I woke Jim up early on Monday, so he could watch the sun rise to greet him on his birthday. We had low cloud cover so didn't get to see that fire line just before the sun peeks above the horizon, but it was still beautiful. Besides, how often do you get a chance to see your birthday sun rise above the ocean?
It was kind of a bittersweet day, as we were looking forward to starting our adult vacation time, yet hated to see the others leave for home. The little ones especially wanted to stay and Abigail was afraid of missing out on celebrating and having cake with GeeGaw. We assured her that we would have cake once we were all home together.
My daughter and I took the kids sweatshirt and T-shirt shopping, got her car loaded and gas tank filled, then they dropped me off at the condo building and headed on their way, after taking a few silly pictures.
The remainder of the day was spent quietly watching the waves, napping and then going to Jim's favorite restaurant, JR's, for his birthday dinner. They have the best prime rib there, which Jim loves, but my favorite is the broiled lump crab cake - the best in the entire world! It melts in your mouth and is so crabby good!
Tuesday was quietly spent reading, blogging, wave and people watching, figuring out what else we'd like to do with the time we have left and just being together. We plan to spend a couple of days roaming the boardwalk, hitting another favorite eatery and I'd like to get to Sea Shell City over in Fenwick, DE. Other than that, no plans, no need for any.
Hope you're having an enjoyable week! Hugs, Leena
