Duck Beach Recap
A full week spent at the beach with a lot of great friends, some new friends, and of course Maya. Here are a few highlights and a bunch of pictures. I only kept about 675 pictures so you may want to pace yourself!
Sorry it has taken so long to finally post something from the beach trip.I am actually still on vacation (
Vacation started with a very late night and a very early morning. Dan convinced that going the midnight showing of X-Men 3 was a great idea. Then I had to finish packing and try to get some sleep before a 3:30AM start to a very long day. I think I managed to get about 45 minutes!
Packed the car (I kept trying to justify the fact the car was FULL to fact that I am packing to two of us for an entire week at the beach!) and headed to BWI to pick up Maya at 5AM.Emily helped us to car to kill time before she headed right back to
The first order of business for Maya was the pool.And thus began the vacation consisting mostly of pool, beach, hot tub, and food.My objective for the week to make sure we did not get sunburned and to attempt to stay on a pretty good sleep schedule.Both of which I think we accomplished pretty well.
We met all of the house-mates throughout the evening and Dan headed up the creation of a big steak feast.
This was the first full day on the beach and the most pictures taken of any of the days (over 400).Most of the pictures are sequence shots of Jeremy and Patrick boogie boarding.
These days blend together but they involved lots of beach time, pool time, hot tub time, and food.On Wednesday morning we walked along the beach in search of the wild horses.We didn’t see any sign of the horses but we did have a nice walk. By Wednesday night, Maya and I were the only two people left in our house and
More beach and pool time with Stephanie, Rae and Erin.Maya helped Stephanie make jars of sand, shells and water to remember the beach.
We went to breakfast with Steph and Rae then they headed home. We played at
Packed up all the stuff and did the final walk-through of the house. Then we helped Erin and Lynnette clean up their house too. It was raining as we drove home which made our departure a bit less depressing.Just before we got to King’s Dominion the rain had stopped so we decided to go for it!I’ll post that next.
Thanks to everyone who was in our house (Tara, Georgina, Scott (
Everyone was able to go to the parties they wanted to then return home and chill.Tara and I had that goal in mind from the beginning and think we succeeded pretty well.Luckily
Thanks fellow beach lovers.
Anyone want to sign up for next year?
