It was our last full day in Cape May and, unfortunately, the weather forecast wasn't looking that great. But we were up and out for our morning walk and breakfast at Coffee Thyme as usual.
We started out poolside. It was warm but mostly cloudy. We played some cards and did some reading and then it was time for lunch.
We decided to try Cape May Peanut Butter which was a new shop in the mall area this year. Earlier in the week, we had walked inside and saw that they made their own peanut butter and they made fresh sandwiches. I absolutely love peanut butter...to the point that I have decided I can't even have a jar of it in the house because it will constantly call my name. So this store was awesome!! As I said, they make their own peanut butter and have some different varieties, like honey roasted or almond. They also make baked goods and other items, like peanut brittle. For sandwiches, they had the basic PB & J but also some other options. I opted for "The King" which was peanut butter, banana and honey. You can chose your bread also and I chose Texas Toast. I also bought peanut brittle to take home to my husband and a handmade peanut butter cup that had peanut butter and caramel inside. Let's just say, I can't wait to go back next year!! The sandwich was excellent. The bread was fresh and there was a generous amount of peanut butter inside. The peanut butter cup was about 3 inches in diameter and it was heavy. It was also excellent and you could tell it was freshly made. I also got to sample the peanut brittle when I came home and it was top quality as well. I will definitely be returning there to try more items next year.
By the time we were done with lunch, it was completely cloudy and it just wasn't going to be a pool day. So my sisters and I decided to go shopping in the mall. While we do walk around the mall every year, it has really been awhile since we have gone shopping there. There were some shops that we walk by every year but we have never been inside. We had a good time going from place to place. No big purchases were made but it was a great way to spend the afternoon.
That evening I met some friends for dinner and the rest of the gang went to dinner at the Pilot House in the mall. Apparently, ownership has changed and they did notice the difference. It went from a casual restaurant to a more fine dining experience. Although we liked the previous casual atmosphere, their report was that they did enjoy their meal.
I came back to the room and we went back into the mall for one final dessert treat. For me, it was a peanut butter and chocolate swirled frozen custard in a waffle cone. YUM!
Then it was time to pack up, watch a little TV and call it a night.
I have been a huge Disney and travel fan since childhood. I love going to new places and, of course, heading to Disney as often as I can.
