Perfect Day on Cape Henlopen

Yesterday, we took a visiting friend out to our little cape. July cooperated by giving us the most delightful summer weather imaginable.

If I were only twenty-something again, I’d be out there in a second. Air temperature 80 degrees Fahrenheit, water temperature, 73 degrees Fahrenheit, Sun intense, waves, medium, Cape Henlopen magnificent! We sat on the rocks for an hour watching the young folk do their surfing. I created a little story in my head, that the younger man sitting on the rocks in front of us was actually a dad, watching protectively over his children in the water.

We also went for a long walk on the beach, and drove out to the end of the cape to look at the lighthouses out in the Delaware Bay and the dunes wrapping around from the bay to the Atlantic Ocean.

Just throwing in a little known fact here - the dunes on our little Delaware cape mark the highest point on the Atlantic beaches between Cape Cod and Cape Hatteras.
