We walked the boardwalk and trail through the marshes, woods, and dunes of the state park. Saw many shore birds. The various trees were identified. If you wish, you can also climb to the top of the Cape May lighthouse.

Came here for a site visit for the beach replenishment. I ignored my business portion and just took in the beauty and splendour. Soon it will be restored to its former glory but for the time being just come here and breath.
