A week ago……Last Friday my friend Shannon drove up from the Carolina’s to visit. She brought Michele with her. They left Shannon’s only a little late and were pretty much on time. This is HUGE for Shannon. They got here after a slight scenic tour of the Harbor Tunnel and after a quick potty break we hit the road yet again for a 3 hour drive to Ocean City. Ocean City is one of my favorite places and I was so excited to share it with my friends. We had a great time in the car talking and singing and catching up. It was great. I was sure to point out to Shannon that we do have farms in here in Maryland. Shannon was under the impression that we were all concrete here in Maryland. LOL She is still not 100% convinced that we have mountains. LOL Maybe a trip to Deep Creek is needed for her.
We got to Ocean City around 9:30pm and we headed right to Harborside Bar and Grill. We got carded on the way in….Now for three 30 – somethings this is a big deal.
We got seats right away and of course we all got Orange Crushes. YUM! Michele got steamed shrimp and fell in love with Old Bay Seasoning. Shannon and I split my favorite Parmesan Fish. We were all feeling tipsy after one drink….We are such lightweights! We headed to the condo to unpack and unwind! I was asleep in no time!
We woke up early….I am always an early riser. After dragging Shannon out of bed kicking and screaming (nah, just kidding) we all got dressed and headed to the bagel shop for some breakfast.
I snapped this picture of the girls before we left to head to Assateague Island to visit the horses. Pete and I are season pass holders so we were able to skip the LONG line of people paying to get into the park. We seen some horses very fast! There are always tons when ever I go.
We headed to the Old Ferry Launch….That is my favorite “street” in Assateague Island. Shannon and Michele loved the area too.
We took tons of pictures. I am sharing just a fraction of them!
After exploring the Island we headed up tp the Boardwalk. We got some Chocolate Strawberries and rode the tram.
We rode up and down the boardwalk and chatted. It was a nice way to see it all.
After our tram ride we ran into the cutest girl ever! Miss Ryleah was at the Boardwalk and we hd to get some pictures of her!
Since we were starving I thought I would take Shannon to Booty’s. She loves pirates so what better place to have lunch!
Shannon’s Knee was hurting so we went back to the Condo for a rest. She crashed out right away!
After our rest we headed to Bath and Body Works and Bed Bath and Beyond. Then we rushed to my Mom’s memerial tree to watch the Sunset.
It was a great Sunset. Funny Story…..When we got there we asked a guy to take the above picture of the three of us. Then he asked Shannon to take a picture of ME and him. I went along with it…LOL Oh well. It was fun. I feel so close to y Mom when I watch the Sunset from her tree! Look how Big it has gotten. The first picture was from the dedication and the 2nd taken last weekend.
After the sun was set we headed to Castle in the Sand for a light dinner and some yummy drinks. We hung out there and had a great waiter. We were kinda cold, but not too cold for some Ice Cream. We went to Dumsers for desert for the girls. We got home around midnight and fell fast asleep!
I will continue!
Up next………….The Beach, the Boardwalk & Dinner!
