A Good Day in Cape May

We decided to stay two nights in Cape May, so instead of leaving the dock this morning, we had the chance to sleep in and have an “off” day. We did some boat cleaning and organizing, and started to plan our travel north from Cape May to New York City and beyond.

A man and his dog paddled by.

Our looper friends Jim and Marilyn arrived today. We arranged a ride to dinner in town in the Cape May Free Ride electric car. (Advertisers cover all costs, so passengers only need to tip the driver.)

After a good dinner at Oyster Bay we strolled to the Atlantic Ocean beach to put our toes in the sand, and then walked along the busy downtown Washington Street Mall.

Rhonda shopped for some provisions at the local ACME supermarket. Remember Wiley Coyote and the Road Runner? (FYI, Rhonda could not find Acme rockets or artificial rocks – “Have fun! Be popular! BE A ROCK!)

Cape May boasts many beautiful Victorian homes built in the late 1800s as summer homes for wealthy families. Many were later converted into apartments and B&Bs. Our driver told us that over the past year many of those B&Bs have been purchased for very high prices and restored as homes for wealthy families. A cycle.

It’s a peaceful evening in the marina as we prepare for tomorrow’s trip to Atlantic City.
