Last Day in Cape May

Final Cape May post, I promise. There was just so much wonderful stuff that happened and I love reliving it!  Much to my delight, we ended the week the same way we began it...with a trip to Uncle Bill's Pancake House. First time around I got the peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes and this time I got the strawberry stuffed french toast. Which is odd, because I rarely order pancakes or french toast or anything bready / non-carnivorous for breakfast. Baby must like maple syrup! Anyway, you can always supplement with bacon, right?

After breakfast we hit the beach. Elliot was no less enthralled than he was on the very first morning. I could listen to that kid shriek with joy at the incoming waves all day. "Look, a big one!" he would shout at every single wave. So stinkin' cute.

In the afternoon, Elaine and I took some time to ourselves and toured one of the town's famous Victorian house museums - The Emlen Physick Estate. Though our oddly dressed tour guide did his very best, the tour itself wasn't all that exciting (and no pictures allowed, BOO), but the bookshop sure was interesting...

Before meeting the boys for dinner, we popped by the biggest, fanciest hotel along the beach - Congress Hall - for an early evening cocktail (Arnold Palmer for me, woohoo!) and relaxing lounge in the deck rocking chairs. There was a wedding happening on the lawn of the hotel, and we had front row seats!

Rounded out our evening with a fresh seafood dinner on the boardwalk, some fierce skee ball competition at the arcade, a family photo booth squish-in and a final visit to the fudge shop. Easily my favorite spot in Cape May.

Highly recommend this lovely little town and hoping to be back on many future visits. 

Already planning our Cape May escape for next year!


Thank you for visiting! A penny for your thoughts...
