And I didn't jump off, not that they would let me. Really, it didn't look all that scary from the deck! Although I was happy to be seeing this view from the boat and not the water! Today was one of those really great days. I had planned a day with the sole purpose of getting my husband on the Cape May - Lewes Ferry. This is a man who has been on many a ferry, but never the one in Cape May. I had wanted it to be a surprise, but since I needed his cooperation for the entire day, I had to let him in on it!
Did you know that the ferry is actually 50 years old this year. That's right, it started sailing in 1964! I cannot remember the first time I rode the ferry, but it has always been a fun adventure!
Of course I had to get a selfie of us, that's just something I do! Then I had to get a photo of something Mark has been known to do. That's right, taking a picture!
Today was filled with so many wonderful moments and opportunities to record the beauty around us. One thing I really love is the way the American flag looks against a bright blue sky and I never miss an opportunity to take a picture of it.
Seeing the dolphin off the side of the boat.
Feeling the spray from the wake.
Hearing the seagulls as they circled around hoping for a dropped french fry!
Singing along to Kokomo with the performer on board during our crossing.
Watching other people and their experiences, all of it was magical.
I spent many a quiet moment just taking it all in.
