Imagine my surprise when it was JUST like it was way back when! The boardwalk looked the same, Morrow's Nut House was in the same spot, the store where I bought countless beach toys and rented countless rafts was still there, and Carroll Villa was still there.
Even the miniature golf course was still there!! Lisa and Barb kindly wandered with me, letting me take it all in. As we came around a corner, a butterfly flew directly across my path. It made me catch my breath because butterflies to me are a visit from my Dad. Little did I know that butterflies would be a general theme for the weekend. It seemed like no matter where I went, there was a butterfly somewhere that would catch my eye!
The abandoned art that I mentioned in my previous post was inspired mostly by the butterflies, and also by the beauty around me.
I'm back home on the west coast now, cozy in my home in California, but I have a bit of peace knowing that my Dad has made Cape May his special place, and I will never forget the great times I had there with my Dad, walking the beach all the way to Cape May Point lighthouse, eating at The Lobster House, and just being ourselves. Thanks, Dad, you were the very best.
