Wrapping Up New Jersey

sunny 85 °F

While out driving around looking for a pizza place (which I never found, btw!) one evening, I saw a couple of signs for Mt. Tabor and wondered what it was. I looked it up when I got home for the evening. Mt. Tabor began in the 1860's as the site of a Methodist camp. They had camp meetings there and originally, people had spots to put up tents to live in while they were there. The lots for the houses that were eventually built there are small because they were meant for tents. Musta been big tents, but for houses, things are very tight! It is very scenic though and I really enjoyed driving through the area. One thing that interested me was that these homes can be occupied year round. That is not the case at The Bay View Association in my home state of Michigan. Those homes can only be occupied six months a year.

I really liked the look of the place, it seemed very peaceful to me, but you would have to really like people considering how you are pretty much living on top of your neighbors here! Here are some photos I took while driving through Mt Tabor.

I like bakeries and for my birthday, I decided to stop at one that was highly rated and pick up a small cake for myself. That bakery is Natale's and I tell ya, this place is bakery heaven, this is the bakery of every child's dreams. It was really crowded, and I understand why. The variety and the quality was amazing. I didn't get a picture of my little cake, but I did get pictures of what they call a flying saucer, but that I have always known as an elephant ear, or a cinnamon crisp. It was probably the best that I have ever had., I also got something that I think is called a lobster tail in some bakeries, but when I asked what it was, I was told an Italian name which I forgot immediately!


I had a couple of days off between assignments, so I decided to go down the coast. I knew I wanted to check out Cape May, but someone also suggested Wildwood. Wildwood was awful! I would recommend it to you only if you like a lot of cement with your sand. It was chock a block ugly motels and more cement than should be allowed in a beach town. Ugh!

My computer had crashed on me and I didn't have time to do enough research to find a motel in Cape May, so although I drove through it, I didn't stop or stay. It is much more quaint and beachy than Wildwood thank heavens. I wouldn't mind going back once I have time to find out what I should see and do.

I took the Cape May -Lewes Car Ferry over to Lewes, which I have written about before on this blog. I stayed at a motel in Rehobeth Beach and just did some mindless driving around, which I enjoyed a lot and took a short trolley tour of Lewes. I have never been one for group tours, but I have found that this type of tour gives you a good quick over-view of an area so you can decide what you want to explore further once you are done.
