Jul 16, 2013 - Ocean City, Maryland
We went for a delicious dinner at the crab shack. Brett and I had surf n turf, a lovely piece of NY steak with a lobster tail on it. Really nice. Also had a shrimp cocktail and crab dip. It was one of the best meals we have had. Purchased another 6 pack for 6.50 and a 6 pack of stollies for 8.99. Our room at the Hampton was nice, overlooked the pool and water and very new and tidy. Breakfast was included in price as has been the case with most hotels we have stayed at which has made it cheaper. The next morning we were up early to enjoy the...Jump to full entry
Jul 14, 2013 - Leaving Washington
We headed off to ocean city after a brekky at au Bon pain. I am loving the these restaurant/cafes have so many healthy choices in one spot, fruit salad, yoghurt, scrambled egg whites along with bakery products, cereal etc. it is very convenient. In addition, entry to everything in dc is free. We wished we'd had time to do the zoo but we needed to move on. Yesterday we were unsure about where to go and I got chatting to a guy in yet another sports store while Brett shopped and he suggested ocean city, so here we are...heading to ocean city....Jump to full entry
Jun 15, 2009 - Another day, Another beach
Nothing much to share with all of you about our day. We loaded up and made the short drive to Ocean City for a day in the sun. The girls are getting a little braver when it comes to the ocean and actually managed to get out past their knees today. The weather has been great, so far.Jump to full entry
Jun 12, 2009 - They're here......
We headed into Philadelpha this morning to take in the sights in and around Independence Park National Historic Site. After checking out the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Franklin court we loaded up in the truck to head to the airport. Our timing was perfect as we pulled up to the curb just after the kids arrived. After hugs and kisses all around we loaded up the luggage and kids. We made a short drive back into Philadelphia for an early dinner at Pat's King of Steaks. Pat's claim to fame is that he is the creator of the Philly...Jump to full entry
Jun 10, 2009 - It's good to have friends....
Prior to our arrival in New Jersey we got ahold of a friend of ours who is from here. She recommended two spots along the shore. First, Ocean City and second, Smitty's Clam Bar in Somers Point. Both of these 'spots' are located less than 25 miles from our campground so we chose to do a little 're-con' of them today. We first stopped at the Ocean City visitor center for maps, etc. This ended up being unnecessary since the whole town is laid out along the beach and is only about four streets deep. We checked out the beaches and the boardwalk...Jump to full entry
May 19, 2008 - By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea
We promised the boys new bikes for their birthday, so we spent a few hours at the local Toys R Us checking out all the cool options. Dylan went immediately for the Tony Hawk model, while Christian took his time deciding on the perfect bike. With new helmets in tow, we headed to the Ocean City Boardwalk for a bike ride. It was windy and cold and pretty much everthing was still closed up, but the boys had a blast anyway. They rode up and down the boards on their new bikes! We even managed to find an open Mack and Manco for a slice of pizza....Jump to full entry
