I’m always enjoyed going to Ocean City a few times each year. Most of the time its with the family which is great. Sometimes it by myself which is great also because I can totally march to my own tune for a day or two. Sometimes its with a friend for the day. Regardless of who and when I always seem to have a great day. I went yesterday so here are a few shots from this visit on Aug 14th.
I’ve always found photographing this town and people a very fun experience. Mostly family photos but I’ve started to expand in recent years. Light is a beautiful thing and there is plenty of it here. And the people, I can sit for hours each visit just watching the diversity. Like these two ladies below who were drag racing down the boardwalk and what was a initial speeding incident turned into an EMS event. Just kidding about the racing.
But OC is about relaxing for allot of us. That can include anything from surfing the waves to riding a chair and railing.
This used to be quiet the party town (Believe it or NOT) but a persistent effort for decades now seems to be paying dividends for those who chose that path of a Family Destination.
Parasail has always caught my interest. But who regulates this business? I’m sure the view is beautiful and I’m sure it’s safe. But I think I’ll stay on the boat or land.
It’s the land of Power Fishing and Power Boating. I had some rockfish bites for an appetizer at Dead Freddies and they were great.
Again this year I failed to try something that is on my bucket list. I want to ride a jet ski. Shouldn’t be too hard. I road a motorcycle for over 3 decades. So next summer is the year I take that wet ride. Actually I’m afraid I might like it so much I’ll have to buy one and a trailer and then I’ll need to buy a new truck to hall it around.
Overall it was another great visit yesterday and the week of vacation a week before that really helps one get a mental balance. I think its the sound of the waves, the feel of the sand between your feet and all the beautiful nature and people. So may the Marlin continue to jump and the waves continue to pound and the people continue to come. Thanks for another great season OC.
