A summer week in Cape May #13

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This lead and set are images of the Wildwood amusement park rides....pretty empty with the rain....the comparison of Cape May (where there is no where to go and nothing to do--one of its charms), compared to the heavy tourist stuff in Wildwood.

Thanks to Isabel for your UA for my last images, about a week and a half ago.

I was at a craft show two weekends ago, got home last Tuesday in time for dinner...unloaded my van on Wednesday, spent the rest of the day at my desk, taking care of business.....Thursdayi morning took Karen down for her weekly chemotherapy...and that afternoon headed down to Rock Hall, MD to meet four of our friends on our charter boat, Intention, and spent the weekend, Friday through Sunday, sailing on the Chesapeake Bay....Friday and Saturday warm, with strong winds on Saturday...we knew a cold front was coming in around mid afternoon on Saturday...sailing in 20-30 knot winds, with reefed sails. The storm came in,with us safely at anchor at Greys Inn Creek, off the Chester River, on the Eastern Shore. Sunday was much cooler, and still very strong winds.

Busy yesterday...so...I am back. Will look at as many photos as I can tonight....Karen and I were watching TV together earlier.

Great photos…wow your life is so busy, seems a nice mix of work and play. Hope Karen is doing ok with her Chemo. Meanwhile in Melbourne we are still in lockdown…most locked down city in the World.

Your lead for some reason triggering the Springsteen song" tunnel of love " in my head Peter ..funny how that happens with certain images and peices of music.
Glad to hear you managed one more sailing trip together before it gets too chilly . My best wishes to you and Karen,
Cheers

A lovely collection captured here, Peter, of a very wet funfair.

Lovely photos Peter
They remind me of the English seaside in the rain

The 3 photos in your lead, decorating the top of the ride, are of my favourite city on earth ... Venice
From left to right:

The Salute Church where next February 24 I hope to be at an organised Venice Carnival costume shoot. I have been to two before. I would guess 100 costumes and 100 photographers!

Burano Island where very house is a different colour!

The Rialto Bridge

Well now "Entry of the Gladiators" is firming stuck in my head for the next two days! I was a midway fanatic in my day.
