Can you cram an entire summer into four days? Pretty much yes. And that's exactly what we did. I was lucky enough to have Friday off from work, so we kicked off our miserably hot, long weekend early with a trek through the John Heinz at Tinicum Nature Preserve, which was gorgeous and full of birds, as promised. Saturday morning we left early and spent the day hiking through the fields and exploring ruins at Valley Forge, and today we finally relented to the heat and went to the beach.

Despite entering the weekend with absolutely zero plans, we had a really, really great time, and I have to say our timing for Ocean City was perfect. We were driving in when everyone else was leaving, which meant a nearly empty boardwalk and low-key crowds on the shore. Sometimes playing it by ear is precisely what you need to do.

See ya summer.

Gorgeous photos (that truly epitomize summer). I'm sad for it to be over.
