Cape May NJ

  I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday 

May 4th....Happy 24th Anniversary to my hubby!

Hubby and I celebrated our 24th anniversary a little early, we headed to Cape May & Atlantic City NJ on Thursday for an overnight getaway.. We had a great time walking around the Cape May beach near the lighthouse and on the trails..



 A foggy lighthouse scene and some scenic views from the park trails and a Yellow Warbler.


 A pretty male Yellow Warbler singing..

 Above one of many Yellow Rump Warblers, Brown thrasher, Eastern Kingbird, Mute Swan, turtle, Cardinal, Chipping Sparrow and Mallard Ducks.



 We saw a lot of the Yellow Rump Warblers in Cape May.



Above is a cute Piping Plover and an American Oystercatcher and some Sanderlings on the beach.



The fog and misty weather was clear before we left the Cape May Lighthouse Park. Hubby and I joke about how the weather always clears up whenever I go on a trip.. Cape May was just the start of our getaway, I will have more photos to share later in the week. Thanks for stopping by and for the comments.


Join in on the fun and for more wonderful photos please visit  Mosaic Monday and more
 from  Our World Tuesday

 Thanks to our host: Mary our host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  I wish everyone a happy week ahead!

  13. Happy 24th wedding Anniversary to you both Eileen - well done!

    Beautiful birds and I always love seeing your lighthouses.
    In your mosaic the middle pic looks like a yellow snake to me!
    My husband always loves seeing your birds and we can't believe how beautiful they are.

    We have only a few native birds and the ones brought by settlers are very common Sparrows, Blackbirds, Starlings, Thrush - no pretty Warblers, Chaffinch, Cardinals or Wrens sadly.
    The Thrush is my favorite - I love their song!

    have a happy week Eileen
    Hugs
