Jay and I decided to go to Ocean City, MD. It is about a 3 hour drive from here and it was time for Jay to have a little time off. He has been working so hard and has spent so much time taking care of me these last six months. He just needed to get away from the city and spend some time doing nothing. Ocean City is very much a touristy place in the summertime - but during the winter, it is pretty well deserted and quiet. It was so nice.
I loved how the sand dunes looked. Standing there listening to the ocean and looking at the beauty - well, I could spend all day doing that!
This one area that we went to had wild horses. Do you remember reading the book Chincotee Island when you were little? About the Chincotee horses? Well this was very close to that place and there were horses just wandering around doing their own thing. You were supposed to stay away from them, but they appeared pretty tame.
I love how the sand looks here.
This was the boardwalk (like in Monopoly). There were lots of little stores and vendors along here. About 75% of the places were closed because of the season - but it was a nice walk and it was fun to browse the shops that were open.
This is a picture of our Condo. Now when I think of condo, I have a much different idea. This was more like a motel - but it was nice and clean. One of the men in Jay's small group owns this condo and let us stay there - which made it even nicer.
This was the area that we walked to the beach. I love the boardwalks - it just felt "cool" walking on them.
You can see how deserted the beaches were. We literally were the only ones there. If you look really hard, you can see me WAY down the beach just walking along.
Did I mention that it was cold? Yep - it was cold. But so nice to get away and enjoy some time out of the city. The ocean was beautiful!
