I have spent the past few days in Ocean City, Md., with a few of my best teacher friends! We have eaten our way through town and had a great time!
And dining out, of course!
Everyone had to go home on Monday but I was staying until Wednesday, by myself and I had the best time!
I thought I’d be lonely with no one around but I was fine.
I spent both mornings on the back deck of my friend’s beach house with a cup of coffee and SILENCE.
I just sat watching the water and people on their kayaks. I cannot tell you what I was thinking because I really wasn’t thinking. I was truly in a moment of relaxation. Normally, at home I’d have laundry to do, school work, or running the kids around. Not here. Here I had nothing to do.
After breakfast and coffee I watched Shark Week on Discovery.
Then it happened. It started pouring! I knew this was going to happen so I planned on going to the movies. This was a huge step for me. I have never gone to a movie alone.
I tried to talk myself out of it several times but finally got into the car.
I liked it. I sat where I wanted and watched a movie I wanted. I had a great time.
After the movie, I went to the boardwalk for a nice walk. I just wanted to put my feet in the sand one last time before I went back to school.
On my way home, I picked up some to-go crab legs at Higgins and sat on the back deck. The atmosphere was great and so was the company…
All in all, I had a good time alone. I think I may do it again next year.
P.S. If you are looking to stay at a great beach house in Maryland, let me know. I have a great contact!
