A Beach Walk in August

We’re headed into the last weekend before Labor Day and what is considered the unofficial end of the summer season.  Every summer in mid-July when the days are long, Cape May is filled to the brim with people, and the air is thick with summer heat, I have the same thought that the summer will… Read more »

A Valentine’s Day Proposal

We just received this story and wanted to share! Congrats to David and Megan. “My niece’s boyfriend just proposed to her today (2/14) on the beach at Beach/Brooklyn Avenues. He wrote in the sand WILL U MARRY ME?” – submitted by Barbara Parker

After the nor’easter

On my drive down Seashore Road to work this morning, I saw the sun this morning for the first time in four days. It was a little reminiscent of the feeling on Christmas morning, having spent the last three days holed up with my dogs, listening to the wind shake my house. I always like… Read more »

The Tent at Steger Beach

I am a creature of habit. I wake up every morning, have a glass of water, eat my chocolate Special K cereal, shower, and then continue on with my day. Just as I like having my morning routine, I like having my beach routine. Steger is my favorite beach, and there are only two places… Read more »

Guard the Stand

When you first walk on to the white sandy beaches of Cape May, the first thing you think, besides “oh my gosh, my feet are on fire,” is “where am I going to sit?” You could sit by the water, where it’s cooler and more crowded, or farther back in the sand, with more room… Read more »

Summer To Do List

I am a huge supporter of lists. To do lists, grocery shopping lists, random lists, really anything in list form. So it should come as no surprise that when I plan my time in Cape May, there are always lists in accompaniment to my vacation. I thought my creating to do lists was something I… Read more »

Hermit Crabs: A Live Souvenir

Picking out the absolute best souvenir to bring home from Cape May, was one of my favorite parts of vacation as a kid. Shopping is one of my favorite activities, so I always spent a fair amount of my vacation time perusing the stores. Two weeks in Cape May was usually the right amount of… Read more »

Sand or Cement?

The beach will always hold a special place in my heart. The sandy shores and forever crashing waves are so unique to every location and just about impossible to perfectly recreate, but we’ve made something that comes in for a close second. Maybe not a close second, because the beach is so hard to beat,… Read more »

Beach Habits

I have always loved going to the beach when I visit Cape May – who doesn’t? My family has always been peculiar when it comes to our beach habits. My dad does not like the ocean or the sand, hence a few years of us all wearing the most blister-inducing sand shoes ever (they let… Read more »

Beach Light By Night

When the sun is out, the beaches are always jam-packed. The smell of sunscreen fills the air and Laughing Gulls are hovering at every chair to snag some food the moment that someone turns their back. While the beaches are always filled during the daytime, I look forward to the one time of year where… Read more »
