Easter in Cape May
"Let's go to Cape May!" said Joe when I told him. I didn't argue.
We phoned The Mainstay and decided to stay in a room we've never used before, The Windsor Room, on the first floor of the cottage. I hadn't realized before that it had William Morris wallpaper.
I felt right at home.
On Saturday we walked down the beach for many blocks, eventually arriving at a friend's house. She was outside looking for the Easter Bunny. I told her she was too early. She had been down for a few days and was getting ready to head back to Philadelphia. So we walked on
Later I roused myself from the porch and went shopping. Cheeks at the Beach has clothes that I love, and I spent more than I'd intended. And then went back again for one more thing.
Saturday we didn't want much for lunch, so we stopped at The Ugly Mug for some nachos. That night we went out to The Black Duck where Joe enjoyed a beautiful salmon preparation and I opted for the duck, pictured here. It was another wonderful meal.
I finished embroidering the second of a pair of bibs for "Cinco," grandbaby number five, expected within the month, won and lost some Scrabble games, and began reading Joe Blair's book, By The Iowa Sea, which is just wonderful.
And here are some photos of my favorite subject:
