Cold Spring Village's timeline was a little different this year. It was extraordinarily humid, which made the restaurant and ice cream shop on site must-go destinations. The groups present were also moved around a little bit. The "Number Two Section" had gone for an Indian Mutiny display while the Royal Sussex represented the 1880s through the 1940s. Other groups there were Union and Confederate Americans, a Connecticut Revolutionary War unit, a Civil War artillery battery, Persian Gulf, German U-Boat landing party display for WWII, and 1812. We had some good crowds and a lot of public interaction on and off during the day. We were hit briefly by a quick shower which did not abate the humidity, but no harm was done. All in all, Cape May remains a favorite--not just for the timeline, but also for the chance to tour around the area, visit the beaches and boardwalks, and kick off the summer with good friends.
