Hello guys! I had a giant deal with this weekend: a ladies’ journey to Cape Might, NJ, considered one of my favourite locations ever. 🙂
I used to be there with two of my greatest associates from school, Turner and Kris. Turner’s household owns a home in Cape Might and so they very kindly allow us to use it for the weekend. 🙂
We’ve been crashing their place in Cape Might for a few years now and I at all times love spending time there! Final September the women and I did a ladies solely weekend journey there as properly (2018 recap half 1 + half 2). This weekend was much more superior as a result of we didn’t have to fret about coming again to the home to pump a number of occasions a day. 😉
All of us arrived on Friday round 8p.m., simply in time for a later dinner. After 5+ hours within the automotive (plenty of visitors) I used to be able to have a drink and a few meals!
We headed proper over to Mayers, a yummy spot we went to final yr, too, and all cherished. We began with drinks (I had a yummy bitter beer), the kale salad, and the broiled oysters to start out. All scrumptious!
Then we acquired two order of the fried scallops and fries to share – plus some sauteed spinach for good measure. 😉 Every thing was delish!
On Saturday morning, we slept in after which Turner and I headed out for a brief jog!
We ran alongside the beautiful seawall with views of the water!
We ended up doing 2 miles which was advantageous with me – my proper knee was bothering me a bit close to the tip so I used to be glad we weren’t doing extra. Unsure what’s happening with that – it was hurting slightly within the automotive so possibly it was from all of the driving?
We met Kris at a espresso store, Out There Espresso, afterward, and I used to be adventurous and acquired the “Cashew Later Latte” which was a blended latte with espresso, cashews, and coconut oil. Sounded attention-grabbing! It was tasty and likewise a bit filling which was good as a result of I used to be hungry. 🙂
We walked round a bit with our espresso exploring – I really like all the lovable neighborhoods and Victorian homes in Cape Might!
Finally, we hopped within the automotive and headed to The Pier Home for breakfast. I had a scrambled egg, veggie, and potato bowl that hit the spot. Plus a facet of bacon. 🙂
The remainder of the afternoon was spent like this:
And likewise enjoying within the waves, which had been sort of intense on Saturday! It was an ideal seaside day – not too scorching, not too chilly. I really like going to the seaside in September – not so scorching, however the water continues to be heat, and the crowds are quite a bit smaller too.
We finally headed again to the home and acquired cleaned up, then biked again into city and stopped at The Virginia Lodge, which has the cutest entrance porch and nice drinks and appetizers. Prosecco, please!
We shared the deviled eggs and the broiled oysters (soooooo good – and delightful presentation too) for a snack.
Plus the fried squash blossom, which was additionally superior.
After our drinks + snacks, we walked round and did slightly purchasing, killing time till our 8:15 dinner reservation at an lovely spot known as Louisa’s.
It was tiny inside and sooo cute. Try the toilet with the blow up whale within the bathtub – so enjoyable!
To start out, Kris and I shared a beet salad, which was scrumptious.
And for my entree, I had the Lemon BBQ Salmon. All of the entrees include brief grain brown rice and slaw, and all the things was soooo good. I used to be obsessive about my salmon – the sauce was superior.
For dessert, we shared the bread pudding. The vanilla one was scorching and fairly good, however not the perfect ever:
The chocolate one was simply so-so – it was chilly which was bizarre for bread pudding, we thought!
Such a enjoyable evening!
On Sunday morning, Kris and I took a stroll to the espresso store whereas Turner relaxed, then the three of us biked the few miles over to Seaside Plum Farm, an lovely spot we hit up final yr, too.
It’s so fairly there – we ordered on the counter after which strolled round a bit having fun with the grounds.
I had the bacon and cheddar frittata, which got here with some yummy salad, for my brunch.
I used to be nonetheless slightly hungry afterwards so I acquired a croissant and a juice (carrot + ginger + pear = yum), too.
We biked again to the home, stated farewell to Turner who needed to get residence, after which Kris and I went all the way down to the seaside for one final hurrah within the waves. It was a lot calmer on the market on Sunday!
I used to be unhappy to say goodbye to the women, however grateful for such a deal with of a weekend! And don’t fear – Matt and Riese had a complete blast collectively, as at all times. He went out and acquired a motorcycle trailer together with his good friend Shane and so they took her on her first bike experience – what enjoyable!
I’m off to make amends for emails and different work – benefit from the day, associates, and I’ll catch you again right here on Wednesday!
