We woke up on day 2 of our trip to some beautiful weather. It was warm and sunny, so we all knew that we'd spend the largest portion of the day on the beach. My parents and I always wake up several hours before @flowerbaby and my brother/his fiance. So during our few hours of alone time, we chatted while I worked on my blog content.
Speaking of that, I'm so happy to see how much interaction yesterday's post got. Thank you to everyone who was commenting and voting it up so others could find it. I thought my content would have to take a hit during vacation, but it seems a lot of people enjoy simple posts like this with a bunch of photos more than a video of me just talking about random stuff. I enjoy creating both, but the more I travel the better.
After I finished my blog, it was time to cook my morning steak. I can't seem to get anybody else to want to eat a NY Strip with me each morning, so it was all for me. Good thing I brought my cast iron skillet from home, so cooking here is nice and easy.
By the time I finished eating, everybody else started to get out of bed finally. While they were eating and stuff, I got all of our beach supplies ready to go for the day. One of the most difficult parts of the beach is the process of carrying the canopy, chairs, and everything else that we must have during our hiatus by the ocean. I always feel so accomplished once everything is set up and we are able to just chill. We were all out there together from around 10 am-230 pm. I think we all got quite a bit of sun and I'm definitely happy that I've been spending so much time working on my tan by going to the pool the last few months. This is the first time that I've arrived at the beach not being totally pale since I was 18 years old. I am turning 30 in October, so quite a while.
@flowerbaby and I came inside about 30 minutes before everyone else. This was so we could stagger our showering and everything went smoothly because of that. 6 people are one too many to fit comfortably in my mom's badass new Red/Black Chevrolet Trailblazer, so we had to drive separately to our next destination. We took a trip that was about 45 minutes away to Rehobeth Beach, DE. You see, Ocean City, MD is right on the border of Delaware. So I was able to take @flowerbaby to see Delaware for the first time. Older colonial towns up towards the New England area are so cool and much different than the architecture and landscapes down south. The drive along the beach the whole way was very pleasing and Hannah took so many photos of random things. I could tell she was enjoying herself, which I always love to see.
You may wonder why we drove to another beach while we were already at a beach. My dad had specifically mentioned that he wanted to go to the Dogfish Head Brewery, which just happens to brew some of his favorite beer and was located up the coastline in Rehobeth Beach. I'm very happy that we took the time to go there and not just because we all sipped on tasty beer together. It's also just such a unique little town and we loved walking around the central area and exploring the many different stores together.
Our food and drinks were fantastic and it was all made better by the fact that our wait for the table ended up being only 30 minutes rather than the 80 minutes they had originally told us. Plus, the first beer that my dad ordered ended up being free since the glass was only 85% full, due to the keg tapping out right as the bartender poured it.
Once we finished our exclusive beer at the cool little brewery, it was time for ice cream. Odd combination I know, but it was worth it. A few people purchased custom dog collars/leashes/shirts for their pets. Hopefully, I can get some photos of that later down the road.
It was starting to get dark and we all decided to depart back towards our condo in Ocean City. We stopped at the store on the way home and that made us arrive a few minutes after my parents. We were all out of energy and stayed up only a little bit more once we were home. In that short period of time, our upstairs neighbors came down and knocked on our door. They offered us pretty much an entire pizza that had just been delivered to them. They mistakenly ordered entirely too much and were leaving the next morning. I didn't eat any, but pretty much everyone else feasted on it.
Off to bed, we went and now here I am the following morning writing about it all. That is about it for our second day. I'm going to hop off of here and get to cooking my juicy steak for breakfast. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed the photos.
