Jon and Kate Gosselin spend Memorial Day apart. Surprised?

Jon weekend  Kate weekend

TMZ just happened to get a shot of Jon Gosselin knocking back a beer with two lady friends at Front Street bar in Newburgh, N.Y., on Memorial Day.

And surprise, there goes Kate -- minus Jon -- plus a chunk of their eight -- getting off a ferry on Bald Head Island, N.C.

Do you think absence is making these hearts grow any fonder?

Is it finito? Your thoughts?
