Summer on the Eastern Shore

Summer in Washington, DC, offers some fantastic opportunities (beyond heavy humidity!). I'm a huge believer in taking advantage of geography. So here are a few photos from my latest adventures (the first is not actually in Washington, but near. Sort of. Kind of a long drive with Bay Bridge traffic.):If you look closely, you can see the porpoises swimming in the water.
At first I thought they were sharks and I had Jaws music racing through my head.

On the fourth of July, Marni and I drove out to the beach in Delaware. It was a most delightful day--perfect temperature, delightful water, fresh fruit & veggies galore, the #1 Ladies Detective Agency, beach umbrella and chairs. We sat and read and rolled over and walked into the water and ate and soaked in the sun. Then on the way home we stopped at the outlets (I found a new swimming suit for $5!) and made our way back to DC in a torrential downpour with lightening. We did find a dry place to eat with delicious steak and crab cakes.
Last night Mauri and I rode our bikes out to Iwo Jima for the Marine Corps Sunset Parade. They marched to Sousa of course and then did a Silent Drill. It felt so Washington. It was another delightful evening.

One of my life goals is to one day do the 4th in DC. One day.

Like the locks.
