Hello, I came across your blog accidentally. These homes and gardens are just absolutely adorable. Greetings from Germany, Andrea

Karen S

Love your Cape May photos! I too spent every childhood summer at the Jersey shore - we stayed in Wildwood Drest but always visited Cape May. I love Cape May. Your pictures are beautiful.


I enjoyed this tour of outstanding homes. Thanks.


Thanks for taking the Cape May tour -- I'm glad you all enjoyed it! Cape May is one of my favorite places. These photos are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the beautiful architcture and gardens there.
