Colleen and I drove from Philly down to Cape May, NJ in the fall of 1988 and stayed at a Captain Mey’s Inn (B&B). It was a photography weekend and Colleen joined in and took several good pictures of me. We got some good pictures from the lighthouse and the local bird observatory.
I was working on the east coast for almost a year in 2013 and 2014. I visited with Mary Kate many times and we went up to visit Joelle Wickens (First Cousin) in Wilmington, DE one weekend. It was a chilly January day and Joelle took us up to Longwood Gardens and we had a great day exploring the Conservatory with an amazing orchid exhibit.
Longwood Gardens were established by Pierre du Pont back in 1906. Longwood Gardens consists of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square, PA in the Brandywine Creek Valley. It is one of the premier horticultural display gardens in the United States.
