Before about 4 months ago I never really traveled. I live in New York about 20 minutes away from Manhattan on the New Jersey border. My idea of vacation was maybe Connecticut, Pennsylvania, & of course New Jersey. Well when CJ came into my life a whole new door opened to me. Traveling. I’ve actually become obsessed lately about all the new places I can go & see the differences from where I live. Last time it was Chicago, Illinois. This time Ocean City & Assateague, Maryland.
There isn’t 7 Eleven’s but Royal Farms & Wawa (<3), instead of Burger King & Mcdonald’s there is Hardee’s or Arbys, or instead of a Denny’s there is a heavenly place called Waffle House. I <3 Waffle House. There smothered & covered hash browns were delicious!!!! CJ’s friend has a house in Assateague Maryland & that’s where we stayed. I had no idea tho what lil treasures this new state had to offer me. I quickly found out.
At Assateague Beach there are wild horses that roam freely amongst the beaches. Isn’t that crazy? Wild ponies that are free to roam & wander as they please. They’re beautiful absolutely beautiful. One of the days at the beach we were just sitting drinking some beers & watching the waves when I noticed 3 of the ponies eating some of the sand dune grass. I did some research on the area & there is no true story of why the horses are there, but they have adapted to the land & live there all year round. They are tinier than then regular horses so they all look like ponies. I wish I could have taken one home!!
I wish I could have done more but we only stayed for 3 days. We walked the boardwalk of Ocean City, saw America’s oldest carousel, ate funnel cake, & tried to relax for a lil time. I did learn that the next time I go anywhere with CJ we have to use my car because his is a stick shift. I got up way earlier than everyone so I would have loved to go out on my own more. Maybe next time. We played mini golf twice & ate all the seafood we could eat. Hehe. I did like it down there but I wish I had more time. Next summer please come faster! =)
Here are some photos from the trip:
The Pirate/Volcano Mini Golf course CJ & I went to! Crazy huh?
The most delicious Scallops with garlic sauce & tomatoes dish. Omg it was soo good @ Phillip's restaurant.
The Oldest carousel in America located on the boardwalk in Ocean City!
Doesn't this look like Merlotte's from True Blood??? hehe.
CJ & I stealing a quick kiss! <3
Random shark at Frontier Town. I conquered it.
So if you live on the East Coast & looking for a very quiet beach that isn’t the Jersey shore & have a love for horses, Ocean City & Assategue might be for you! =) Have you ever been there?
