In Which We don't get to go

There is a grand Hitty gathering this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (today) in Wallingford, PA.  Our person was not doing her duties as a Hitty companion when it was announced, and registrations were closed before she knew she had missed it.  There is much Hitty meeting, greeting, talking, learning, crafting, gifting, traading and adopting, and WE ARE MISSING OUT ON IT.
The Hitty Girls at home decided to Pitch A Fit, and share the photos on the group site for those lucky ones to see when the return home.  Thankfully, the Chesapeake Bay Hittys did not misbehave quite as badly as some other Hitty families.
But, Hitty Beatrix was found writing a very long entry in her journal.  It began "Dear Diary, this is the worst week of my life..."  I suppose she needs to work out her feelings of disappointment, jealousy and saddness on her own.
Hitty Beatrix writes in her diary
Her sister, Hitty Rosemary, went to bed - with an entire chocolate cake!  She refuses to get up until she gets a new dress.  That could be a very, very long time, knowing our Person!

The youngest, Hitty Faith, pitched the worst fit.  It was so disturbing, I'm afraid she had to sit in the corner, instead of enjoying the latest Hitty Robertson book that we received in the mail earlier this month. Hitty Faith must sit in the corner
I will be keeping the entire Hitty family away from the computers here until things settle down.  There is no good thing that can come from them hearing the stories of the luckier Hittys when they return home.

Respectfully yours,
Hitty Grace Sycamore-Brown

In Which Hitty Grace goes on a Day Trip

Since Hitty Rachel got to go on the summer vacation at the beach in North Carolina, it was Hitty Grace's turn to go to the beach.  Can you guess where we went?

Hitty Grace's Big Day Out

We took a day trip to Ocean City, Maryland.  We left our house before dawn in order to be able to spend the whole day at the beach.

Boardwalk Entrance

We took our cameras while walking the Boardwalk.

The Inlet end of the Boardwalk

There are far less people here now that everyone is back in school, even on the weekends.  During the summer, it is usually too crowded to be fun.  You still need to be careful not to walk infront of the bicyclists, though!  Ask my person how we know this - she was almost hit!

Boardwalk near the Inlet end

The Inlet end of the Boardwalk has buildings on both sides.


Then it opens up to the beach.

Ocean City Boardwalk

The Boardwalk now has a long run where there's a cement walk closest to the beach.

For the OC Firefighters

The Firefighter's statue is new since our last visit.

Ripley's on Ocean City, MD Boardwalk

We've never gone in Ripley's - but the shark through the building is fun!

Kite Loft Kites on Boardwalk

The kite store had a lot of kites anchored to the beach.  They were fun to see.

After our Boardwalk walk, we ate lunch, played putt putt golf, spent some time sitting on the beach (while the younger members of our party enjoyed the water), went to Candy Kitchen, ate dinner and then headed home.

It was a great day of fun!
