...also known as Valerie's Big Gay Beach Weekend.
We rented a house at the beach...specifically at Fort Columbia State Park. It slept 12. It had a dining table for 12. It had couches for more than 12. It had old relics to explore. It had beach. It had bald eagles, sea gulls, terns, cormorants, grebes, ducks, newts, snails, slugs and a plethora of other wild life. The rental was affordable, fun and exceeded expectation.
And all that was just the location.
It was filled with great food. With old friends and new friends. With laughter, stories and good-natured fun. With quiet conversation, reading and intense scrabble. With raucous game playing, leg wrestling and raw, unfettered talent.
