On the recommendation of a friend, we found Seal Cove Inn, which was a charming Bed and Breakfast just outside the city (30 minutes from downtown) on the ocean. The B&B had a yummy appetizer hour before dinner, and a delicious, homemade breakfast every morning. We were able to use their bikes to ride around during the day and they had fresh logs every night in our fire place. Coffee was delivered every morning to our room and there were often batches of fresh baked cookies down in the lobby. The Inn is right near a reserve, so there was a lot of wildlife sounds every morning and evening. Other then that, it was very quiet and peaceful.
Seal Cove Inn was named for the small cove right by the inn that is home to large groups of seals. They come ashore to nurse their young and I'm sure to bask in the sun. It was really fun to watch them.
Sunday night, we ate dinner at Pasta Moon. Homemade pasta is their specialty. Mark had the Eggplant Parm and I had butternut squash and Mascarpone ravioli. So delicious.
After dinner, we went back to our hotel and walked to see the ocean.
Cypress Grove was located right near the inn. We walked along the trail that led to the bluffs that overlook the ocean. It was amazingly, breathtakingly gorgeous!
I felt like we were in Ireland or somewhere European.
Each night, we went out to watch the sunset.
The beauty was breathtaking!
