Aw, you did a fine job telling the story even if you didn't have as many pictures as you'd hoped. And it sounds like it was a very relaxing vacation...that's the goal, right?

Judy has been making quinoa lately. It's kind of like couscous, not bad.

Funny that you said 'stall' after a bathroom picture.

I really enjoyed your vacation! It would have been better if I went along, oh well.

Where did you get that cute dress? It appears to be a Disney dress, am I right?

Looks like you snuck a couple of updates in on me when I wasn't looking!

I'm very glad the trip wasn't actually horrible, and that you had that whole DVC Zen thing going.

But I know that last walk out the door is still hard. Someday we'll figure out how to keep it from ending.

Nice update on your horrible trip report, Pat.

We were not pleased with our breakfast at Cape May at all last month...not enough choices, the food wasn't all hot, etc. What was with the woman with the heals in that picture? Wow.

So glad to see you got a parting bathroom shot. Although maybe there is yet one more to come??????

Ok, I'll take a trip as "horrible" as yours! Even half as horrible.

And remember, it is not the quantity of pictures you have, it's the quality and you have some darned great ones!!!

We enjoyed the Cape May breakfast. Love the colorful beachy attire worn by the characters. But it was so much fun when Chip and Dale were there!

I'm so glad you loved your Beach Club home!

Those are just like my walking shoes in Disney. Zebra high heals. Stylish and oh so comfy! NOT! I couldn't even stand, let alone walk!

I like crispy bacon too.

Awww that's a great reason for the title! You relaxed Your report was great, not slack on details at all!
Looks like a really great breakfast. I didn't know they had a character breakfast (in beach wear!) at Cape May! Cool!

Quote:
Some of the food on my first plate. Cant go wrong with bacon but I struggle to find some as .... well done ( burnt ) as I like it.
I also like my bacon burnt. I rarely eat bacon that I didn't cook myself because it's always underdone for me!

I can relate to the "I have DVC and I can come back when I want" feeling. It's a great feeling and it does make you approach the whole trip in a different manner. I swear I only take as many pictures as I do so I can write a decent TR.

I loved your trip. I didn't realize this was your first trip home to the BC. Very nice!

LOVE your TR Pat! Wonder what's left? A stop for a special souvenir or gift?

I agree with Mary Ellen - I take more pictures now to share on TRs!! Especially food, it helps me remember what we ate so I can recommend things to others.
Although I think MEK is not totally truthful - this is the woman who takes 200 pictures of a castle in one sitting. I think she loves photography too much to not take them, even if there's not a TR waiting in the wings!!

We ate breakfast at Cape May in July 2010, and thought it was okay. Nothing too special either. I'd like to try dinner there - I hear they have a lot of seafood. I could go for that!

It was a great trip. I knew with the heat I would have to take a break but I actually looked forward to the breaks and generally just taking it slow.

Well thanks. I know I had some great meals but by now I have no idea what I had and of course have no pictures to help me remember.

I have been a little scared of the quinoa. Maybe I should give it a try.
Usually anything suppoed to be good for you .....I end being allergic to.

CP needs to go back on my list for a meal soon.
Maybe that was Roy having a "ball"

That is a Disney dress. Found it in the American adventure. Very comfy.

This is moving so slowly, I figure some people might have just forgotten about it.
The DVC zen hit me hard. The first DVC trip was more hectic with a resort change and the allergic reaction and crowds not to mention being at two resort for the first time, so this was like coming home.

I was very lucky this fall and winter I walked out and back in almost every month.

Thanks and Cape May for me was nice and I don't remember anything being wrong like cold food and the service was good, it just didn't stand out for me this trip.
My standout meal actually came from the Captain's grille that trip. Really great chef that was able to deal easily with my allergies and still get me what I wanted.

Those heels really caught my attention!

A little bit more - and maybe one more bathroom....

I would love another "horrible" trip like that. I can fix the horrible .... or can at least plan to.

Thanks for the compliment. I feel that I am used to my camera now and have learned how to use it somewhat.

Cape May was good character interaction, and from what I remember it was good just nothing outstanding.

Chip and Dale usually put on show. Too bad they are not still there.

I could not imagine wearing those shoes. My feet hurt even in sneakers after a few days.

Crispy bacon ... can't be too burnt for me.

Thanks for the compliment. I just felt there were so many times that I just did not take ANY pictures that it might be hard to fill in the gaps.

Cape May breakfast is Minnie, Donald and Goofy in their beachwear. It was a fun breakfast. Just never made it to the must do list for every trip.

Burnt bacon - that's how I like it too.

I have a great zoom lens remember?

I do use my camera and the time stamp for a lot of reasons, and mostly for the trip report. This time lots of gaps, no pictures of all the components of the whole meal. Yeesh I would remember way too late. Nobody wants a picture of an empty plate.

This was the first time at BCV. I had stayed at BC before, and had a DVC stay before but not a BCV DVC stay.

Thanks. Yup more more spot before I head north. Something at the time new and not seen up close yet.

I have usually taken more pictures as time stamps or meals and "virtual shopping". Helps me remember and I dont have to rely heavily on the notes I usually dont take.

Having watched MEK in action I understand. I take many shots of the same thing to just to get that perfect shot. You can only see so much in the tiny viewfinder and well since it digital no additional cost for additional shots.

It also passes the time when waiting.

What a terrible, horrible trip! And you've done a fine job of reporting on it! No worries, we've all seen all the sites, it's fun to see some of the smaller details
that you've captured.

I really like those heels! They are fun! But at Disney?! Ouch!
