Just haven't been present blogging because Bill and I got away for another Cape May vacation for our 36th anniversary! So, my apologies in advance for this LONG post (art is towards the end).It was a perfect 5 days of pure sunshine, and it was like a week in July temperature wise:). We got lots of walking in on the beach and in town, met up with friends, got some pool time in, and met a great couple at the pool at the same time two afternoons who told us about their favorite restaurant which we'd never been to so we checked it out and made a reservation (it was practically next to our motel!). So I will join Bleubeard and Elizabeth and the gang at T Stands For Tuesday with these next few pics:
Look at this stunning piece of furniture!! First thing we noticed when we walked into the Union Park dining room/hotel entrance. It is huge and takes up most of one wall though it looks small in this photo. Union Park restaurant is on the first floor and Hotel Macomber rooms above.
We both had Caesar salads. It was beautifully presented and both agreed this is truly THE freshest and best we have had anywhere.
We also both had the salmon special which was done to perfection, along with quinoa. It was topped with crabmeat and a bit of a tomato confit. On the side, a swipe of avocado cream. OMG!!! How could we have missed out on this place all these years? You can bet that next time we go this will be the first place we make a reservation for. Next post I'll share some of our other favorite places;)
We weren't home long and this past weekend brought us to the 32nd annual Celtic Classic weekend so of course we got immersed in Celtic music!!!
Love the Parade of the Tartans, and fortunately at least during the parade it was overcast because the rest of the day and Sunday became hot, hot , hot!
Hopefully the videos I share will work:)
After the parade we listened to a band for a bit and walked around but very briefly as everywhere it was PACKED with SO many people it was difficult to move. So we walked back home and then gave it another try on Sunday -much, much better!
We went to see the band Searson and met our friends Lynn and Andrew (along with their darling 4 month old little one, Warren) there. Here's a pic of father and son dressed the part for the weekend:
Difficult to get a good photo under the tent:(
One more short video- of Searson- awesome music:
And now, if you're still here-thank you!- a bit of art:
This tag is meant for Tag Tuesday (theme is Trees); and Moo Mania and More(theme is Autumn Glory). Background is a napkin. Tree image is from Magenta and I dotted the branches with various colors of glitter glue.
And one final journal page for this month's Art Journal Journey theme (Polka Dots, Stripes, Plaids or Patterns), and Paint Party Friday:
Done in my Dylusions Creative Dyary journal. Stencils used: Brick Wall (Wendy Vecchi), and Bulles (Carabelle Studio). Various Distress inks, image is from Retro Café Art. Words computer generated.
Thanks so much for your visit. Looking forward to catching up with you all again:)
