Ocean City: Wide, White Sand, Carnival Beach!

Hi guys,

After we came back from Georgia and Florida and two days before we left the Jubilee Farm/Woodlawn Slack Farms odyssey, we ---  David, Chris (a friend), Elisabeth, Jana, Lisa, Tina, Verena & Monika --- made a day-trip to Ocean City. 

With two cars we started the 5 hour trip to the popular vacation place and at noon we arrived there. We were surprised by the heat, because during the drive it rained and was very cloudy.  

 Here we are arriving to great SUN on the boardwalk and it is HOT! That's David in the middle.

The city has a beautiful long sand beach and a lot of nice small shops. And rides. 

 The white sand seems endless.

At first we went along the boardwalk on the beach, stopped at some shops to go in or buy one or another snack. Then David decided to get some braids. But Verena and I went into the Ocean. That was really funny, because the waves were quite big and so sometimes they overturned us. And the cold water was really refreshing on this hot day.

 Elisabeth was looking for a sweater as a souvenir, Tina, Lisa, Jana and Klara were just looking around. Here's what you see from the shops:

On our way home, we made a stop in Annapolis and had dinner in the Thai Restaurant Lemongrass. All in all it was a great day, with a (too) long car-trip, good food, nice weather and a beautiful place.
