After 30 years of marriage where do you take your sweetie? I can't afford Hawaii, really can't afford London, or Paris. What to do? Then you remember her saying that she's never seen the Atlantic Ocean. Problem solved.
We like to take our time to get where we're going. We also like to take back roads wherever possible. So, instead of just driving to Annapolis, crossing the Bay Bridge, and taking Route 50 to get to Ocean City, we drove up past Baltimore to Elkton and drove around the top of the Chesapeake Bay.
Upper portion of the bay, near Northeast, Maryland
A small Methodist church we passed in our travels.
Ever hear of a church with its own outdoor ampitheatre? This church does.

We got a room at the Princess Royale in Ocean City. This photo is from our balcony, which faced the pool, and looking out at the ocean.
