June 23-24, 2017
I had heard about Cape May from my Philadelphia friends for years, as the ultimate beach resort, only they call it the shore. So I spent the day touring while John found a golf course. There really are some awesome Victorian homes, and a beautiful promenade along the shore, but you have to pay to go on the beach.
|Yes thats a mini golf course in the side yard.|
|No free beaches here. Maybe shores aren't free.|
Otherwise its like a really big Cannon Beach, restaurants, mini golf and shops. But I realized how many more people there are on the east coast than the west, because it’s about ten times as big as Cannon Beach. Big enough to support a very good repertory theater. We went to a really good production of Billy Bishop Goes to War.
We got up early on Saturday to take advantage of the tide, because the New Jersey Intercoastal waterway is infamous for being really shallow, but the wind was blowing again at small craft advisories is keeping us here another day. Hope to get going tomorrow.
