May 20, 2016  - Day Trip to Cape May, NJ

Lynnette and I -- well, mostly me -- had wanted to fly down to this weekend's AOPA fly-in in Beaufort, South Carolina but bad weather nixed that.   Lynnette suggested a day trip to nearby Cape May, New Jersey where the weather was good.  So that's what we did.  It was a short 45 minute flight to get there.  Here we are crossing the Delaware Bays with Cape Henlopen visible in the distance. 
Land ho!  Cape May dead ahead.
Approaching Cape May Airport (KWWD) which has a very helpful and friendly FBO and well as an on-field restaurant.  There is also a museum featuring U.S. Naval Aviation as this airport was a Navy dive bomber training base during WWII.
The airport is much too far from the beach area to walk so we caught a cab.  A half hour after landing here we are on the beach walkway with the brightly colored vacation rental places in the background.
The town of Cape May is small enough to see by foot.   This is main street with a bunch of restaurants, bars and stores.
And of course there is the beach.
After five hours or so in Cape May, we caught a Uber back to the airport, fueled, and mounted up.  While we were getting the plane ready, a couple arrived at the airport, walked up to that jet, climbed in, lit the fires and took off!  Nice.
Checking out Cape May as we departed.
A little closer look at the town.  Hanging out at Cape May is not a bad way to spend the day.
