St. Mary's by the Sea

My youngest daughter and I visited St. Mary's By the Sea in Cape May Point earlier this summer.  We attended daily Mass on a Monday morning, and I recommend that you too visit for Mass if you have the time.  The Mass schedule is not online but I believe they have daily Mass at 8am for the public during the summer (please call and doublecheck).  This retirement home reminds me of the Chalfonte in the way it reflects a building from another time in Cape May's history, before modern amenities took over the tourism industry. Definitely worth a visit.
Just be respectful and quiet!
The views are spectacular.

A Fish Story You Won't Believe

A Fishy Federal Prosecution
Last week, I had the opportunity to file a friend of the court legal brief with the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of commercial fishermen throughout the country, including those involved in the local Cape May commercial fishing industry represented by the Garden State Seafood Association.  In the case, we speak up for a Florida-based commercial fisherman who found himself facing a federal prosecution for white-collar crime, based on three undersized fish the fisherman caught in the Gulf of Mexico. I thought this prosecution was both unfair and unconstitutional, and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to explain to the Supreme Court why I thought so.  I am grateful to Pacific Legal Foundation, and the six commercial fishing associations, including the Garden State Seafood Association, that allowed me to represent them on this legal brief.

You can read the legal brief here, you can read the fisherman's story here, and you can read my other, more detailed blogpost about this work at my employer's blog right here.

Love the Re-Born Two Mile Landing!

Last week I had the opportunity to visit the newly re-born (well, by about a year) Two Mile Landing and Crab House Restaurant. If you don't know Two Mile Landing, you should! It's located on Ocean Drive between Cape May and Wildwood Crest.  From Cape May, you should drive over the main bridge and then hang a right on Ocean Drive at the light (before the Parkway).  Drive past the fisheries, etc., cross the Ocean Drive bridge (it's free going to Wildwood, $1.50 coming back) and then Two Mile Landing is on your left.  My family and I regularly visited Two Mile Landing many years ago, but it had been at least two decades since we last visited. I'm glad it's back and re-opened after it shut down several years ago, and I'm glad my family has begun visiting again!
