Ocean city & Crabs

 What I am wearing: Top - Alfani@Macys (similar); Tribal print shorts - Calvin Klein@Nordstorm Rack (as seen here) (similar); Cuff - Local farmer's market (similar); Cross body bag & summer sandals - DSW;
Earrings - Old Navy; Watch - SWATCH; Oversized sunnies - American Eagle

Yep, you read it right! This post is about our sunny trip to Ocean city, Maryland and not Jamaica. I wish I was in Jamaica though right now..its windy, chilly, cold, winter, and everything that makes you pine for summer. But before I go in a full-blown crib mode (winter makes me cranky!) lets get back to the summer travel post.

We visited Ocean city in September last year! (you might have previously read about Ocean city here). J and I had a total blast needless to say..chilled beers, fresh masala-wale crabs, sand beneath our feet and delish pina-coladas!

It was my very first experience at eating crabs - cracking them up and then scooping out the soft-n-fresh meat ..I tell yeah, it's an experience in itself! The server gave us a small wooden hammer and showed 'how to crack open a crab and get to the soft n fresh yumminess hidden inside'. And after that we were pretty much on our own with a dozen crabs waiting to be delved into. By my 3rd/4th crab, I was kinda tired and lazy but the fun of eating it that manner was way too much fun, so well, I kept going. On the other hand, hubby was at his best, cracking it perfectly, and enjoying every bit of the process. Nevertheless, I am sure we will be back to this beach city full of life, sunny weather, fresh crabs and a perfect relaxing atmosphere.

Our next stop was 'Seacrets'..the best restaurant-cum-pub haven in town! You gotta go here if you are in Ocean city. They have tables in water! Need I say more??

Anyhow, I am just waiting for summer, so that we can pack our bags, drive down to this fab spot, put up my feet and relax!

Crab-fest yumminess :)
