It’s February, it’s freezing cold out. So I went camping last weekend.
We didn’t get any big hikes in, but we did head down to Cape May on Saturday in between nights camping at Belleplain. I’ve been to Cape May in the winter several times, but I hadn’t seen it like this before! It looked like the Antarctic!
Closer look. Not much special here, just some snow.
Meanwhile, down at the bay… ice flows? That Scout is standing at the very edge of what is usually the beach.
The view from the top of the lighthouse shows the reach of the ice.
Tom found a whale jawbone. Whales are really, really big.
We checked out the concrete ship while we were down there. Apparently we were late. Earlier in the week, folks were walking all the way out to the ship on the ice!
Ice brought up by the tide what more than knee high!
Overall, a pretty great weekend. Other than camping out Friday night when it was below 0 F.
I’m totally ready for Spring and ice-free trails where I don’t have to worry about slipping with the baby, but the winter can be pretty amazing too!
