We were helping Daniel’s friend most some stuff around outside yesterday. I am so bit up because the mosquitoes are so bad this year. I hate how much they love my blood and how badly I react. Daniel was bit up, too, but his went away within two hours. It’s been over 24 hours now, and I still have huge welts. Uggh. Just ugh.
Anyway! That’s enough complaining! I came here to write about something awesome.
My amazing husband knew how upset I was about the whole doctor’s appointment fiasco (which I forgot to mention that she told me that she wouldn’t do anything about my anxiety. I had to find a shrink and go talk it out with them. She said I probably didn’t need medication, just someone to talk to. Blah. I’ve been there, done that.). So, he woke me up super early today to take me to Atlantic City to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic.
What a super sweet surprise! I probably would’ve put my Kindle down sooner and got some more sleep if I would’ve known, though. He stopped for Wawa coffee on the way, though. So, it was all forgiven.
One thing, though, he forgot to account for traffic/traffic lights/extra time to park and setup/all that fun stuff. So, we got to see the BEAUTIFUL sunrise while still in the car. So, no photos for you guys. Boo, right?
Well, I caught the end of it.
Well, now that I have a better idea of the time-frame of the Atlantic sunrise, I’m going to attempt this again soon! I know I have to leave at least 1:15 early instead of only 45 minutes.
The early morning sky is so beautiful, though! If you know me, you know I love looking at and photographing the sky. Today was no different.
We then spent a few hours visiting the lighthouse and walking the boardwalk. Seriously, guys, we walked over 8 miles today (my fitbit is at over 30,000 steps so far today!). CRAZY. My hip is killing me.
Of course, I have pictures!
After we were done with all of that, we headed a bit south to see Lucy the Elephant. I don’t know how I’ve made it 5+ years in South Jersey without visiting her. She is amazing! I read about her in a Weird NJ Book a while ago, and I finally got around to checking her out!
You can take a tour through her insides, but we opted not to do that. We had been walking for four hours and were hungry. So, we just took a few quick photos and left to find food.
Next time, when I get there in time to see the sunrise, I will, maybe, take a trip to tour Lucy’s innards. Maybe. We’ll see.
What fun and exciting things did you do this weekend?
