Jersey Shore

Posted: July 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

So a quick weekend in Ocean City to relax and chill out a bit. It is really hot up here – big time heat wave. But last night was cool and breezy when the wind shifted and came off the ocean. Enjoyed a delicious cheese steak sandwich from our favorite spot – Voltacos.

Ocean City boardwalk. The lifeguards have an American tribute and flag raising every morning at 9:20. Pretty neat to see all the people who show up for this.20110723-112425.jpg

Reality Creeps In

Today was my second day back at work and it was difficult – this week, a LOT of long time space center workers leave. I’ve been saying Goodbye to old friends all day yesterday and today. Very sad. So meanwhile, I decided to go look up this chapel our Germany team stopped at in Bavaria and found a great picture of the St. Coloman Chapel with Neuschwanstein in the background.

St. Coloman was hanged in 1012 in Stockerau, Austria after being accused of spying.

No pictures today. Just a recap going backwards in time…

We check out of the hostel in less than an hour. Short night of sleep having attended the Harry Potter opening last night at 10:30. Everything is so different…

Had dinner at the Astoria Waldorf club house. It’s just like our golf and tennis country clubs, except your surrounded by soccer fields.

Played a U15/16/17 Astoria Waldorf team and won. Goals from Amanda, Susannah, Summer and Mercedes.

See you all tonight in Rockledge.

So the flight was delayed 30-40 minutes, but otherwise a good flight. They made up the time and we arrived early. 2 meals and great service.

At the bank right now exchanging USD. The German bankers are giving us first class service for the exchange. Everyone is a little tired, but in good spirits. We’re off to the hostel, dinner and then to the Fan Mile. USA vs Sweden. Go USA!
