Beach Getaway

Being the bad moms that we are, we very seriously considered a 3 day Vegas getaway before Nerdstar starts her new job on Monday. There are some really good places to eat in Vegas that we've never tried. Not to mention poker rooms and craps tables. Although gambling one at a time wouldn't be AS fun. Heh. The deciding factor was that we didn't want to subject him to airplane germs yet.

So, we decided to hit the road to Ocean City, about 3 1/2 hours away and go listen to the waves roll in. We had no idea what all was there, or where we'd stay. We found a great Holiday Inn and gave little Noah his own bed and he did great!

It was really windy this morning, but we went down to the water for a few.

This was our view about 5 pm yesterday when we got checked in.

This was about 8 am this morning before we headed out to breakfast and the beach.

We've been to Atlantic City, Virginia Beach and now Ocean City on the East Coast. If we never go back to Atlantic City, that's fine with us. And I think we decided we'd rather rent a little place on the beach at Virginia Beach than go back to Ocean City.

If it's ever up to me, I love going to Monterrey, CA and sitting and watching the sea lions on the rocks. If it's ever up to Nerdstar, we're going to Hawaii. She's been, but I haven't.

Did you go to OC Maryland or New Jersey? Maryland is sooooo "Senior Week", but my family always vacationed there when I was a child. We went to OC New Jersey two years ago and loved it. It was very homey and charming. I'm glad you had a nice time, even with the chilly weather. :)

We went to Maryland. It was not only old people week, it was Bike Week. And while I ride, I've never been a big fan of harleys or harley riders.

We should have sat on the balcony more, but it was a nice, quick trip.
