Did I Mention the Dolphins?

After two days of cleaning windows, walls, dishes and floors it's hard to believe that only four days ago, Jon and I were standing on a Cape May beach watching dolphins.

When were through touring the Physick house, we decided to see the Cape May lighthouse, not realizing it was part of a little park with a wetland nature center and incredible beach.

Standing on the beach, near the water, in the rain, taking pictures, we started notice black bumps jumping in the water. It took a few minutes for us to realize they were dolphins. We thought it a fluke but then it turns out that at this beach dolphins feed about three times a day and we were there for lunch. There were swarms of them. We watched them for a really long time.

(Talk about romantic - standing in the rain on a beach watching dolphins. Not too shabby.)

Jon was able to snap off this shot. All I kept getting was water.

They were pretty cool. It was the first time watching dolphins for both of us.

The wetlands were pretty amazing also.
