Well its here…the final in-season week in Cape May. Its shoulder seasons last gasp. I am writing this on my front porch overlooking Jackson Street. My front porch is my favorite place to sit back, relax, people watch and reflect on the day. Today was a typical late summer seashore day with cooler air and a nice ocean breeze My dog had a perfect dog day. He sat by my side and watched other dogs stroll on by with barely a grumble. He has the good life, lots of treats, friendly rubs above his tail from dog lovers and walks throughout Cape May everyday. We have come to know other dog lovers just by the way he reacts to people he meets. He turns his back to them for a good rubbing. But I digress…
Summer is fading and Fall is knocking. This summer has been very busy. I cant remember a time when Cape May was so busy. It seems as though the secret is out. Cape May is a slice of what is good about life. The town has all the charm and character of a past many of us still yearn for. We read books and watch shows hoping to feel a warmth of the past in our distant memories of when we were young. Cape May does it for me by just by being here in the now. I enjoy the people, there is a constant bustle of life on my street. The horses come by with a clop, clop that makes things just right at that moment. Can it get any better right now I ask myself?
We will be getting ready for the fall and winter season shortly. October brings the annual Oktoberfest on our street. Beer and Bratwurst…Yes it can get better. December brings my favorite time. Norman Rockwell and I get together in small town America and remember what a wonderful life it really is in my little slice of heaven.
For now…no hurry. still a few warm beach days, ice cream at night and long dog walks lie ahead. Life is good!
