Ocean City, MD. and Assateague Island

My son and grandson at the Assateague Island National Park.

We saw the Assateague ponies on our way out of Assateague.

The ocean on Assateague Island. It's very relaxing here at Assateague. No stores, no huge crowds, and no noise except for the sound of the waves and the seagulls.

Sunset on the bay of Ocean City from Talbot Street. In the foreground is the Angler Restaurant. Behind the Talbot Inn Motel, where I am standing on the second floor porch, is the M.R.Duck's Restaurant. The drawbridge is behind the post of flag but it is difficult to see. The Angler Restaurant has been in Ocean City for 70 years, I believe.

This is one great sign that is displayed in Ocean City !

My grandson, with the boardwalk in the background. The boardwalk has been in Ocean City since 1902. It has grown to three miles long.

This is Dumser's Dairyland Factory. It's been a part of Ocean City history since 1939. Of course, I had to try the original orange swirl cone.

My grandson is standing under the boardwalk sign.

A fishing pier on the inlet of the bay at Ocean City. You can fish here all day for a small fee.

My grandson, who was tired of having his picture taken...also, a little 11 year old atttitude showing.

Can you find my grandson in this photo ? This is taken on the boardwalk.

The throw away camera worked, but I sure missed my digital camera !
