Mark has always wanted to see the Cape May Lighthouse in operation. While the light is illuminated 24/7, it can't be seen during the day, so we timed our jaunt to pay the lighthouse a visit after dark. As we were approaching Cape May itself, the sun was going down.
There's a gift shop close by, so we bought some items and asked for directions to the lighthouse. We were close enough to throw a rock and hit it. By the time we finished in the gift shop, the sky had darkened enough for us to see its light. So a few minutes later, there we were.
Mark said the light can be seen for 26 miles.
Next time, we will take a day trip instead, as it's open for tours then.
Today's mileage isn't as impressive as the last few days' efforts, but hey -- vacations should include SOME relaxing, right? :)
