Right after we came back from Boonsboro, MD, we went back to Ocean City, MD the next weekend! Brian couldn’t go this time, so it was just mom and son. We stayed at a place we stayed in last year. It was nice, but we had ants in the sink in the morning on the third floor! Nothing sweet was left out or poured in it as far as I remember.
We got our act together and brought lunch. We decided to grab some caches on the way. I believe the first place we stopped was Dover. The town is mostly a pretty college town. We saw this pretty sight:
This is Silver Lake. It has the perfect name!
Then we stopped at Slaughter Beach to eat lunch. They had a nice pavilion there and some people were enjoying the beach. The septic tanks were getting pumped out too. But we did get a cache!
The hotel is very close to the beach, so we went down for a bit and Sean got his feet wet. I changed my top to a thin t-shirt, but I was freezing! For Sean paying for the room, I looked through Trip Advisor and found a top rated restaurant in West Ocean City. It was about 20 minutes from our hotel and very crowded. We had to sit outside on the roof and it was chilly, but we had nice dinners! Sunset Grille lived up to its recommendations. I think I had Maui maui and Sean had a seafood pasta. We had brie, fruit and crackers for an appetizer. I just checked the menu and I think what we had were specials.
What a neat view of the inlet area at Ocean City
The next day we checked out and got breakfast at Dumsters and looked for some caches. We decided to look around the Assateague and Berlin, MD area.
This is very rare to see a wild pony this close. I am thinking he was getting nibbles from tourists!
We stopped at the visitor center that was new to us. We had been to one years ago. Very nice here!
Loved this mural!
We found a few caches in the area. There was one on the door of an old outhouse, the kind with the half moon!
We stopped at a little western theme park place for a cache. Saw this pretty horse.
We headed home and right now forget what we had for lunch or dinner, perhaps pizza! LOL
We did stop at the cemetery on the way home and grabbed a cache.
I remember we did stop in Smyrna, DE for a multi cache and were pleasantly surprised how cute the town is. The first part of the cache was at the opera house there!
So we always have a few days filled to the brim. We just did that for a day trip on the 6th of July, but we went to the Cape May to Ocean City, NJ area. That will be another day.
