My boyfriend's birthday was a week ago. To celebrate we took a trip to Cape May, NJ, a quaint beach town. It was both our first times to Cape May and we loved it. We stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast one block away from the Atlantic Ocean. It was nice to get away.
I haven't been blogging much because I was hospitalized for a manic episode for two weeks in March. And now I'm in an intensive outpatient program (IOP) three days per week. I just finished my third week, I still have three more weeks to go. Don't worry. I have plenty to blog about. And over the next two months I will be writing about my experiences with this manic episode (my fourth); my 13-day hospitalization; IOP; and my normal, non-bipolar life.
Hence, why the weekend getaway down the shore ("down the shore" is a Jersey saying) was so rejuvenating.
Here are some pictures of our weekend. We stayed this past Saturday to Monday.
The obligatory feet-in-the-sand shot.
Me and the ocean.
Had to take a selfie.
A beautiful capture of the sun and the shoreline.
Our bed & breakfast. A gorgeous Victorian home.
A town trolley. Unfortunately, we were unable to take a tour around town.
There's always next time!
Me and the town bell.
Even though it's spring time, we still have cold days here in NJ. I had to buy a sweatshirt
because I didn't pack a jacket. The sign I'm holding says: "Take vacations. Go as many places as you can. You can always make more money. You can't always make memories."
Indeed. I'm hoping to incorporate more travel into my self-care.
My favorite picture of the entire trip. We took a bus from Manhattan to Cape May.
This is us on the return trip home.
