Wonderful Day

Aug 15, 2018

To the Editor:

We are writing to you regarding the “Day on the Bay” event we recently took part in on July 29. This wonderful event provides special needs children and adults with the chance to take a boat ride and enjoy the sights and sounds of Barnegat Bay that many of us take for granted when living on the water.

Our boat ride from our home on Bayshore Drive to Sherer’s Boat Basin was a short one. Once we signed in, we were immediately assigned our first group and took them on a “cruise” to explore the open water. Luckily, the bay was calm, the skies were clear, and a breeze was blowing.

Each of our three trips was 20 to 30 minutes and enjoyable for all. The children’s and young adults’ smiles were worth the world to us. They all wanted to “go fast!”

This day was truly a highlight of our summer. The joy we experienced was heartwarming and will stay with us for a long time to come. Even Santa Claus could not miss the event!

Also, a big thanks to Sherer’s for organizing such a wonderful event. We look forward to participating next year.

Chris and Linda Walters
