We had been planning this beach trip since the end of March, so when the time finally came we were super excited. Our original plan was to go for the weekend, but even in March no hotels had any openings so it became a day trip. But when we arrived at the beach it was super crowded, like more so than normal (apparently there was some kind of big event going on this weekend... just our luck). So, instead of spending the day at Ocean City like we had planned to do, we drove for 4 1/2 hours just to spend 30 minutes at a different beach (Fenwick Island State Park), in a whole different state because instead of the 90 degree weather we were planning on, it was actually 60 degrees and super windy.
Not all adventures end well. This one didn't. But at least we know what to do next time.
