Creating Momentum!: Ocean Drive Marathon, Cape May, NJ. 3/24/13

Great description of what it's like to run the Ocean Drive Marathon (which starts in Cape May and ends in Sea Isle):

Creating Momentum!: Ocean Drive Marathon, Cape May, NJ. 3/24/13: There is not a lot to say about this race. It was not a goal race. I have run it twice now and it never goes well, but that doesn't mean...

Cape May's John Cooke Begins a New Blog

John Cooke
John Cooke, Victorian Motel impresario and President of the Cape May Chamber of Commerce, is one of Cape May's finest ambassadors. He has headed up many new activities in town that draw crowds during the off- or early-season, like the Dragon Boat races in October and the HarborFest in June.  His latest venture is his NEW BLOG titled CookeCapeMay. If you want to know what the insiders know in Cape May, then I recommend you follow John on Twitter and now on his new blog. You can probably expect many photos of sunrises, sunsets, and places off the beaten track on Cape Island. And you may get some commentary on the Cape May-centric news, too.

Best of luck, John!

Westside is the Bestside

If you're looking for a good sandwich shop in Cape May (other than Wawa), then you should check out the Westside Market on Broadway in West Cape May.  Check out the great reviews this deli gets on Trip Advisor.
And as always, I offer this endorsement without any benefit to me. I endorse it because I like it.

Cape May This Morning

Not much going on this morning so I thought I'd just give you a screen capture from this morning. This view is taken live on Monday morning from Cabanas.  That's some serious sand. I wanted to post a photo of the Cove but both web cams in that neck of the wood are down.

Have a good week!

Cape May mayors rally to strenghten seawall - pressofAtlanticCity.com: Today's Top Headlines

Cape May mayors rally to strenghten seawall - pressofAtlanticCity.com: Today's Top Headlines - Mayor Mahaney is pointing to the risks posed by hurricane as a reason to extend the promenade all the way to Poverty. This would also shore up the concrete wall that protects Cape May from the ocean.  Tip of the hat to Mayor Mahaney on this one.  I don't see how anyone could oppose this -- other than simply for tax reasons. The logic of the change is hard to argue and is definitely a good idea.

Venturing up the road to Wildwood & Castle Dracula


Castle Dracula Photo courtesy Dark in the Park Website


Chris Evangelista is a blogger who used to spend time in Cape May.  He has a blog named "The Magic Pumpkin" and yesterday he wrote about his family's annual day-trip to Wildwood and his long-standing fear of Castle Dracula.  Give him a read.

I must admit -- I cannot remember ever going into Castle Dracula either.  It scared the hell out of me, too. I thought it was called Dracula's Castle, actually.

Have a good Monday!

P.S. You should also check out the Dark in the Park website to learn more about 'dark rides' in general and Castle Dracula specifically.
