Well our original plan for this day was to relax from our trip from New York yesterday by spending a lazy morning or afternoon at the beach. Unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans. We awoke to pouring down rain, and the rain persisted on and off through out the day. The beach was out. Instead, we took our time getting up and going (a rare treat!), did some boat chores, wrote the blog and read some of the many books we brought with us (on the Ipads, of course). It wasn’t terribly exciting but it was relaxing.
Later on in the afternoon the rain finally abated, so we took the opportunity to get off the boat and stretch our legs. We got a taxi into town and then strolled around many of the beautiful streets in Cape May. We also managed to get some beach time in, albeit from a distance, by walking along the boardwalk. The waves were really kicking up under a stiff wind, and we were grateful that we had come in from NYC yesterday rather than today. We had a very nice dinner at the Merion Inn and then headed home to the boat to get ready for our trip up the Delaware Bay and River tomorrow.
