Day 2782 – So What Did We Do On Our Adventure Weekend? – Trip To Ocean City Maryland

Oh my goodness, what an amazing weekend! I will share a post in the next few days about my thoughts on travel and why people can’t afford to travel. I’m realizing more and more that I’m extremely passionate about this.

As I mentioned, this past Thursday was the ten year anniversary of meeting Bret. I told him in the weeks leading up to the day that this was an important day to me. He mentioned spending about $200 to celebrate…whether it was going away or just doing a bunch of fun things. Here’s how we ended up spending that (and some more).

On Friday, we signed the lease to our new home. Can’t wait to move! Our new landlords are super cool and we have had long conversations with them already.

While we were talking, my stomach made the loudest, craziest growl it has ever made. I seriously thought it was their dog at first. Ha! So, we grabbed dinner after.

I finally tried the Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa. So freakin good! Had a kick I wasn’t expecting but really enjoyed.

We always pass this kabob food truck and say we gotta try that some day! Well, Friday was someday. Also super delicious.

On Saturday, we decided to cash in some free movie tickets to see Lego Batman. Dude, it was SO funny. I highly recommend it!

After the movie, we wandered around in a Wholefoods. My first time. Holy cow do they have their presentation down! Good looking produce. And hilarious produce. How cute are these Pee Wee potatoes?

If you’ve followed our blog for a while, you know we love to drive to the beach (Ocean City, Maryland) in the middle of the night and watch the sunrise. We left a little later than we would’ve liked, but we still arrived in time for the sunrise. Boy howdy, we were NOT disappointed! With the clouds, it was a stunning sunrise.

The great thing about watching the sunrise in the winter is free parking at the inlet and not many people. Oh yea, we brought our chairs! Very comfy sunrise watching, for sure!

While we were watching, someone walked by and said their was a seal down the beach. We walked down and checked it out.

After the sun was up, our stomachs were growling for food. So off we walked down the boardwalk. Remember, this is February and a Sunday….soooooo, nothing was open! We walked all the way up to 7th street and cut down to find something! We finally found a cute little spot, Sorianos. It was so nice to find someplace open!

The food was amazing, and the sausage was some of the tastiest I’ve ever had. Nom. Nom. Nom.

After our bellies were full and our bladders were empty, we walked back to the beach with chairs, blankets, and books in tow. We spent hours reading and chatting. It was absolutely wonderful.

When we walked back to our car, we were surprised to see how many people had arrived. Thankfully, this meant there were some smart business owners who were open. I was craving some fries, but was discouraged to see the line for Thrasher’s. Dude, I would estimate at least 100-200 people in line. WAHHHHH? We did NOT wait in line, and kept walking. We were happy to find Polock Johnny’s and enjoyed cheese fries and fried Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So. Freakin. Good.

At this point, we started thinking about where to stay the night. We walked WAYYYYY up the boardwalk and back down the inlet, looking at hotels, looking at availability and figuring our the best place to stay. We drove up and down Coastal Highway, Bret searching while I pointed out places. We finally ended up at a Quality Inn within walking distance to Burger King, grabbed some dinner and settled in for a relaxing evening. We even jumped in the ocean! Oh man, it HURT, but we did it. Then we jumped in the indoor pool and spent some time in the sauna. Soooooo relaxing. The rest of the evening was spent reading and chatting.

We slept with the door open all night and enjoyed the sound of the waves. We even got to see the sunrise from our bed. It was a much shorter commute to watch the sunrise that morning!

It was such a great weekend. So very relaxing but it also put fuel to the fire of our dreams of more travel and enjoying life. Check back for my thoughts on why you can’t afford to travel!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
