So I've been in minor-panic mode since I started investigating the details about going to Cape May this fall. I emailed Mary at Mary's View, hoping for advice on what package to pick, where to stay, etc. etc. You know this is only my second birding festival, and my first fest was scary enough -- and it was just a fledgling one out in the wilds of PA. Cape May is HUGE! and my previously documented fear of getting details wrong played a big part in my eyes-glazed-over reaction to the registration form for the Fall Weekend. If Kat were coming along, I'd feel oh so much safer, but she'll be doing grad-school stuff, so I'm on my own. Eek!
Then this morning I checked Birdchick's blog as I do every morning, and lo and behold--a light in the storm! Thank you Birdchick!
If you're even CLOSE to Cape May, and you'd like to meet some hardcore birders (and some not-so-hardcore birders, I'm sure), check out the Cape May Autumn Weekend web site. Hope to see you there!
