On the Way to Cape May

Last week the Bella
household went on a
vacation. No working,
no remodeling of the
lake house,
just a real vacation.
Kind of rare these days.
We tend to work
during our vacations.
But this trip was
all about the sun,
the sand, and the waves!
This is a sandcastle
built by the Hubs.
He can't sit still ...
even on vacation.
We did take a side
trip to Cape May
for some antiquing.
So beautiful!
Look at these old
Victorian beach front homes.
This one is called the
Angel of the Sea.
Another beauty named
"Morning Star Villa"
Makes you just want
to book a room,
doesn't it?
Then there was this
grand hotel...
Now you must know
I was in a car taking these
pictures as my Dear Hubby
drove along Beach Avenue.
It was such a gorgeous day!

You can even see the
Cape May lighthouse.
The tippy tip of
New Jersey!
After a little sightseeing
we found an antique mall
to check out

There were a few things
I liked...this celluloid collar
box for one...

Of course, it is the
one that got away.
I decided not to buy it!
What was I thinking?

There were only a couple
of things I was able to buy.

A vintage book on shells
(which I am debating
about keeping)
and a bunch of smaller
iron horseshoes.

Hope you enjoyed
my mini tour
of Cape May.

Did you know there
was a song written
about this special
tourist destination?

 "On the Way to Cape May?"
Check it out, here.

Enjoy the day!

Oh, I love Cape May! The houses and beach atmosphere was so fabulous. We went when my son was about 2 years old and didn't know that the mascot there is a shark. My son had become deathly afraid of sharks and what did we see in storefronts, on ceilings of gift shops and everywhere? Sharks. A vacation I will NEVER forget!
