WELCOME TO OCEAN CITY. MARYLAND!
Jim and I recently returned from a well deserved and much needed week at our favorite vacation spot, Ocean City, Maryland. Normally, I would have posted a little blurb with each day's activities, but the Wifi connection in the hotel was so sketchy, I couldn't stay signed on long enough to do much of anything! Speaking of our hotel, I'll get the whining out of the way first. We'd reserved an ocean front room with one king-sized bed, a sitting area and full kitchen. What we got was an ocean view room on the side of the building with a mini kitchen and couch shoved in one corner and two king-sized beds. Upon pulling back the drapes we discovered that our "ocean view" wasn't exactly what we had in mind. It was this:
Yes that's right, Hooters! Not even a good one either! We ate lunch there last year and it was horrible! If we sat sideways, we could see a little bit of the ocean but the building air conditioner units were so loud that we rarely got to hear the waves. At least we could see the kites from The Kite Loft dancing in the breeze so we decided to make the best of it.
The weather was gorgeous most of the week, with the exception of a mini hurricane that blew through. I must admit that I'm a bit of an adventurous, aka stupid, person when it comes to these big storms. I love watching the rain falling sideways and the waves up over 8 feet. I found a little corner on the balcony where, if I huddled close to the wall, I could watch it all and not get wet! I was able to take a few pictures prior to the storm hitting but once the sustained 50mph winds hit, photography was not possible. Jim was shocked to find me out there at 4am, but I was enjoying watching the storm, listening to the power of the wind and waves and thinking. It was actually quite relaxing! Fortunately, the rain had stopped by morning and we were able to venture outside.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day! Hugs, Leena
