In addition to beautiful Victorians, Cape May has some pretty charming restaurants and shops. I didn’t photograph the former, because it was lunchtime and I didn’t feel like photographing people eating. Too invasive. Here are two colorful shopping spots, though….
I had to de-saturate the color in this, it was so bright. Here’s another in yellow and green….
Speaking of intense colors, check out this place for sale:
Somehow it just doesn’t go with the pastel theme of the other Victorians….
Sorry, I don’t remember what this monument commemorates. Can you believe the height on that widow’s walk next door? The ocean view must be incredible.
Just can’t get over the attention to detail in Cape May. I love the way the wrought-iron gate echoes the design in the gingerbread on this place.
And how about this bathtub filled with coleus and flowers?
The last two places face the beach.
Not Victorian, but still beautiful. Greek Revival, I believe. It looked like a reception was going on here. I would have loved to sit on that wide verandah gazing at the ocean with a cool drink in hand.
I have more shots of Cape May, but I can almost feel your eyes glazing over, so I’ll intersperse them with other stuff in the coming weeks. I need to cut back to one photo per day for a while–it’s summer and I need to be doing other things. I want to overhaul this site and maybe use a new design. Bear with me if you see a total mess some days! How I wish I knew HTML and CSS….
Great weekend, everyone!
