We spent the day with Christopher and his wife Amanda in Cape May which is located at the southern tip of New Jersey, where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. It was recognized as one of America’s top 10 beaches by the Travel Channel. It deserves this ranking. It is terribly quaint, has historic houses and a beautiful beach. Well, to be honest only Don saw the beach because unbeknownst to us you needed to purchase a tag to go on the beach. Don negotiated his way on to the beach to take a few pictures.
We visited the Cape May Lighthouse which was built in 1859 and still operates today. Don and Christopher climbed the 199 steps to the top while Leslie and Amanda made the sacrifice to stay on the ground so we could be in a picture (we are the two little dots in the picture). We also went to the Cape May winery (sixth picture) and did a wine tasting. We found out that grapes grown in New Jersey make pretty good wine.
We highly recommend both the restaurants where we dined. We had a small lunch at The Lobster House which is right on the water. We had Oysters Rockefeller, Barbeque Oysters, and Clams Casino. We had outstanding seafood dinners at the Black Duck Restaurant and as you can tell from the pictures it is very quaint.
