Morning adventures at Cape Island Wildlife Management Area
Very scenic and tranquil area off of a Cape May backroad (see map screenshot). I drove to the end of Cresse Lane to get here. The dirt road access is very rutted up so proceed with caution. The area looks like it is mostly used for hunting and as a swimming hole. Very nice meadow section which appears to be a former pasture. A migratory Kestrel flew off as I entered the meadow.

A historic (and beautiful Cresse house) is just before the WMA on this street. It looks like the Cresse family has been in Cape May for a long time https://www.capemay.com/blog/2009/11/whalers-the-link-to-our-past/
There is so much more of New Jersey than most folks think.
I still remember the time we got lost in one of those places, and we were quite a sweaty mess by the time we found our way out!
