Our first view of Cape May, NJ

Shortly after we anchored in Cape May Harbor, this dredging operation went by.  This is just the front of it, but the train of barges pulled by this tug went on for about half a mile!

We had a delicious turkey dinner at the Lobster House.  The boat in the foreground is a bar in the summer season.
