Well as you might have guessed, we were in Cape May NJ for our mini family vacation. With everyone's busy schedules, not mine, we managed to find a span of time that we could all be together. We left on Thursday and only got back home on Monday. It was relaxing and wonderful! The forecast all week leading up to Thursday was thunderstorms and rain. Would you believe that we had perfect weather the whole time? Seriously it sprinkled a tiny bit on Thursday afternoon and that was it. There was a lovely beach breeze everyday except Sunday that was a little hot on the beach and I withered and went back to the apartment unit.
The kids (yes adults) talked about digging a hole and building a castle. When the hole digging started my daughter kept saying "this isn't as much fun as I thought it would be". I was thinking the exact same thing when they were planning in the car. On our last walk through the beach the hole was still there, a little beaten by the tide.
We have been going to Cape May for a vacation since 1995. Of course there were years that we were unable to go but overall we love this Victorian town. We park the car the entire visit and walk everywhere. That means you can eat whatever you want and not feel as guilty about calories.
I spent a lot of time reading, knitting, and fiddling with the camera. I also spent a lot of time envying other cameras that the tourists owned! I am planning on buying a new one by the fall. I have tons of more pictures of the town and I think I will put them in another post, so stay tuned.......
Oh! I almost forgot! I finished my composition shawl and it just needs to be blocked.
