunset Cruise on Barnegat Bay (But Storms Expected This Weekend)

We caught an amazing sunset Tuesday night on Barnegat Bay and the Metedeconk River, and we had to share it above! Hope everyone enjoys. The weather forecast, however, is somewhat mixed.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a beautiful week – but storms over the upcoming holiday weekend – ahead.
