Saturday Afternoon

So after our afternoon walk, the gals came in and rested and Jim and I got ready to go to Mass in Cape May, where our home parish is located. For a January afternoon,it was a pretty day!

We always go over the West Cape May bridge, which affords us a bird’s-eye view of what’s going on in the Cape May canal.

After Mass, we walk around and see what’s going on in Cape May.

Usually, on the way home from Church, we stop at the Cove Beach, where today we were lucky enough to catch the sunset.

In all, a wonderful afternoon!

And Behind Door Number Three? Molasses Paddle Search continues…

IMG_5997

We took my Mother-in-Law to Mass last night, as I had to work today. We go to Mass over in Cape May at the Washington Street Mall church called Our Lady Star of the Sea.

I took advantage of this situation to go to a favorite spot of mine, The Original Fudge Kitchen.

I figured Douglass still had my heart, James/Fralingers was quite a disappointment in molasses paddles;why not try Original Fudge Kitchens’?

My disclaimer here is that I adore their fudge.I only buy it once a year in the end of January when they have their customer appreciation sale.It is, indeed, the fudge of my childhood and brings back some loving memories.

I purchased their dark chocolate molasses paddle.At first, when I picked it up, I thought,” Whoa…wide like Douglass? Could it be?” Unfortunately it was not as thick as Douglass’, but overall, I would put it in a 2nd place” could have almost been the molasses paddle of my childhood, but not quite.

Douglass still rocks.

Anybody see the Titanic?

When Jim and I were coming home from Mass today, we decided to go down to the bay and see what was going on.Boy, were we shocked!

I have posted pictures of Delaware Bay when it was frozen solid.A few years it was an odd sight for us, but unfortunately,it has been a common sight here of late.Today when we were down there,we saw icebergs….seriously….icebergs! I am used to seeing icebergs in the North Atlantic or in books about the Titanic, but in Delaware Bay? I have never seen them before.

It’s a sad statement on the environment,in my humble opinion,when things are that screwed up with our earth.It would be nice it people would wake up and try to save out planet! Just be aware of the environment and try to be a good caregiver of it.
