I really didn’t want to leave. Really, really, really didn’t want to leave.
The Beach Club was so homey, so Downton Abbey in the awesome staff, and with the pool and the fireworks and the food…it was truly a great place. Every day the flowers were replaced in the lobby, which always smelled of orchids. I loved the solarium, the cheerful lifeguards who talked to every kid in their section, the awesome families, and the beautiful architecture.
I loved Flounder and Sebastian on my rug!
But, sadly, we had to leave. But not without some last minute pin trading and Beaches and Cream.
(And I grabbed a few more Mickey Rice Krispy treats for the road. I ate the last one earlier this week. SO GOOD.)
Cape May Cafe put up a pin trading board every day after they closed post-breakfast. There was a two pin limit (meaning you could trade two of your pins for two on the board, at a maximum. You didn’t have to trade two, if there weren’t two pins you wanted.) (And yes, I’m posting more on pin trading later!). So I had to get in one last trading session, and got an Iago and Cinderella pin for my collection, swapping two Star Wars pins.
Then I met Dad at Beaches and Cream, for our farewell burgers and chocolate Cokes. It was the only time we ate there that we got a booth, so huzzah!
Dad hadn’t had the burger yet, so I told him he must have it before we left. In total, we had the hot dog, the falafel, the soup and grilled cheese, the burger, and the Turkey sandwich. And the Milky Way Sundae. Dad also enjoyed the Orange Dream a few times as his beverage of choice (I loved the little candied orange pieces on the whipped cream topping.) We finished our meal with two scoops of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. So we did a pretty good job on the menu front.
After the meal we took some last photos of the pool, hotel, and solarium.
And then, it was time to head north. 😦
Dad had filled up the car at the local Hess station, so we were ready to go. He brought the car around to the front and we were heading to Atlanta.
Au revoir, Beach Club!
