Since we scored a very nice condo for a steal for four days, this poor, (and I do mean poor!) struggling author was able to afford a nice little long weekend getaway in Ocean City, MD. I cannot remember exactly how many times I’ve been to this place but we’re talking about ME and the OCEAN so does it even matter?
Here are some highlights:
This is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge that connects the Eastern Shore of Maryland to the Western Shore where I live. Unless you want to drive 100 miles out of your way, there is no way to avoid this bridge. Get used to it. We all do.
Our cheap but swanky little pad for the weekend. Okay so not swanky but super cute, cozy and homey.
Ahhhh at last!
Sweet little lunch on the balcony prepared by men in swim trunks.
Sister in law from heaven…she knows all about vacations.
Very important supplies! Nothing but the best for us…lol It was so good too!
Yours truly ready to party!
Beautiful evening with friends on the Chesapeake Bay at Seacrets.
I SWEAR there was food too and I highly recommend the smoked tuna…to die for!
Ready for the beach baby! Sorry, no full length mirror so the balcony door had to do.
Breakfast! Poached eggs with sauteed spinach, fresh tomatoes and avacados at a new favorite place, Barn 34! A bit pricey but the food was excellent!
Breakfast was also provided by room service…aka my brother in law Bill. Even better because it was included in the price of our room and we didn’t have to dress up and go out to eat it! Pancakes, western omelets and country fried potatoes!
Spectacular sunsets every night…those are free.
Here I am again, ready for a fun evening! Tonight, all you can eat steamed crabs at the Crab Bag! They had to roll me out of there!
The view from our balcony at about 6:45am on May 30th.
Same view an our later. Hello Atlantic Ocean my love!
Yeah…this place. The oldest bar in Ocean City, MD. Mainly locals only. Most pro basketball players cannot come here unless they sit down the entire time. It was a blast and the beers were cheap!
Directly across the street from the Harbor Inn.
All wonderful things must come to an end. Hello Maryland traffic. Back to the real world. 😦
