This is a continuation of Ocean City, Part 1.
The next day was Saturday, and like college students all over the country, we didn’t get up until almost noon. The weather wasn’t as bad as the day before, but still not what you’d call beach weather. We headed over to the beach after lunch, and spent the afternoon frolicking in the water.
After dinner, all of us went mini-golfing. Dean McKnight and his family had joined us at the Manor the night before, so they joined us for mini-golf as well. I’ve always enjoyed mini-golf, and this time was no exception. Here’re some photos of us at mini-golf.
After mini-golf, we called it a day and went back.
The next morning, I woke up bright and early to a brilliantly blue sky. Finally, a good day for the beach! First, I went cycling with Nick and SC on the boardwalk. Growing up in China, the bicycle was THE method of transportation for most families, and I actually really miss it. It was an exhilarating experience riding on the boardwalk and feeling the sea wind blowing past.
Afterwards, we went back for some food and checked out of the Manor. In accordance with tradition, we took some group photos in front of the house.
Then, we headed to the beach. Whereas the beach had been pretty empty the past two days due to unfavorable weather, today it was packed. There were umbrellas, beach chairs and people all over the place. It took us a while, but we finally found a place, set up our stuff, and then headed into the water.
After playing around for a while, we got some boardwalk food for lunch and went go-karting. I’ve always loved driving, so I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, pulling off some spectacular passes.
Then, all too soon, it was time to depart, to return to the reality of life at Lafayette. It had been an extremely fun and refreshing weekend, and it was just what I needed to feel revitalized for the rest of the summer.
