Cape May is the home to beautiful Victorian homes, a lighthouse beacon, pristine beaches and enough stimulation for all those who “shop till they drop”! I previously did a post on the vintage archetecture but in this post, I wanted to try to capture and convey the mood which emanates from this summer beach town.

Cape May, NJ is known for its unique and photographic architecture. Styles range from Gothic, Shingle, Queen Ann and Italianate.
Gingerbread trimmed porches, decorative cornices and vintage gardens all welcome visitors. I had a wonderful afternoon just focusing on the colors and unique designs!
Hopefully this weekend, in the stillness of mind and heart, we experience a deep sense of gratitude for all those who honored a profound calling to serve and protect others. The Cape May firehouse has a special exhibit taking visitors back in time in order to remember firefighters and their selfless sacrifices.
The architecture in Cape May, NJ is so diverse. Yesterday, I posted a picture of an historic church while right around the corner, another religious gathering spot welcomes followers with a totally different architectural style.
