How lucky have we been in Port Jefferson to have such great winter weather? Usually we’re bundled up in turtle necks and full winter gear by now. It’s not over yet as we can expect to see temperatures in the upper 40s for the next week straight. Since we’re used to snowfall and rain with lower temperatures during February, you may be wondering what you’re going to do with this spurt of nice weather. As your Port Jefferson real estate agent and community resource, I’ve had the chance to travel around town to find a couple of ways to take advantage of spring in February.
Play Ball (Ladies)!
The Port Jefferson Village Women’s Softball League is gearing up for another great season with a pre-season meeting February 28th. If you’re interested in joining, don’t forget to attend. In the meantime, brush up on your throwing, hitting and running skills with a trip to Harborfront Park or get conditioned running along the shore at McAllister County Park. Make a day of it and bring a snack or two and take a minute to enjoy the air and nature.
Come on out to Harborfront Park next to the Village Center for ice skating on the harbor. In this weather, all you’ll need is a light jacket with your hat and gloves! Open seven days a week until mid-March, the outdoor rink is the perfect place to spend a day or evening with family and friends. If you haven’t mastered the art of skating, the rink also offers ice skating classes and private lessons for those who are ready to take on a new hobby. Do you have a birthday coming up before April? The Village Center may just be the venue you’ve been looking for! If you don’t have a pair of skates, the rink offers both rental skates and helmets.
I hope you take advantage of the weather before it’s too late! It’s not everyday that you can go ice skating in near 50 degree weather, right? If you have any other suggestions on how to enjoy the outdoors of Port Jefferson, feel free give me a call or send me an email. I love discovering new things to enjoy in and around town.
