Pictures from Our 30-Hour Ocean City Holiday

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Pictures from Our 30-Hour Ocean City Holiday

Our trip may have only lasted about 30 hours, but Dad still took some pictures ... lots of us eating in restaurants, for some reason. None of the beach. That's Dad for ya.

On the way down, Mom and I were very excited and acting silly.

Mom saying, "Vacation! Vacation! Vacation!"


Self-portrait silly face with my sunglasses on upside-down; they hurt behind my ears if I wear them normally for too long.


Lunch at Piezano's with bright orange tabletops and airbrushed murals in the background--OC classic!


We are starting a collection of photos of Mom eating homemade ice keem in various places. Here, she gobbles down a chocolate-peanut butter twist cone from Kohr Brothers on the Boardwalk.


Dad forgot to ask the server to take a picture of us at Brass Balls, and he claimed that the server at the Sea Bay Cafe for breakfast the next day was too old to know how to operate a digital camera. (Dad can say that, being as he's pushing 70 himself!) So here we are at Phillip's, two hours before leaving town. Meh.


Another ongoing photo collection: pictures of me in weird poses with statuary. High-fiving the lion outside of Phillip's.


Homemade ice keem collection: Mom enjoys a banana split at Dumser's right before leaving OC.


Teh Felagund Family again, at Dumser's this time.


Bobby and I drinking the hard stuff: ice water. Back in the day, when we used to go to the ocean with Bobby's family, my mother-in-law was obsessed with the ice water at Dumser's. Never mind their legendary ice cream: She'd ask to go for the water! So we show her here how much we're enjoying that ice water with its snowball ice. Yumyum!


And that's it.

  • It was short but sweet, and will absolutely come down in your family history as a not-forgotten vacation.

    • That it will! I look back at old posts and pictures from vacation sometimes and think, "I'd forgotten all about that trip!" Not this one ... ;)

    Disgruntled woman in background looks on!

    Ugh man i miss Dumser's. I mean, it's a good thing it's nowhere nearby, because i'd probably become suddenly very poor & very rollable.
    • Bobby and I were laughing at the mean mug in the background too! :D Perhaps she envies my mom's ice cream??

      I agree on Dumser's--if I had access to proper ice cream sodas on a regular basis, I'd be no good. Bad enough I have access to proper malts up this way ...
  • This Dumser's sounds pretty awesome! :P

    Really nice pics for such a short vacation, but I am sure you'll go back. It looks very relaxing.

    Love the pic of you high-fiving the statue horse. XD
    • Dumser's is very good! It's not been around for like 80 years without reason! :D

      We are currently planning to go back in October. That will be the off-season, so many places will be closed, but we can also take the Goldens. Lancer hasn't seen the ocean yet. It's also hella cheap to go during the off-season! :D
  • Hurrah for ice keem!

    These accounts of your family vacation are always a treat. Excellent photos, and you have a very, very cool set o' parents there.
    • I count myself as very lucky, family-wise, as I consider my parents as friends as well as family. They are definitely cool! :D
