This weekend I had no plans for a post on The Voyage of DH. Zero. Zilch. None. My plans were for sleep, running errands, going to the gym, doing laundry, and shopping at the grocery store. Hardly the stuff of interesting blog posts. I also ran down to my family’s shore home, as we needed to do some maintenance on the house and my dad needed my help. Still, though, nothing worthy of a post. That is, until Mother Nature intervened.
After driving the 80+ miles down to our shore house and helping out for most of Saturday afternoon, we all decided to head out to dinner to another of our local favorites: Harbor View Restaurant in Cape May, New Jersey. The food at Harbor View is terrific, but the scene that greets your eyes as you look out the window at the Cape May harbor is even better. You can sit back, enjoy your meal, and watch the ships sail past.
As we ate, we noticed the water in the harbor getting rougher, and the sky seemed to be taking on a bluish tinge. Upon leaving, we were greeted by a dramatic storm front coming from the west and moving east, toward us. We all piled into Dad’s car and headed back to our house.
We waited out the storm, watching a really old episode of Law and Order: SVU. During a commercial break, I happened to peek out the window and noticed that the sky seemed brighter. Opening the front door and looking around, I saw that the rain had stopped and the sun was poking through the clouds. In the off-chance that there would be a decent sunset, I grabbed my camera bag, yelled “Gotta go!” to my family, and raced to my Accord. Fifteen minutes later I was at Cape May Point, for Mother Nature’s latest creation.
The rainbow was facing south. Turning west, I was greeted with a phenomenal sunset.
Today I headed home. My first stop was church, and after that I ran the rest of the errands that I needed to accomplish before the work week begins. I have a very cool multi-state trip planned for next week, and I can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime, thanks for continuing to read this site, and I hope you enjoy my posts- even the unplanned ones!
‘Til next time…
