Summer Finds Cape Henlopen

We’ve now had almost a week of summer weather. It seemed it would never come, but its here! I took this photograph of dunes near the end of Cape Henlopen the afternoon the clouds began to break and sun to filter through the overcast. At the time, I had no idea that it was the end of our long, cool and damp spring. However, looking back at this photograph, I can see the change in the quality of light, and the way the breaking clouds allowed the sun to spotlight the furthest dunes was a harbinger of warmer dry weather to come.

How lucky we are in southern Delaware to have this cape protected from development primarily because of Fort Miles and the Second World War.
