Beach Getaway

Thanks for all the get wells and the new followers! You guys are pretty swell ;-)

I am planning on bringing my laptop to the beach (I read the condo has internet) so I can update you on our trip and all the things we do and eat! WIAW beach edition!

I think the worst thing about getaways is the packing... I still haven't unpacked from last weekends beach trip, yet alone start to pack/shop for this weekends beach trip!

When CL and I took the pups to the beach earlier this year, see below, we made a list of all the things we wanted to do; just to make sure nothing was forgotten! It worked like a charm then, so here are a few of my lists... what to see, what to do, what to eat!

What to See:
Try to spot a dolphin in the ocean
Wake up early one morning to watch the sunrise
Take a photo of each day's sunset
I would love to see my girl friends who live/are visiting the beach
Sand crabs
Watch a movie on the beach (they are playing Megamind on Monday)

What to Do:
Take a walk on the beach at least 2 nights with just me and CL
Go running at least 3 mornings
Ride the ferris wheel on the boardwalk
Go parasailing/jetskiing
Take a nap on the beach
Take a family photo on the beach (hopefully color coordinated)
Make a family style breakfast once or twice
Take lots of photos and blog at least twice
Meet up with Jennifer from LoveEatRun
Fly a kite
Put-Put golf

What to Eat/Drink:
CRABBSSSS, I have been craving all summer long
Find a frozen yogurt shop in OCMD
Vegetarian lunches at least 3 out of 5 days
Frozen Strawberry Skinny Girl Margs
I would love to eat outside at a restaurant on the bay at least once.
Make watermelon skewers for lunch, like these
Make Kate's orzo salad, found here.
Pack things to make sandwiches/wraps - turkey, avocado, etc.
