In my last post, I mentioned that we were at Ocean City MD during the week of Jim's birthday. I really enjoy spending his special day at his favorite place as it makes him so happy! If he were home, he would normally go to work then maybe we'd go out for dinner that evening; not very exciting. Such an awesome guy deserves an awesome celebration!
You may also recall that I was bummed that our reservation for an ocean front room had been changed to an ocean view room. I had plans to decorate the balcony, which faced one of the busiest sections of the boardwalk, with balloons, streamers, a Happy Birthday banner and a large sign asking people to yell or sing Happy Birthday to Jim as they walked by. He would have gotten the biggest laugh from that! I'll try that idea again next year.
We rode our scooters to the boardwalk and I turned him lose! I told him he could go anywhere he wanted to. It turned out to be a day of boardwalk epicurean delights! He got shaved ice from the Alaska Stand, lemonade from Love's, a sausage sandwich for lunch from Polack Johnny's - he was a happy camper! Fried Oreos seemed to be this year's hot item, but we declined. We took pictures from the pier and of the dunes until an evening shower came in, then we headed back to our hotel.
Dinner was enjoyed at JR's, a favorite place for steak and crab cakes. We always make sure to get to JR's. Their steaks melt in your mouth and their lump crab cakes are Heavenly! Add fresh, warm honey wheat bread, a refreshing salad and locally grown vegetables and it's pure dining pleasure! We took two pieces of chocolate cake home, which was later enjoyed on the balcony underneath the stars.
Overall, it was a very pleasant day for us both.
Thank you for dropping by - I always love your visits and comments! Have a great week!
