ADVENTURE TIME! No, really, I guess it’s just time to talk about my adventures and share a few photos before I add more to the list!
I’m meeting AA later. Not for anything special. We’re just hanging out. So, I figured I’d kill a few minutes by making this post.
I’ve also got to figure out SEPTA. We’re going to the city tomorrow night for a show, and I want to take the train. I haaaaaate driving in the city! It might be easier than figuring out how public transportation works, though. I don’t live close enough to have regular encounters with it. Such is life.
ANYWAY, back to the whole point of this entry.
Saturday afternoon, Daniel and I headed down to Cape May Point to climb the lighthouse and explore the walking trails at the state park. It was actually pretty anti-climatic, but at least I get to cross it off my list.
According to my Fitbit, walking to the top was equal to climbing 13 flights of stairs. I was proud of myself for not being too winded at the end.
Here’s the view from the top!
…and the abandoned WWII bunker…
Walking back down was a lot easier than going up. I especially like this photo, enough to make it my cover photo on Facebook.
The trails were a little confusing and disappointing, too. I was hoping for a nice, long trail, but the longest was only 2 miles. Some of the paths were closed, too, making it into one giant, confusing mess.
I did see a muskrat, though. I had never seen one before, so YAY for that. I’ll admit that I thought it was a beaver at first. Daniel corrected me, but only after I yelled, ‘BEAVER,’ and everyone looked at me weird.
Another redeeming quality is this view…
We had some dinner at The Court House Diner in Cape May Courthouse. It was delicious as always.
After we were done, we headed to the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge. We were meeting up with some friend we hadn’t seen for a long time to watch the sunset over the bay.
If you clicked the link for my summer to-do list, you’ll notice I’m crossing a bunch of stuff off of it lately! Haha.
Dusk is my favorite time of day, and I love watching the sun set…
….especially over the water!
It was really cloudy at the horizon, so it wasn’t too spectacular. It was still beautiful, though!
Yesterday (Sunday!) we went across the bridge to meet up with Megan and Dave (and Charlie!!) to take the train to the city. I’ve lived in this area for 5 years now, and I have never explored Old City Philadelphia. So, yeah, I spent yesterday being a tourist.
It was CRAZY HOT (as it’s supposed to be for the rest of the month) so we were all gross by the end of the day, but we had a great time!
We hit up all the normal spots (without actually going into them), such as Independence Hall, City Tavern, Liberty Bell Museum, The Betsy Ross House, Ben Franklin’s Grave, etc. It was a good day.
We had dinner at The Sang Kee Duck House in Chinatown. It was amazing, guys. Seriously, you should eat there if you ever find yourself in Philadelphia’s Chinatown.
So, yes, fun adventures happened this weekend, and some fun things are in the future as well.
I just wish it would stop being over 90F outside. I do not enjoy this weather. I was watching the news, and they said that we’ve had 13 days with highs above 90F so far this month. They also predicted we’ll have at least 10 more. DO NOT WANT.
I guess I’ll stop rambling now. Time to clean up and get ready!
What fun things did you do this weekend?
