Ocean City Vacation
Ocean City, Worcester County, Maryland
Dan and I spent an afternoon fishing on the Pocomoke River at Dividing Creek.
Designated as a wild and scenic river, the Pocomoke is the only bald cypress river in Maryland.
Dan brings a large chain pickerel to the boat, and just as he is about to land it, it bites the line clean off!
We caught many fish, including sunfish, perch and catfish.
A view from our ocean front balcony of an active red fox den. The fox is active in the evening hours and lives on the backsides of shrub succession dune habitat. They feed on crustaceans, birds, rabbits, voles, mice, insects and plants. The den has three fox that we have seen so far, and the frolicking begins at dusk.
Rabbit = fox food.
Our native Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus, Opuntia humifusa.
The home of the original Orange Crush, Smirnoff Vodka, fresh squeezed orange juice and a touch of triple-sec and 7-Up. The key is the ambiance that the entire bar smells like fresh orange juice, as they literally go through many, many cases of oranges per day.
Our crab imperial dinner was delicious.
Mark and Sarah.
Off for another adventure. Thank you Dan and Patti and Joshua and Jessica for visiting during the first half of our vacation week.
An interesting perspective of Ocean City by boat, as seen from the inlet, and with some fast moving water currents.
The Route 50 bridge.
We went up to Fenwick Island, Delaware (Assawoman Bay) and tried out Jessica’s paddle board.
Mark was a fast learner, and did great.
King Neptune of Paddle-Boarders.
Yes Sarah, these are jellyfish nettle infested waters.
Jeb did great too, on his first try using a paddle board.
Jessica’s board is the smallest of the C4 inflatables that you can get. I found it nearly impossible to stay balanced standing, unlike Mark and Jeb. Josh has ordered a significantly larger board that I think I’ll do much better on.
