Just Chillin

So we're holed up in Ocean City MD and having a quiet blast. When you have nothing to do that is pressing or time sensitive, everything becomes a mellow amusement.  How great it was to be reading a murder mystery whose climax takes place upon a rocky wind swept island and you are actually hearing the sound effects behind you as you're reading in the wind.

We took a walking tour today and were completely amused by a macabre miniature golf course that is closed for the season (like just about everything else here). I got some wacky shots of monsters that would scare me away if I were a kid.

 We probably walked about 5 miles today on the boardwalk, around the town, and to a small pier to look at boats. I'm collecting pictures of interesting signs which will be a separate post, but I just have to show you the fine art gallery that we passed...

 Gee, I can only wonder what the inside looks like. Yikes!

Mostly, I am taking pictures of Nature which is what I enjoy doing the most, and I especially like watching the sea gulls... they make me laugh.

We have a little fridge full of fresh food as you get kinda tired of eating out all the time... even if the food is really good. Last night we went to a Japanese Steak House and got our entertainment by watching the chef perform, watching little kids in awe of the knife flipping and pyrotechnics, and singing happy birthday and happy anniversary to total strangers. It was fun, but tonight it's a quiet dinner for two with meatloaf and salad (assembled on one of our beds with Otis overseeing the effort). Now there's some throwing caution to the wind...what would our mother's say to that!

PS Otis is quite comfortable here, only he just got hollered at for attempting to chew the woodwork so he's a little put out now.



  1. I LOVE THAT GALLERY!!! Looks like you are havin' soooooome fun!

  2. We are having lots of silly fun along with some good book reading time! That gallery does look like a hoot...wish it was open! xoxo

  3. Oh Wendy! What an adventure. I know for a fact that my husband and I would get on each other's nerves, more than I dare to count, during a trip like the two of you are taking. Enjoy and Embrace our Earthly delights! I will continue to enjoy your blogs!

  4. Thanks Lori...after being together for 17 years I can count on one hand the times we've actually had a row! We are both pretty mellow and quiet and when those uncomfortable moments of annoyance crop up, as they do... we're self-aware enough to laugh it off. Life is too short to let petty feelings get in the way. Now Otis needs an occasional scolding when his rabbit teeth are itching to chew, but otherwise things are pretty chill. Hope you're enjoying great weather in SC!
