Almost ready to head back home

United States
April 21, 2017 7:40pm CST
This past week has just flown by. Tomorrow we make the long trek back home. We will drive for about 14 hours. We're taking a slightly longer route so we can go over the Chesapeake Bay bridge. We had an absolutely amazing vacation. We went body boarding in the ocean, collected tons of cool shells, I got stung by a jellyfish, we visited the aquarium, played mini golf.. we had a ton of fun. I'm so sad to see it end, but we must go back to our jobs and school and dog and cats.. Hope you all had a great week and a better weekend!

It brushed against me while I was swimming. There's dozens of them along the shore at all times. Just sit there for a few minutes and you'll see one wash up.

@katsmeow1213 we have them here in August and I hate them. I never go in the water once they appear.

@Happy2BeMe u thought it was cool to see because I'd never seen one before. I'd rather never touch one again though

Everything sounds terrific, as a vacation should be, except getting stung by a jellyfish! Ouch! We spent a vacation in Cape May, New Jersey. My younger son got stung by a jellyfish and got bitten by a crab on his big toe, but he went right back into the ocean after getting treated by the lifeguard. Lol! I hope it wasn't a Man o' War!

It didn't hurt much.. it was red for awhile but went away quickly. I saw a crab walking along the beach but I didn't get close enough to let it pinch me! No telling what could be in the water though. My kids insisted they weren't going to go in the water because of sharks and other creatures that might be in it... They did though, and they all came out unscathed.

What a great family pic! Wow, you're already coming back . . . it seems like you guys just got there! We like to do that too - take the scenic route home. Well I'm so thrilled you all had a great time - but oh - I hope you're ok from that jellyfish sting !

Yeah the jellyfish sting didn't hurt bad.. it just brushed against my leg and felt like sandpaper. Then my leg got all red, but it went away after a short time. I know, it didn't feel like we'd been there very long. We wished we had skipped DC and spent a few more days in Myrtle Beach. We definitely want to go back again!

@katsmeow1213 You're lucky - I heard jellyfish stings are pretty painful! Oh yah, vacations always seem short. Sounds like another vacation plan to go there will be in the making .

@much2say yes I would like to go back, but there are other places I'd like to visit too..

@hereandthere We originally bought 2 boards, but we all loved it so much and had trouble waiting our turn while someone else used a board.. I had to go buy more!

Sounds like you all had a great vacation, besides the getting stung by a jellyfish part.

That part wasn't horrible. It was a very mild sting. I didn't even know I was stung until I saw my leg get all red in that area.

You will travel long distances, avoid drowsiness and emotion, because you and your family, family safety above all. Sometimes we are careful, but others are not necessarily so. When we come home from sightseeing, the body is tired, the vigilance has decreased slightly. If tired should break first. Hopefully you are welcome home, work awaits dg spirit, new ideas, happiness gained from this journey. Greetings to your family.

Yep, we made it home safely, no problems.

I'm glad the sting wasn't serious and you had a great vacation. Enjoy the trip home. I've been over that bridge when I was in the Navy. I almost forgot until you mentioned it.

We ended up not going that way . We decided it was best to go straight up so it would only take 12 hours.. but with DC traffic, it still ended up taking 14. Might have been even longer had we gone over the bridge. Maybe next time. I'd eventually like to go to Virginia Beach and that will probably take us over the bridge.
