OCEAN CITY, N.J. (CBS) – What a difference a week makes. It’s the last big summer weekend at the Jersey shore and both vacationers and merchants are glad things are back to normal.

Scott Wahl, a spokesman for the Borough of Avalon, says beachgoers are finding only minor erosion from Irene.

“Up and down the Jersey coastline, including Avalon, the beach towns are open. The beaches are in shape.”

And a week after Governor Christie told vacationers to evacuate the shore towns, people are now coming back.

Cape May city business manager Bruce MacLeod says merchants could use a good holiday weekend after a rough week.

“We did lose four business days in there and probably a fifth, if you count Monday for the businesses and everyone else to clean up and get operations back up and running.”

MacLeod says otherwise, it’s been a good year in terms of numbers of visitors to the shore.
