So back to day one of our ladies only trip to Cape May this past June.
We arrived mid afternoon and check in was easy. Our rooms were on the bottom floor about 4-5 steps up from the parking lot which made unpacking the car very manageable. We take advantage of the kitchenette by bringing all the veggies and fixings for our own salad bar for lunches each day. We also had cases of water to last us for the trip.
It was quite hot so after unpacking and a little organizing we headed right to the pool! It was beautiful! The pool area was nice and quiet and often that afternoon we were the only people in the pool.
For families, there is a wading section at one end of the pool that has a full fence across so the little ones can walk around in the water without straying into deeper water. Then there is a 3 foot shallow area and that is sectioned off with a rope from the deep end that goes up to 9 feet. There are lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas all around the pool area.
After cooling off for a few hours, it was time to get ready for dinner. It was my sister's birthday and she had chosen Tisha's for dinner, which is a favorite of all of us. One of my favorite things about Cape May is that you can walk everywhere. Tisha's is located right across the street from our motel in the Washington Street Mall.
If you look at the picture, you can see our car in the bottom left corner and the start of the Mall right by the flag pole.
We had 6 pm reservations at Tisha's and were seated right away. Tisha's, like many restaurants in Cape May, is BYOB. (Although we took note that on the table this year was a small menu of Cape May wines.) We had brought a bottle of wine which our server took care of right away. We have never been disappointed with the food at Tisha's and tonight was no exception. I enjoyed broccoli rabe sauteed in garlic over grilled polenta as an appetizer. For an entree, I had pasta with shrimp in a vodka style sauce. We did order dessert and while everyone thought their desserts were good, we all concluded that will all the dessert choices out in the mall, that would have been a better option.
After dinner, we had planned to go to the Boiler Room, a bar located in the basement of Congress Hall. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that it wasn't open that evening. But we were determined to have a drink to celebrate my sister's birthday so we went into the lounge area of Congress Hall, a well known, historic hotel in Cape May. The lounge was busy but not overly crowded and we were able to locate seats in a corner with some chairs and couches. We all ordered a drink, and a few of us did a shot of tequila (!), to celebrate.
It was a fun night and a great way to start off our time in Cape May!
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.
