A long weekend on Long Beach Island is a treat. Lobster and clams from the local clam shack, crabbing on the bay. Sunset strolls by Barnegat light. Mac and Jennifer rent a quaint cottage so Mac can meet local clients for Meet us at the Beach photo sessions. September is the best month to visit when the summer crowds have gone, the air is still warm but fresh and clear. We love the beach cottages that line the walk to the beach.
