I have visited South Cape Meadows hundreds of times over the past thirty years. Sadly, it is no longer what it used to be, but I have many photographs to remind me of what it once was. In this picture, taken a few years ago at sunset, the Cape May Lighthouse can be seen on the distant horizon.
Please take time to view the many other pictures entered in Sky Watch Friday from countries all over our world. You will find the list at Wigger's World, with our host, Tom.
In answer to some questions in comments:
Thanks to all of you,
South Cape Meadows, where this picture was taken, was always a beautiful natural area until about a year ago when the land owner, Nature Conservancy decided to "improve" it. They went to work with a federal grant I understand. It is now nice and neat with clean, straight paths and bridges, mowed grass, etc, and they now charge a fee to go in. So far as I'm concerned, it's ruined, although the birds are starting to find their way back. I do also hear that the township has an easement across the property, to the water, so I'm hoping that in the future we may be able to reclaim at least a little of what we once had.
