This my friends is part of the REAL Jersey
Shore, not the kind you see on TV.
It is old fashioned.
A place I can find antiques and nostalgic things!
A place where candy and beach lovers delight!
Shopping is fun, too.
You'll take a step back in time
whenever you set foot in beloved Cape May.
The inns are quaint and romantic.
This one is all ready for the Fourth of July.
The planters are a lovely shade of
blue and are shaped like big shells.
Did you know Dear Hubs and
I were engaged here?
Only it wasn't quite like it is now.
Back in 2002, it was called The Inn at 22 Jackson.
Now it is the Red Cottage.
And I of course, messed up the proposal a bit.
Dear Hubs had it all planned out to happen across the street at a very elegant restaurant.
Paid the piano player to have "Summer Wind" music in the background.
I instead, started chatting with the couple who had just sat down near me as the pianist began the song.
Dear Hubs gave up!
But he finally proposed at the inn where I was staying.
The other B&B's on the same street.
This is only a small portion of the gorgeous Victorian's in this lovely town.
And I haven't even shown the beach views.
We (Mother and I and Dear Bebe) took Dear Hubs out to eat
for Father's Day.
He loved it. And I was entranced once again by the wonders of Cape May.
There is even a song written about it...
Happy July 4th... I'm linking to Pink Saturday for a patriotic celebration in red, white and blue this week... or maybe even in Pink!
Enjoy, be safe, and may God Bless America!
