This weekend Hope Lodge had their Charter Day Open House. This was so much fun. The Roomie takes us out to local Historical places if they are holding an event of some kind.
Mick likes to visit places beyond the Magic Kingdom. So much to see in the world. Hope Lodge gives a glimpse into the 18th Century.
Michael was in full regalia and making History come alive for the visitors with his Musket display. We learned so many interesting facts about the Revolutionary War. Combat and life wasn’t what we had expected.
It was a very cold day but so worth getting out and getting our knowledge on! Mick told the Roomie he wants to see more. Hopefully we have some cool adventures coming up.
Cape May Lighthouse is very cool. Well lets face it most lighthouses are cool…especially haunted ones. But that’s more a topic for Halloween. Any way, We all took a trip to the Cape May Lighthouse and thanks to the Roomie walking up 199 steps we got to see the incredible views.
Chris wasn’t in these pictures because she was in line for a snow cone at the food truck….sheesh!
Dude it’s high up here!
A Lighthouse with a view.
The Roomie was hot and exhausted but honestly I was okay with her carrying us up the 199 steps. We felt great when we got to the top…HA HA HA!
We were on vacation this past week. And by we I mean the Roomie, Bean, Hazel, Mick, Chris and myself. You didn’t think I was going to miss vacation did ya? Seriously, if anyone needs a vacation it’s the guy with the fractured nose, lol.
Everyone wanted their picture taken. Here were are at the S.S. Atlantus at Sunset Beach, Cape May, New Jersey.
Down the street from Sunset Beach is the World War II Lookout Tower. It was very cool. The tour guides were Seniors who had served or lived during WWII and were from the area.
There were about 150 Steps which was no problem because the Roomie walked them and we got a ride with her. Sucker!
This site has a lot of History. During the war it was a lookout point for German U-Boats. They even captured one-off the coast. It hosts memorials to the soldiers who survived and those who didn’t come home at all. It’s quite moving.
