We went to Ocean City, the day after the 4th of July . We did not anticipate the big crowd that is going to Ocean City on that weekend. Oh it was a pain because we were just inching along and it did not help that I had to go to the bathroom so bad. The kids were getting agitated as we were stuff in a heavy traffic for over two hours.
I told my husband, never again we will come here the day after the 4th of July or weekend for that matter. We finally broke through the traffic and saw the welcome sign.
Even in the city, the traffic was so congested. I betcha if it wasn't for the kids in the van, my husband would have said sweet words already because of frustration lol.
After reaching the hotel we stayed at, our children could not wait to go in the beach and enjoy the sand.
My husband was ten years old when he first saw Ocean City and he was in his teens during his last visit. He said that 30 years later did a lot of change to this place. Smelling the ocean air reminds me of my hometown in the Philippines, it made me miss my family but glad to see the smiles in our children's faces.
Welcome signs are always welcome! ;)ReplyDelete
Ocean City gets lots of visitors from Baltimore and DC, so is a quite bust place most of the summer. However when you got there and parked the car, it looks to be a wonderful beach and with lots of hotels, you can park for awhile and drive nowhere. Which is how a relaxing vacation needs to be...ReplyDelete
The ocean does have a way with our hearts and our souls.ReplyDelete
I love beach photos - it reminds me of the warm sand on the toes and slight breeze from the ocean.ReplyDelete
That's a very nice weekend getaway. At least, the family had fun even if you got stuck in a traffic. What matters most was the fact that the kids enjoyed.ReplyDelete
Kids do love to be at the beach, no matter the driving/traffic it takes to get there. Mine are like that too. The pictures are really nice!ReplyDelete
At least the beach was enough to make you all forget about your frustrations of being stuck in traffic for so long. And it looks like you guys had a great time!ReplyDelete
