Weekend at the Bay

I'm having trouble believing that today is Monday. I guess a long holiday weekend will do that to you. After the first to days the rest just melt together. It was hot enough, it could happen. We spent the Fourth of July and the rest of the weekend on at our friend's home on the bay in Maryland. The drive down wasn't bad, we made good time, but google maps had other ideas once we got close to the house. First it suggested that we take a shortcut across someone's private property but I suppose we should give it a tiny be of credit for choosing an actual road for option one. The second way it suggested involved driving through a field full of deer and through some trees. It was dark enough that we actually starting to drive into the field before we realized that there was a solid wall of trees and google had obviously lost it. I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. After texting Liz a screen shot of the field she directed us to the correct road and everything was fine. We drove by that field the next day for reference. It the daylight it's really obvious that it's not a road to anywhere, not to mention there was a fence on the other side of those trees. Really google maps? What in the world were you thinking? 

The rest of the weekend was so much fun. We spent a lot of time sitting on the dock, playing in the water, and drinking margaritas. There was also wake boarding and tubing, and JD brought his slackline down and set it up over the water. It was impressive how good everyone got at it by the end of the weekend. The furthest I got was three steps which isn't very far at all. It was just a nice relaxing weekend, and most likely the last getaway we'll take before the bar exam.

Gus really wanted his picture taken. He wouldn't leave me alone once he saw the camera.

On the Fourth of July. We had the perfect viewing spot from the dock. 
The fireworks were set off just a little further down the river in the marina.
Fresh raspberries grow along the lane leading to the house. 
They were picking and put in homemade ice cream one night.
There were so many frogs in the evenings. I had to catch one.


  1. Docks, fresh raspberries, and frogs. Looks magical.
