Three Days of Fun

Wednesday was a rainy day, and Rob decided he wanted to stay at the motorhome to watch movies, so that's what we did. We rented a movie from Redbox which was a new experience for me. I'm sure we'll use that again on the road.

Yesterday dawned clear and sunny, a perfect day for miniature golf. We went to Avalon to play. This time we kept score. Rob played his best game yet and I almost beat Bob, tieing him foe first place.
 Afterwards we went to the sea wall and looked out at the ocean. There was quite a surf out there with lots of whitecaps.

We topped off our time with an ice cream cone. It was a nice day.

Today was our last full day in Cape May and we drove to the Cape May Lookout Tower not far from the lighthouse.

The Tower was used during WWII to watch for enemy ships in the shipping lanes between Cape May and Delaware. Not many people realize that German submarines patrolled the waters off the coast of NJ and actually sank 26 U.S. ships. A docent at the top of the Tower regaled us with stories of that scary time in American history.

After our visit to the Tower we drove to the Lobster House for lunch. Bob had a really tasty lobster salad and Rob enjoyed his burger with fries. I was disappointed in my fried clams. And service was really slow. But we enjoyed our meal anyway.

One last long swim in the pool and our day was done, and it was time to get ready for the trip back to Cherry Hill. It has been a nice twelve days here.
