    Cape May

    July 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This morning we packed up to move to Andrew and Kelly's Inn in Cape May itself. They have just bought another property and it happens to be empty this week so we have the place to ourselves. The Ashley Rose is a 7 bedroom Victorian mansion which has been converted to a bed and breakfast. The rooms are old fashioned and quite luxurious. We each have our own room. Mine has a king sized poster bed and a lovely little bathroom.

    Andrew and Kelly showed us around their other inns - The Casablanca and The Harrison. These are Victorian houses which have been converted. The rooms are stunning. Each room is different from the rest.

    After lunch we went to an historic village. We learnt about basket weaving, pottery, blacksmithing etc. They had a falconer there and he showed us his birds. He had a gorgeous baby owl which was soft to pat. We had a lovely time and we learnt a bit. They also had very nice ice cream!

    In the afternoon, Andrew, Eva, Mercina and I went to the light house. 180 steps to the top. A great view. I learnt quite a bit about the area. The hardest part about walking up 180 steps is getting back down!

    We went for a walk along the beach and I finally dipped my toes in the Atlantic Ocean!

    Back at the house now for a rest before the evening's entertainment
