10 on Tuesday: Cape May Edition

The suggested topic for today’s 10 on Tuesday post – favorite romantic comedies – didn’t really grab me (not a big fan of the romcom overall) so instead, I thought I’d share 10 things that I’ve enjoyed on my vacation here in Cape May.

1. Hanging with friends. I know, obvious choice, but of course, the people you’re with always make or break a trip.

2. Swimming. Given how hot it has been, the ocean is still remarkably cold, and immensely refreshing after spending some time in the sun.

3. Chilling in the hammock. I looove hammocks and have spent more time in the one here than practically anywhere else.

4. Reading. I finally had time to finish “A Game of Thrones” on this trip, and – rather than being my normally-compulsive self and jumping into the second book in the series – I actually started reading something else instead.

5. Drinking wine. Specifically, this Portuguese wine that Julia loves called vinho verde. It’s a light, slightly fizzy white wine with a low amount of alcohol, which makes it perfect for hot summer days.

6. Relaxing on the beach. Duh, of course. And I even managed not to get too sunburned. (Beach umbrellas FTW!)

7. Riding my bike. As I mentioned yesterday, I really enjoyed my ride up to the Cape May lighthouse.

8. Napping. It’s not a vacation if you don’t get to sleep whenever you feel like it – even in the middle of the afternoon.

9. Eating. We’ve been eating like it’s our job, and as a bonus, I’ve picked up a few really tasty pasta salad tips from Jordi.

10. Having wifi in the house. I know “unplugging” on vacation makes some people happy, but not me. It makes me anxious to be out of touch, so I am happy to have fast Internet access here.

    Sounds like a *perfect* vacation!! Your photos are fabulous. Could I have a full-sized one of today’s lighthouse with dunes for my collection? Even a brief viewing on the slideshow now & then makes me long for the beach and raises my spirit at the same time ;).

    Don’t let today’s jerk happening ruin your vacay aura. I share your frustration as someone did that under my chair at Mall of America and seeing as my Merrill’s were too new to ditch, I had to spend the entire afternoon in the mall “step, stick, step, stick….”. Goo Off worked when I got back to Loon’s. Don’t know if that works on fabric, however, as you might be trading sticky for oily. Hmmmmm. So sorry.
