The Crazy Suburban Mom: Cape May-ing it

Cape May-ing it

I've been in Cape May, NJ the last few days and oh. I sure needed a break from that painting the bathroom thing.  I can hardly step into a bathroom without shaking.

See, it's taking beaucoup coats of primer to cover what's in there but I don't want to talk about that.   I've really never talked about where I stay in Cape May; always the same place.  The Grand Hotel.

There are a lot of amazing (and this is really what Cape May is famous for) Victorian Bed and Breakfasts and high end places like Congress Hall but I keep going back to The Grand Hotel.  It's across from the beach and if I have the door open I can hear the surf and well, to me that is huge.  If I can't sleep at night I go out on the balcony - Balconies, reason two - and it calms me.  And then there's the indoor pool.  Maybe there is another one around but I've not found it...

The rooms are nice...

They've been redone since I first started going.

bathroom

The tub is long enough for a 5'9" person to stretch out.  I like that in a tub.   A lot.

kitchen

There's a small kitchen area outside the bathroom with a fridge and a microwave.  They will give you a two cup coffee maker if you ask but I always bring my own because trying to deal with my morning coffee in a two cup maker is like trying to bake a wedding cake in an Easy Bake Oven.

bed

The beds are comfy and new.

couch

And there is a sleeper sofa/seating area but for me it's being so close to the ocean and the balcony that makes me come back.  It's waking up in the morning and seeing the sunrise.

Oh you lucky duck! I wanna go to the beach!

We haven't been to our beach in over a month. I live in Va Bch but we go to Corolla NC OBX on the weekends during the summer... Mom has a house there - it is my sanctuary. I can so relate to the sound of the ocean!
