One of the perks of living in the Philadelphia area is that there are so many options for getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. From a two-hour drive to the Pocono mountains to a less than two hour drive to the Jersey shore, there are many choices to getting away for even an overnight trip.
A couple weekends ago, Beau and I took off on an overnight trip to the Cape May/Wildwood NJ area. We stayed at a quaint little Bed & Breakfast (The Sea Gypsy) in Wildwood where we got to meet and chat with another couple at breakfast. We rode bikes together around the area, walked the boardwalk, and ate at a local diner. (Sidenote: I love diners, and am partial to ones in New Jersey. Late nights at a college in North Jersey did that for me.) The next day we ventured off to Cape May. We ate expensive ice cream, bought a ton of salt-water taffies, photographed the bay and walked the beach, where we spotted some dolphins not too far away.
Sometimes we need a little break from the cares of life. And as young couple, we often need the time to clear our minds and regroup.
