BELMAR - Residents throughout New Jersey spent the unofficial end to the summer outside on a beautiful day.

One couple from Woodland Park described the sunny, warm day as "just perfect," and spent their time relaxing in the rays.

Others around the state spent Labor Day swimming, surfing, jogging and playing ball. Business owners along Ocean Avenue said the summer was a successful one, despite a few wet weekends.

Kids enjoyed their last summer hurrah before most schools around the state start up tomorrow or Wednesday.
