Victorians in New Jersey

The town of Cape May is located at the very southern tip of the Jersey shore.

Cape May is at the southern tip of New Jersey.

It is quaint and quiet.

Hotel prices change with the seasons.

Many of the houses there including inns and B and Bs are classic Victorian structures.

Old houses in my neighborhood are brightly painted.

I live in a historic district in Maryland where many of the homes date from the 1880s and were built in the classic style.  One of the most distinctive qualities is the colorful painted finishes.

The beach is fine white sand.

Charlie and I enjoyed driving along Beach Avenue.  We parked and got out at the beach.  We took a short stroll on a very windy day.

After visiting Cape May we plan to come back for a longer stay.

Do you have a favorite vacation spot?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
