Ocean City, in Pictures

As promised, I'm finally getting to a recap of our trip to Ocean City and Assateague National Seashore this past week. We are still riding high from the fun of it all, and so as to not make this a mile-long post I'll hit the highlights, then share a few pictures that tell it all much better than I would be able to anyway.

We spent two nights away, and stayed at the Atlantic Hotel right on the boardwalk. The drive took less than four hours and Amy was an angel for all of it. Not one complaint. We spent two mornings on Assateague Island, a short drive from Ocean City. There we took several toddler-friendly hikes through dunes, marsh, woods, and beach. And of course we saw the horses! One even walked right past us on the beach. Amazing. We ate out at restaurants on the water both nights, explored the boardwalk (just a little), and took a ride on the Ferris Wheel. We hit the beach, but with so much wind and huge waves it was not swimming weather. Still a thrill for all! Oh and those rocking chairs - on the deck of our hotel - beautiful place to watch the melee below from a pleasant distance.

I think that hits the high points (actually the whole trip was high points). Now, relax and enjoy a few pictures. Can we go back now?


  1. Looks like a great trip! Maybe the next one should be southward?? :)
