Cape May National Wildlife Refuge

Noelle, Sierra and I headed on a beautiful morning to explore part of the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge.

We drove north on Route 47 to Kimbles Beach Road and towards Delaware Bay. We started off with a hike on a portion of the Songbird Trail through the maritime forest.

We stopped every now and then to look for birds,
Sierra the birder
but we didn't see a whole lot.

After our short  hike we headed down to the beach.

It's a pleasant little spot

We found a few interesting shells, including this razor clam.

We walked to the point where a small creek flows into the bay

and turned around. It was a pleasant way to spend a beautiful day with family!
