Skim Boarding and Bloody Mary’s in Dewey Beach
Another summer filled with beach weekends has come to an end for me. The summer is over early for us because of our upcoming National Park roadtrip begins in a few weeks. While we made it to Dewey Beach five (!) times this summer, it never seems like enough of this magical place.
Last weekend was the Zap Amateur World Championships of Skim Boarding. Skim boarding is a big thing in Dewey Beach so I was snapchatting it out to my followers and taking lots of photos.
The championship was on my beach block too so we could see it from our deck.
Some of the skimboarders were small kids and there were a few 30-somethings in the mix but mostly teenagers.
This also happened at the Starboard:
It is strange because I’ve always hated Bloody Mary’s. But one rough morning in Dewey Beach I ordered one and my mind was changed. But it could be because it was mostly vodka, with bacon and jumbo lump crabmeat on top.
Starboard’s make-your-own Bloody Mary bar, if that’s your thing:
Jam Session at the Bottle and Cork was a mess this past weekend. It was 110 degrees outside and the Bottle and Cork is an open air venue. I’m not kidding- it was actually 110 degrees. Me and my sweaty back were smashed into the only air-conditioned section with hundreds of other miserable beach-goers sucking down ice water.
The heat also made the beach pretty miserably hot on Saturday. Unfortunately, Ed’s Chicken and Crab shack in Dewey Beach wasn’t able to escape the heat. Some drunk girl smashed her car into the open air restaurant, hit a gas line, and blew up the place. She was able to escape and it was closed when it occurred so no one was hurt. But her car was incinerated along with the restaurant.
So long Ed! (He’s retiring and not rebuilding). Check out pictures of the inferno here.
Coincidentally, my favorite margarita Monday venue, Holy Frijoles, in the Hampden section of Baltimore, burned down too! I’m just going to walk around with a fire extinguisher or at least a spray bottle of water to put out fires and cool myself down on these dog days of summer!
Reader question: Bloody Mary’s- yay or nay? I used to say nay but now I’m like “heyyyyyy-yea!!!!
