Guess what! I've been in Cape May, NJ since Wednesday and tomorrow morning I'm going home. If you know me at all, you know that going home is the best part. I miss Frodo, my house, my coffee maker, my bed, my internet speed and gosh....just my regular boring life.
We were lucky that our son came with us on this mini vacation (I missed my daughter and son in law who could not come). This is a much needed vacation since my husband's job was stressful last year. Now that he is back to being a professor, stress is slowly ebbing away.
Thanks to this dutiful blog, I was able to figure out that the last time we were in Cape May was in 2011 with both kids. I have wanted to go back since but school schedules of three people made it impossible.
We had fun saying remember when, checking out stores to see if they were still in business and remembering all the previous summers spent here. I love Victorian history and even did trolley/estate tour to soak up the information.
The first time we went as a family was 1995 and pretty much yearly after that until the kids were older teens. I have fond memories of sitting on the beach with a child and a toddler - enjoying the toddler's nap time so I could knit.

Overall we had excellent beach weather!
Yesterday was quite windy and my umbrella was unusable. I got an hour of direct sun that unfortunately is not good for me even though I tried to blanket myself with a towel. I am sun sensitive because of my disease and my medications. Today, I have a funky sunburn rash reaction on my legs and feet (yes I did use sunscreen) - so I have stayed out of the sun all day today. I hope tomorrow it magically disappears. I should have known better and left the beach.
I'm going to miss: hearing the ocean from my bed and breakfast suite, shopping little boutique stores, eating desserts, reading endlessly, having someone giving me fresh towels daily, breakfast on the wide front porch with a peek of the sea :)
All of the photos are from the iphone. I have yet to tackle the Nikon photos. Maybe Tuesday?
How was your weekend?
P.S. I hope to visit all of you within the end of week, I missed your blogs!!
