Cape May Point in the Snow 2014

Cape May Point, NJ  -  Beautiful Cape May Point had a shimmering quality the morning after the latest snowfall, from the dune paths to St. Peter’s by the Sea Church.

Everything in this tiny hamlet took on a new appearance,  not anything like the Point that summer tourists are so familiar with.

A bike outside The Red Store, buried several inches deep in snow, looked like the rider had just gone into the Point’s only store for a quick cup of coffee.

Vintage homes were blanketed right up to their doorsteps in snow.

One nearby house, with its conical evergreens dusted with snow, could have stepped right out of a Currier and Ives painting.

Lily Lake had a new look, pure white and frozen over.  If you didn’t know better, you might have mistaken the lake for a snow covered field.

The Point’s a quiet place in the winter and the snowfall made it seem even more so.

Even the heart of the town, the Cape May Point Lighthouse,  had a solitary feel to it this morning.   Instead of a busy parking lot, the famous landmark was set off by a striking field of white.

It won’t be long until the town’s alive with summer residents and tourists again.  For the moment, winter residents can enjoy the peacefulness of Cape May Point in the snow.
