Ocean City - Some Final Thoughts

Ah, the beach.  As you can probably tell from the photo above, I'm not crazy about the beach.  I know, I know...everyone is supposed to LOVE the beach.  But it just isn't my thing.  I can't help it.  Give me a nice cool mountain.  Of course, I certainly WISH I loved the beach.  Then, everyone would not think I was so weird.  But I am 43 years old (for a few more days, anyway), and I don't think I'm going to change my mind.  I will never enjoy the hot hot sun, the cold cold saltwater, and having sand everywhere. 

What I DO enjoy, however, is watching how much fun Daphne has at the beach.  And I enjoyed it briefly from my nice comfy chair inside our awesome shady beach tent.  It was quite nice inside the tent, actually, like VIRTUAL beach.

In spite of not being a beachy person, I did enjoy our vacation very much.  It is not often that I can get up and watch the sun come up over the ocean while riding my bike with Kev six mornings in a row.  No sun, no sand, no saltwater.  Just peace and quiet.  And that is my idea of a vacation.  Serenity now!

Plus there was ice cream every single day.

So, thanks to Mimi and Papa for the great vacation.  It was so great to get to spend time with everyone.  I loved seeing the kids play together, and I look forward to next time we all get together.  I will be practicing my Rock Band guitar moves in the meantime. 

Next stop, Girl Scout Camp.  Lord help me.

I can never fill in those "beach, or mountain?" personality surveys correctly. I'd waaay prefer to stay home and whip the back yard into shape. :)

Glad you (you-all) had a good time.
