Last week I somehow managed to take trips on the only two sunny days. I say somehow because both trips were planned in advance. And in fact when we left for Cape May on Wednesday it was raining. Happily the skies cleared and by the time we were heading home we had spent a beautiful day outside. Just before leaving we stopped by Higbee Beach Wildlife Management Area and scouted the area near the canal for an eider which we did not see. Nevermind, the beach and the sun are always enough.
