August 2012


In the August issue, Cape May Magazine takes to the sea with two features – Set Sail and take a journey back in time and A Labor of Love: Saving the Tuna. We took a ride aboard the A.J. Meerwald – a 115-foot oyster schooner, built in 1928, left for timber wood in the 80s and brought back to life in 1989 by an angel who goes by the name of Meghan Wren. Fisherman and photographer Stephen Spagnuola tells us the tale of the Tuna – a 75-year old fishing boar, built and designed by the late Captain Bob Bennett, saved and restored by his good friend Captain James Klotsas.

And if it’s history you like, you’ll love Bob Elwell’s feature The Windsor Hotel: One of Cape May’s Queens. This is a two-part series. Part One: A Legend is Born, tells of the Grande Dame’s heydays. The late 1800s and pre-World War II decades were filled with summers of elegant dinners and notable guests. Part Two: The Sad Finale will run in the Fall issue.

And, of course, we have our loveable regulars, Persnickety Chef is in a crabby mood – he shares some yummy recipes with us. Speaking of crabs, Stefanie Godfrey takes her young sons crabbing – or at least tarries to – in this month’s Day Tripping, and Richard Crossley, our Brit’s Eye columnist, talks about Migration Mysteries.
