I took the kids to the pool while John and Dorothy rustled up dinner and Jack worked on a final paper due the next day. We were treated to the best the Maryland delaware shore has to offer: fresh corn, fresh tomatoes, and yummy blue crabs! And the most delicious peanut butter pie for dessert. Mmmm!
We rounded out the weekend by going surf fishing the next day. John has a truck with a license to drive on the beach, so we loaded up the poles and coolers and beach gear, and drove right to the water. With about 10 bazillion others. The place was like a parking lot. Very friendly, easy going crowd, but impossible to swim and fish at the same time. Just not enough real estate. That's the thing with the Delaware shore. So may people, so little space for them. Even the ocean becomes wall-to-wall people. But still two amazing days on the shore.
No fish were caught, but no kids were either!
Aquaboy was stung a few times by particularly nasty jellies, but he recovered with the help of our neighbors and their Windex and meat tenderizer. Before bed, when his stings were stinging him again, I followed their advice and put shaving cream on, over Windex. Who knew?
