Best Vacation Ever

Friday, February 26, 2010
I was reading a post over at Gingerbread Snowflakes – Pam’s reply to my Creative Blogger Award nomination of her blog – and admiring all the beautiful travel pictures she’s posted over there – when I remembered about this month’s blog carnival!!! I almost forgot! The EtsyBloggers topics – fun, sometimes thought-provoking, are what keep me part of the group, I can’t let this slide by!

This February 28 Blog Carnival question is:
What's the best vacation your ever had?
 
Easy answer! 2007 Ocean City, New Jersey
wearing a dorky hat, Ocean City, NJ 

I wish I could find some better pictures of this trip – but they have been filed away somewhere and I’ve got to dig them out. Ignore the dorky hat and just enjoy the scenery.

Just a few things about this trip – one, that Ocean City was really a nice, family-friendly place & very peaceful. Their Main Street was full of unique shops & a cafe there even had bubble tea! I love bubble tea – not something I thought I’d find in an out-of-the-way spot. 

What sticks out in my mind is the little bed & breakfast we stayed at – a place called "Somewhere in Time". It was so tiny. So cute. We stayed in “Arthur’s Bungalow”. The cutest part?? My husband booked it because he recognized the name from one of my favorite movies, Somewhere in Time. (I guess you’d call that romantic.)

The whole trip was so peaceful. We could walk everywhere, there was no rushing around, the kids behaved well and there was no stress. That’s what makes this the best vacation ever, in my mind. 
What’s yours?

  3. I like walking around on vacations too, discovering historic landmarks AND places off the beaten path. I used to live in NJ... glad to hear Ocean Beach is still cozy and cute! And yes, your DH sounds very romantic! Nice of him to remember! {:-Deb

  5. Thanks all!
    I could use a vacation right now! This is sure making me feel nostalgic.

    And Deb, isn't that funny? My husband is so NOT romantic for the most part, this is why the event stands out so much for me!
