Flash back to 2007 "Girls Gone Wild" weekend in Ocean City VA. Five of us females took a road trip south for an adventure solo. No husbands, no kids, no responsibilities, and what a great bunch of gals to go with. Carol, Barb, Shannon, Nikki, and I had a beachside room overlooking the ocean in one of America's playlands. No kids, no husbands and no responsibilities. Totally girls gone wild. Brews, beach and boys. Barb and I were the only ones married at the time so we stuck to flirting over the balcony that overlooked the boardwalk, while the other three enjoyed what male persuasion was around.
I was unaware that we were traveling to Ocean City VA until we were on the road and not nearly close to our destination and I started to think I was driving for far to long. I thought we were heading to Ocean City NJ. Ocean City VA is a bit more south. I about lost my mind driving, and when we got to about 5 miles to our journey end (there is one road in and one road out to OC) and I had to pee, I was about to kill someone as we were STUCK in a traffic jam, and not a gas station open anywhere.
We finally made it around 11pm and I was so wound up I couldn't sleep.
That evening we hit a dark beach and I had loss a flip flop.
Very cute Barb.
The first morning we made our way down the boardwalk and found a nice place for lunch. Then we hit up the beach and the pool for a little swim. It was so fun to just relax and enjoy ourselves. After a dip in the pool we decided to have dinner and play putt putt golf. Nikki had heard of this place called the Big Pecker. Any place called the Big Pecker had to have good food right? So off to the Big Pecker. Chicken is the Big Peckers specialty. We sat in an outdoor rocking chair table, and everyone (but myself) was on their cell phone. I remember laughing as I look and not a soul, but me was free of a cell phone to their ear. (this was before EVERYONE had cell phones) I just remember how funny I thought it was for all of the girls to be chatting with people back home, who would have predicted that one day....cell phones would be the norm at grocery stores, restaurants, or just about anywhere. (I am still the only one without a cell phone, which made yesterdays adventure without internet and a phone, a bit of a pain in the ass).
I got Mark a Big Pecker t-shirt which presented a chicken and a girl dressed in a bikini golfing. The inscription said something about good peckers and golf. I cannot remember and I am sure I couldn't guess as I am not a golfer. I was a putt putt golfer that night and we headed to play Jurassic golf or some other silly prehistoric tittle.
Barb and Nikki take a ride.
We had so much fun just being silly. These ladies were great fun too. We really need to take another girls weekend getaway. Recap of the lives of these lovely ladies since 2007. Nikki got married (I will post her Bachelorette weekend getaway in Atlantic City sometime soon) and now has triplet's. Carol's divorce was finalized and she is engaged to Mike. Shannon is with her serious SO and has had her second child a beautiful baby girl. Barb who had been trying for years to get pregnant herself, adopted an older child and within months found out that she too is pregnant. Trying to get us all together for a girls getaway has been difficult, but it is hopeful that we will soon.
