is the place of the oldest European settlement in Cape May County. Tradition
has it that whalers from New England came here in response to reports of
numerous whales in the Delaware Bay. The last (or first) house north of
the Cape May Canal is called "Angel Point" by its owners. The house is
an easily recognized landmark from the Bay and is shown at the left below.
At the end of Ferry Road there is a parking lot which is a favorite place
for viewing awesome sunsets. The center picture below shows a pre-sunset
gathering there. One of the main landmarks on the beachfront is Whaler's
Cove restaurant and bayside bar and deck. The picture on the right shows
Whaler's Cove as seen from the edge of the beach. This area of the beach
is very active in the summer. Sunbathers, sailors, kayakers, anglers, and
beachcombers share the ambiance.
