Cape May in deep freeze!

It’s February, it’s freezing cold out. So I went camping last weekend.

We didn’t get any big hikes in, but we did head down to Cape May on Saturday in between nights camping at Belleplain. I’ve been to Cape May in the winter several times, but I hadn’t seen it like this before! It looked like the Antarctic!
