My father-in-law can point out all the things he did as a kid at the shore and remembers the special moments spent with his grandmother there, just as my husband does. Gosh those 2 remind me of each other more and more as the years go by! J gets giddy here -- and for him, that's a big deal. The memories he has of summers growing up in the quaint town will forever keep him tied to it. He cannot wait for his children to gain the same fond memories and start to appreciate all the little joys that Ocean City has to offer....and oh goodness, if our children do not like Hamburger Construction Company, he might just leave them stranded on the side of the boardwalk somewhere. So let's hope for the best on that one :)
We just smile when we talk about Ocean City, and double check calendars and schedules to see the next time we can possibly get back there. It's just simple times in OC. Nothing to worry about, except maybe what we're going to eat for dinner. Boardwalk bike rides, more mini golf than one should ever play in one week, nostalgic treats, and family memories are what comes to mind when you think 'Ocean City.' You can look around and probably point out the families who have been coming since childhood. The ones who bring their kids years after being a kid themselves on that very boardwalk. It's special -- and yes, it's a happy place, especially J's!
It'll surely make you feel like a kid again -- and if you know me, you know I sure do love that! Like I said before, no fist pumping on this part of the Jersey Shore...so let's fist pump to that :)
Beautiful sights, historic homes and buildings, and family times -- well, I'll let the photos speak for themselves :)
The rest of Ocean City...beautiful!
And until next time OC, stay happy!
