Skyland and Ocean City, MD

On Friday May 25th, we left early and had breakfast up on Skyline Drive at Skyland.

Above is Julie on Stony Man Mountain on Skyline Drive.

Julie and me on Stony Mountain.

Great view of how Skyline drive winds over the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Great day to take the top off the Grand Sport Corvette

The waves were perfect for body surfing and boogie boarding.

A nice 360 degree of Ocean City Beach down near where the boardwalk begins.

Above is me boogie boarding at Ocean City, MD on Saturday the 26th.  Last year the beach was terrible with shore breaks (waves breaking right near shore with a record number of neck injuries).  This year, because of winter storms that flattened out the shore, the waves are now breaking further out and are perfect.

We also had a record return from Ocean City, MD to my house in Ashburn in 2 hours and 53 minutes - no speeding - just got very lucky on traffic.

One of the benefits of living in the DC area is that you are less than 2 hours from the mountains and less than 2 hours to the ocean beaches.
