We just got back last night from 4 nights down in Ocean City, MD.
It was a nice relaxing trip.......well, once all the weekenders left on Monday.
Usually they leave on Sunday but since Monday was a federal holiday(Columbus Day)they all stayed an extra night and partied hard.
Our room was right over the outside pool bar AND as a bonus, right next to the elevator(oh JOY!lolz)so there wasn't much sleeping until late into the night on Sunday.
So we jacked up the a/c & the TV, closed the balcony patio door and drank until they all went to bed.
Monday to Wednesday was fine and we bugged out yesterday right before the Weekenders started arriving.
The weather was great to ok but warm the whole time. There was rain at night on Wednesday and it rained that day while we were at the movies but by the time we came out of the theater it had stopped. Thursday was suppose to be rainy for the drive home but the front blew through Wednesday and was gone by Thursday morning and we had sunny skies for traveling home.. We made good time on the road until we hit just past Philly on the turnpike extension and sat for an hour due to construction(not rush hour!). That was the only bad spot both coming and going home. The TV guy at home said we got 3 inches of rain in 1 day while we were gone so we dodged that bullet too!
It was a low-key getaway. We didn't "do" much, just hung out, wandered around and ate and drank a bit. And went to Salisbury MD one night to visit with a friend.
We spent $1172.36 on this trip on exclusively trip-related expenses(gas, hotel, food, tolls, pet boarding, etc.). That's an average of $293.09 a day for this vacation.
Another $289.82 was spent on items we brought home(mostly booze). We do a "Delaware Booze Run" on this yearly trip to OC. There are some liquor stores down in DE with inexpensive prices(no sales tax too)where we stock up on "adult beverages" we can't get in draconian PA.
Hubs favorite whiskey is sold in 49 of 50 US states.....guess which one they can't sell it in? 8-(
So we are home now and have the weekend to get back into reality mode.
Nah......maybe we'll stay in vacation mode for a couple more days.
Except for I need to go to Rite-Aid......of course! lolz
What has everyone been up to lately? I've read some blogs but need to get up to speed with everyone.
