Lucy, Margate, NJ, USA

Lucy is one of those roadside attractions from another era. A giant elephant that looks out to sea in Margate, New Jersey.


Fun for the whole family, this type of thing is. On the afternoon I was there, it was closed. Still something to see. Enjoy the journey.

Cape May Harbor

Cape May, NJ, USA has a beautiful harbor. If you like to watch the boats, there are several vantage points. Here’s a look at the commercial fishing fleet rafted at the dock.


Be sure to check out the sport fisherman, the pleasure craft, and even the paddle boards and kayaks. There’s all types of vessels about. And then, just a short walk away, you’ll find plenty of establishments to enjoy a meal and beverages. Take your time. No hurry.

Verna’s Flight Line Restaurant

Verna’s Flight Line Restaurant has been on my list of places to check out for a long time. It’s located at the Millville, NJ airport, which is a place with tons of history, especially relating to the Second World War and P47 Thunderbolts. Of course, I’m a fan of history, airplanes, and good diners. Hence, Verna’s fits all three bills.

It’s a small place with a short counter and some tables among photos and airplane memorabilia.

Flyers and non-flyers will be at home here. So what about the food? This is a diner (in my humble opinion) so you can expect the usual burgers, club sandwiches, and specials. I went with the club sandwich and a side of fries. Let me say, they were both delicious, perfectly prepared, and served with a smile.

There was another quarter of the sandwich, but I ate it before remembering to take the photo. Anyway, it was all good and reasonably priced, not to mention served within sight of the runway. Can’t ask for more than that.

All the info you need is right there in the photo above. Call before you go as they do close for certain holidays and special events. Enjoy the flight and the meals!

George’s Place, Cape May

Stopped in to George’s Place for a nice lunch in Cape May, NJ recently. This place has been on several TV shows, but I just like local joints that serve up someone’s specialties. Greek food is on the menu, so we started with pita and hummus that you see here.

That pita was super fresh and light, as was the hummus. Then we enjoyed gyros, like the chicken one you see in the next photo:

Dig that sauce! Very good, with some subtlety that I wasn’t expecting. Nice. The tomatoes, onions, and lettuce all crunchy fresh which added a nice contrast. It’s served with those veggie sticks for those keeping a bit healthy. Get a side of fries or something to boost your cholesterol. A good meal with good service. Worth a stop if you’re in Cape May.
