The Crazy Suburban Mom: Cape May

Cape May

Every year, in the fall, I go to Cape May, New Jersey.

It's empty. The stores have closed, the season's over...

Walking away....

I go to take pictures...

I miss the ocean...

I love this time of year in Cape May.

On giving and generosity...

The dawn...


The night is very cold; sharp and sparkling - like the inside of an ice crystal.

a ways away

It's the quiet, I love. It's almost something you can feel around you.

I miss the ocean even when it's calm...

The silence.


Just me and the pebbles; the only things on the beach those mornings...


And all that room to breathe ...

I love going to the seaside at that time of year.

So calm and quiet.

Lovely pictures, and you're so funny -- Wordless Wednesday and you're all yak yak yak.

I know exactly what that's like. Going to Cape Cod in September / October once the summer crowds have gone home is my absolute favorite.

Those are some fabulous photos. They're so evocative, it's like everyone just up and left. Which, I guess, they sort of did. Thanks for sharing it with us. :)

Absolutely gorgeous photos. I used to go to the Jersey coast once a year, this brought back a lot of fond memories.

Thank you for sharing this group of photos. What I like best was the quietness and peacefulness that I sensed from these shots. Somehow the cold seemed to push me away from it and yet the peacefulness drawn me strongly to it.

love, love, love the beach in winter....I used to go down when I lived in Sydney and watch the stormy wind whipping against the ruff surf. These pics are very nice.

Beautiful! and no truer words were spoken. My husband took me to Ocean City for my 40th birthday - I'm a January baby! Seems crazy but it was only a few hours away and cheap. We were bundled up like Eskimos and yet, it was just as you say - quiet, breathtaking and oh so peaceful. We had an ocean view room and laid in bed watching the sunset - I was overcome with emotion and couldn't take my eyes off it until the darkness came and made it a memory I will cherish forever.
