While it’s only the beginning of August, our summer is basically over. August marks the beginning of our busy seasons at work. We wanted to soak up one last weekend together with no work obligations hanging over our head, so the beau planned a day trip to Cape May for us. The weather threatened to ruin our beach day, but we had a back-up plan of visiting some of the south Jersey wineries if that happened. Thankfully, the weather behaved, and we only had a few sprinkles on the beach.
The only thing I knew about the Jersey Shore was everything the Jersey Shore taught me. With that in mind, my expectations were pretty low for Cape May. And I couldn’t have been more wrong. The Victorian houses turned into B&Bs, the fun font used on street signs, the colorful umbrellas dotting the beach, everyone riding around on bicycles…it was so quaint and charming and QUIET! Definitely not the Jersey Shore’s Jersey shore.And then there was dinner. We had planned to drive back to Philadelphia for some Ethiopian food (my fave), but we were too tempted by the adorable restaurants. We decided to grab dinner at the Lobster House on our way out of town. The food was good, the view was better. :)YOLO! Note to self, don’t judge the Jersey shore based on the Jersey Shore.
p.s. I apologize for the poor quality photos. I lost my DSLR battery. Replacement should be here tomorrow!
