what a blast we had in Ocean City Maryland! The weather was perfect. it rained only at night two times, and the rest of the time is was just gorgeous. Well, except for one day when it was 106.. 110 on the beach. That was a perfect shopping day! There is a country house store down there! YOu probably know the catalog.. well the store is 100 times better! spent a few cents in there for sure!
We mostly relaxed there. We rented a little dorm style place in the old royalton hotel. that was a bit interesting. When we got there we were pretty disappointed. It wasnt nearly as nice as the condo we stayed in last time. However, the balcony faced the ocean and you couldnt beat that perfect view! We were right on the boardwalk and right next to the brass balls saloon, where we spent our lunches and a couple dinners! GReat drinks there!!
You can see the place we stayed in directly behind us in this picture above, its the place in the middle of the other two buildings, the one with the umbrellas in front is the brass balls saloon. We were the second floor balcony.. pretty nifty huh? The only thing is that it was senior week.. as in senior high school. And there were a lot of kids staying in our building. They all loved us though and visited us quite often through out the week. they were however mostly there to get drunk.. and that they did! We had a theme song for them, "teenage wasteland!" by the who! We enjoyed the kids to be honest. They were well behaved, even though they were drinking. we actually exchanged names so we could be friends on face book!! A few have already friend requested me! lol!
WE ate well.. and drank lots of fun frothy frozen drinks! mudslides and creamsicles! See the little flamingos? these are what I used to make those pinkeeps that I showed you a few posts ago! I still had a few left from 2 years ago when we went. I have a brand new supply of them now! like about 30 of them!! LOL!! no I didnt drink all 30 of those drinks though! I do have to honestly admit that I gained 5 pounds while I was gone. SO it was back to serious business today.
There is just something so relaxing about sitting on the ocean for 6 whole days. We spent our days on the beach and our evenings out shopping the boardwalk and eating! And then we had drinks and played games in our apartment at night and sat on the balcony! We slept well too.. sitting out all day makes you exhausted!
These two pics are views from out balcony. We saw dozens of dolphins everyday, though I got no pics. And one day the life guard told us that there were three whales!! But we didnt see them.
This is how I started everymorning! and on four mornings I went by myself and rented bicycles to ride the 2 and a half mile boardwalk back and forth. what a great ride! enjoying the ocean the whole time!
I had two other special treats while we were there. The first night there, I got to meet Roxie! my partner in Jenny heids vintage vacation swap! What a blast she is. I wish we could have had more time to hang out. She is a doll. And on Saturday one of my favorite cousins drove out to hang out on the beach with us. I was so glad to see her.
Speaking of Roxie, I have to hustle now and get her gifties for the swap finished up and mailed out!! I took over 200 pictures, but its soo difficult to pic just a few out. There are sooo many great ones to chose from.
The ride home was long.. 10 hours and I was tired and a little cranky until I got here and saw my babies! I missed them so much while I was gone! And they grew so much. They are 3 weeks old tomorrow. Look at How FREAKEN adorable they are!!
I think that they are all going to have longer hair like thier mother! The last litter was like their father.
OK.. I will never ever totally catch up with everyone, but will be stopping in to see everyone and to say Hi over the next few days! I hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer!
see yous all soon!!
