Joe and I ran away last week. We hadn't been down to Cape May in quite a while, and hadn't spent a night at The Mainstay in a couple of years. The room rates had become uncomfortable for us. But we got to missing that porch of theirs and Joe has been overwhelmed by a project that's currently taking over his life and me, well, I'm always good for a trip to Cape May.

The weekday rates before the end of May are actually tolerable, and so we booked the Harrison Room for last Thursday. We left right after school and had an uneventful drive down. Our kids had given us a gift certificate to one of the loveliest restaurants and we went there for dinner.

Spent the whole day Friday, relaxing on that porch, shopping, driving out to the Point, and actually investigating another bed and breakfast where we will plan to stay next autumn for a weekend. Nice fish dinner on Friday and we were on our way home.

Runaways. That's us.

And why not - after all if your usual place gets too expensive it makes sense to go slightly out of season to prospect for new digs for next time - sounds like you had a well deserved rest :o)

Sounds like a perfect getaway, looks like an incredible hideout!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Cape May. We used to go every year for our anniversary, & somehow fell out of doing this for other places. It is awesome ... love the antique shops.

Glad you had a really enjoyable time.

sounds lovely. I should plan something now for a fall getaway--it will be August before we know it and I'll be sorry I waited. Glad you had a restful and enjoyable break.
