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!

Wow, it looks like a great time. I really prefer going places when it's not so crowded too. Looks like you chose the perfect time to go.

That is always the best thing about going at this time of year...far less people around. Glad you all had a good time, the photos are lovely.

It was a great day! We are planning to find a day to take my Mom with us - there's a store there we think she'd really like called "Salty Yarns" - all kinds of yarns and cross stitch things.
