The First Day of Winter in Cape May, Santa Spotted on the Balcony and a Giant Reindeer visits Carney’s
by Ryan Reclaim on 12/25/12
Well it’s here the official first Day of Winter in Cape May. I shot some local images of Cape May as we prepare for the upcoming Christmas Holiday next week. You can always tell that it’s winter time in Cape May once the yellow blinking traffic lights are on until the Spring Season.
The town is fully decorated and I spotted Santa on the Balcony of the roof at the Virgina Hotel on Jackson street, along with an over sized Christmas Reindeer on the Carneey’s balcony.
