April 2020

Uncertainties about the coronavirus in April kept me close to home, on most days just visiting locations I could reach from my home on foot.  Fortunately April is a dynamic time in the natural world here in Cape May.  Here are a few photographic highlights from the month.

The Washington St. Mall would normally be bustling on a pleasant April day, but the COVID-19 pandemic was raging in April 2020, stores were closed and people stayed close to home.
