Next time you are in Cape May try the Ebbit Room in the Virginia Hotel, upscale 5 star..ranks among the very best I have ever been in. 410 Bank is a great fusion restaurant which sends its staff for two weeks to the country they will do the cuisine of the following season as is a great place...especially the proch. The Mad Batter for breakfast andi ts banana, peach and NJ blueberry stuffed french toast.

I always spend a weekend in December toward New Years in Cape May. We drive there 3 hours)...stay in a bread and breakfast on Saturday evening and do the Christmas tours of the Victorian houses.

Maybe we will meet there.

My father is a water color artist, has been doing paintings of local scenes for years, and thus we took family vacations there probably 40 years in a row. I figure I've spent nearly 2 years there, yet I never tired the Ebbit Room, not that I could afford it as regular fare. The Mad Batter is a very good call. I always like Zoe's on the beachfront for a sandwich lunch.

I tried to go on one of the horse and carriage rides with my wife and daughter during one of our winter visits; I'm allergic to horses and the blanket we were given was somewhat steeped in horse. My eye started to water something fearsome and I had to walk back... which was fine, really. It was a good time and a good story.

I wa surprised about the Cape Charles bashing. We stayed at Bay Creek Marina. Riding bikes with my son on the floating docks helping incoming boats dock on a holiday weekend willl always be a great bonding memory between me and my son. Dinner at Aqua has to be one of the top five lifetime.

Just a note on Utsch's Marina in Cape May. I have a PDQ36, and the last 2 times I was there they put me in a slip with floating docks. NO extra charge for a catamaran. Two dockhands met me each time and took my lines, then left before I had a chance to tip them. Best Marina in Cape May IMO.

The last time I was at Utsch's in 2005 no one stopped me from backing in. I've never ever had a marina say I can't, although most assume I will. On Auspicious I have issues reaching shore power in most places bow in, and unless there are full-length fingers I have to empty out the cockpit locker to reach my bow ladder.

I had a good experience with Utsch's when I was there, but I wouldn't choose to go to a marina that won't let me back in.

I have, generally because the water was shallow at the bulkhead. That may have been the case.
