Sacred Waters Honor Journey

Kayaks, canoes and boats converged at Higbee Beach June 7 to celebrate World’s Ocean Day. The paddlers traveled the waters from the south jetty at Hibeee to the concerte ship at Sunset Beach. Locally, the sojourn was called the Sacred Waters Honor Journey and included members of the Lenape Tribe.

Snacking, Cape May style

You’re hungry, but it’s not dinner time, and you’re craving…something. Hey, there are no calories on vacation, right?

Clockwise from top left: People line up every summer for Hot Dog Tommy’s. Munch on fresh popcorn and roasted nuts from Morrow’s Nut House. The pizzas at Lucky Bones are great for sharing with a beer. Grab some fried Oreos (careful: they are addicting) at Acroteria. You know you want a fudge sample (plus a pound for later) from the Original Fudge Kitchen. Try a unique flavor combination, like Lavender Honey, at Bliss Homemade Ice Cream.
