“The Way to Cape May”
You are cordially invited to Cape May, New Jersey to attend the seaside wedding of Delaney Ross and Dalton Brooks. When seven-year-old Dalton knocked over Delaney’s sandcastle that one fateful day, nobody could have guessed they’d get engaged on that same beach twenty years later. What started out as rivals soon became a friendship that blossomed into an attraction. But aside from a brief fling one teenage summer, the two were never both available at the same time. Until destiny stepped in to arrange a chance meeting in an unlikely setting, followed by Dalton’s romantic surprise proposal. Now, as they prepare to march down the aisle, there’s no question in anyone’s mind these childhood sweethearts are destined to spend their lives together. Or are they?
A series of unfortunate events threaten to crash the party, including an unwelcome RSVP from Mother Nature. But even she won’t take the cake once Groomzilla emerges with a potentially life-altering secret that may detour this fairy tale wedding to a Happily Never After.
In the meantime, eight unsuspecting guests on their way to the wedding are taken on a detour of their own. Each encounters a dilemma which causes them to reconsider their own choices in love, life and career. The Way to Cape May is not just a weekend trip down the shore to celebrate love of one couple, but a journey of self-discovery for all.
So what are you waiting for? Save The Date so you can secure a front row seat to all the action. Grab a cocktail and get ready for the Chicken Dance. You never know what the night – and destiny – may have in store.
“Shoobie’s Guide to Goin’ Down the Shore”
In the late 1800’s, the Southern Jersey coast became a popular travel destination for residents of Philadelphia and beyond, many of whom came by train. “Shoobie” was a nickname given to those travelers who came for the day. They would pack their lunches in shoeboxes to save on the cost of their trip, thereby depriving local businesses of tourist revenue. Today, the derogatory nickname remains – not so much to chastise people for not spending money, but to distinguish locals and long-term vacationers from temporary day or weekend guests.
Today, the Southern Jersey coast remains a highly traveled destination spot. There is much to know when planning a trip here, including where to stay, where to eat, what to do and more. This helpful guide provides Shoobies with all the information they need to know for a perfect trip to the beach, even if they choose to pack their own lunches.
In the meantime, if you wish to learn more about the South Jersey coast, including history, things to do, where to stay, play and eat, check out my website, The Shore Blog.
