Yesterday was a lovely day in Cape May County. It started for me somewhere around 5:am. This is what I saw from my back deck. I love the trees silhouetted against the dark blue sky. I had been looking for the meteor shower. That never happened, but I was treated to this picture as the sky brightened.
As the day went on, the temperature rose, the sky became a very bright blue, and there was a low bank of the whitest clouds you can imagine. By early afternoon, I just had to take a ride.
First I tried Cape May City, at the end of Beach, where I had a pleasant chat with a tourist who had a delightful brogue. There were bathers on the beach. I sharpened the picture to bring the distant lighthouse into better focus. You can make it out if you click on the picture.
I drove up Sunset Boulevard, and this was the view over South Cape Meadows.
I continued up to the Point. I always seem to end up at the Point. Must try heading in a different direction sometimes. Everyone you see at the Point has a smile and usually a few friendly words. The place just seems to put people in a good mood.
While I was there, I noticed a lot of activity in the birdhouses by the parking lot.
Here's another shot, plus a close up which is pretty poor. My only excuse is that I can't see the view in the screen of my digital when there is bright sunlight, and I guess my aim is bad.
Not a particularly exciting day - just a very pleasant one.
