My Special Day In Cape May!!

I had the most amazing day yesterday, celebrating my 53rd birthday with my wonderful husband!! I hope you can handle the excitement, lets get down to the good stuff, pictures!!

A ride to Cape May and
two very happy people getting ready for "tea" in the gardens
at The Carriage House Tearoom & Cafe
at the Physick Estate!!
This place is amazing, are you ready.....

First course, scones and blueberry & cranberry tea breads
with clotted cream. I have no idea what that really is but it was awesome!!

Next, tomato basil soup. Mine had a heart shaped crouton!!
Can you handle it?!?!

Tea Sandwiches
Roasted Vegetables with Hummus
Chicken Salad
Smoked Turkey with Roasted Asparagus and truffle mayonnaise.
And a small side of pasta salad.....yummo!!!

On to desert...

Flour less chocolate cake for me...

Blueberry cheesecake for the hubs!!
There might be a piece missing....he always forgets about the pictures!!

Bellies full, the tearoom is behind us!!
We ate outside in the gardens and it was just perfect!!

There was a walk on the beach, collecting shells and I took lot's of pictures of the ocean!!
Cape May has some of the most beautiful beaches in New Jersey!!

There was a little shopping and some bike riding!!

Then dinner at The Blue Pig, this place is amazing!!

Yummy salad with lot's of fresh fruit!!

Chuck's yummy Chicken...and do you see those roasted onions top left,
They. Were. Amazing!!

I had Prime Rib with Mashed Potatoes & Asparagus
It. Was. Divine. 

More Chocolate Cake for desert....it was sinful!!

We always stop at this firehouse for pictures
because they have a great wall to set the camera on!!

A horse drawn carriage ride with "Brutus"!!

Brutus was amazing!!!

The evening ended here at Ben & Jerry's...
You will need a calculator to keep track of how many deserts we had!!

Chuck went for the ice cream...

Hot Coco was my choice!!

There will be several follow ups to this as I took lots of pictures
of nature, flowers, butterflies, the ocean and seagulls.

We had the most amazing day EVER!!

We may be going back this Sunday!!
