Dayhoff Time Flies: Ocean City - Down the ocean, hon.


Dayhoff Time Flies: Ocean City - Down the ocean, hon.

Sunday, June 30, 2019 by Kevin E. Dayhoff

This year I enjoyed the summer solstice, Friday, June 21, by doing a 2.25-mile run on the boardwalk in Ocean City. According to the Washington Post, “The summer solstice is … our longest day and shortest night of the year, and the first day of
astronomical summer in Earth’s Northern Hemisphere… In Washington, the sun
(was) up for 14 hours and 54 minutes on June 21, rising in the northeastern sky
(at) 5:43 a.m. and setting in the northwest at 8:37 p.m. (For perspective,
that’s about 5½ hours more daylight than seen on the winter solstice in
December.)”

I could not think of a better way to spend the longest day
of the year than to spend it in Ocean City “down the ocean, hon.”

Some of my fondest childhood memories include leisurely
vacations on the Chesapeake Bay, explorations throughout the Eastern Shore and
walking on the boardwalk in Ocean City. For some reason French fries, pizza and
ice cream, always taste better when it is mixed with an ocean salt breeze,
walking the boardwalk, while fighting off the seagulls.
