Gardens of Congress Hall

Here are some photos of the gardens of Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ.

We stayed here earlier in the week and enjoyed doing a whole lot of nothing other than eating/drinking/swimming/laying around.

Good times.

I’ll have a comprehensive post on the entire vacation week in the next few days.

Our vacation

We just returned from a week’s vacation in both Cape May, NJ and Virginia Beach, VA.

Here’s what went down:

The weather was ominous to start the week but when we arrived at our hotel in Cape May – Congress Hall – we dumped our bags and made it onto the beach:

That night it was raw oysters and mega amounts of seafood:

And some beverages for the adults:

More beach time:

And maybe one of us slipped away to check out the grounds of the hotel in greater detail:

The kids were so into it, I could talk them into doing anything:

We were all feeling kind of good, come to think of it:

Dude is now hooked on coffee (but decaf) just like his dad:

When you are on vacation, you eat cookies in bed:

 Our larger crew in an awesome family pic (thank you for taking random stranger):

 And in a flash, we left our temporary home:

… and prepped for the next phase of the trip:

We took the Cape May Ferry to Lewes, Delaware:

And once on land, we made a pit stop at the Dogfish Head Brewpub, aka Heaven.

I highly recommend the “Wheetle” by the way.

Momma took the keys and we drove the three hours down to Virginia Beach to stay with family.

We ate dinner directly on the Chesapeake Bay one evening and had stunning photo opportunities with the sunset:

And actually hung out under the Chesapeake Bay Bridge:

And more sunset on the beach pics:

 The remainder of the trip was all about eating, drinking and chilling in the pool … and also whiffle balls:

And getting jealous of plants I can’t grow:

And handstands:

Sucks to be back home but we have memories that will last a lifetime.
