She invited me to the very first "2nd Friday-'By the Bay'. What a delightful evening! Mingling with local artists, tasting oyster stew and other seafood delicacies, and more delicious homemade refreshments! Enjoying folksy guitar music on the dock, and learning something of our rich maritime history in South Jersey!

This is a painting of Eastpoint Lighthouse, in Cumberland County,built in 1849. It fell into disrepair, then was later restored
and is a very popular local artist subject. It is also a place where the Monarch Butterflies stop before their Autumnal Journey to Mexico, and this can be quite impressive to observe. To learn more about the lighthouse history and tours, please visit www.njhs.org/links.html

When I tried to make a square knot,
He told me it turned out to be a "granny knot".
I thought he was kidding me!
