Two weeks ago Bob and I went to Wildwood and Cape May for a long weekend, to celebrate our fifth(!!) wedding anniversary. We stayed at the 1950's Caribbean Motel in Wildwood for two nights. We stayed there once before, the only other time we went to Wildwood and Cape May, almost two years ago. This time we paid a little more, and got a better room, with an amazing 50's style bathroom. The shower tile was my favorite part of the room! the shower was HUGE, with one wall having white, red, yellow, blue, and green tile, and the other having green and blue tile.
Wildwood is a mecca of 50's motels. There are so many fabulous neon motel signs around that I love to check out and take pictures of.
The ride down was fine; there was no traffic, just on and off rain to contend with. Luckily it stopped raining by the time we arrived in Cape May, and didn't rain the whole time we were there. It was sunny and 80 degrees the whole weekend.
When we arrived in Cape May we went to lunch, and then went to a few shops. I bought some Christmas ornaments, and an antique Christmas Scotch tape container. We stopped for ice cream in Wildwood, and then went to our motel to check in.
We went out to eat at a Welsh pub that evening, and walked to a couple of outdoor bars afterwards for drinks. The next morning I took an early dip in the heated outdoor pool, and then walked over to the beach, which was just across the street. I layed out and read, and went in the ocean, too, but the water was cold, and I didn't stay in too long each time. Bob went in too, and even put his head under water.
Saturday afternoon after the beach we went to an Irish pub for a late lunch. They make orange crushes there, which are my favorite summertime drink, so I had a couple of those.
We went to an Italian restaurant for dinner that night, where we both had ravioli. We were both tired, so we had an early night, and left early the next morning, but made sure to stop at a bakery in Wildwood on our way out. We had never been there before, but I had read reviews online. They're known for their apple fritters. I had one, which was warm, and SO delicious!
