Walking on the award-winning boardwalk the visitors were enjoying a beautiful day at the beach.

Passing the ever popular Thrasher’s French Fries, already the line was so long.  To tell you the truth I am not such a big fan of them because I like my fries crispy.

DSCN0411

DSCN0412

Hundreds and hundreds of people were checking out this first day of Sunfest.  Apparently, the weather might be a little crazy on Saturday evening, so if you get a change today and tomorrow, please stop by.

DSCN0416

The tent we were looking for was the Food Tent and we immediately found it.

One food vendor after another.  If you have been at Sunfest before you probably have your favorites.

You can sit down in the many tables available or just stand and use the tall tables as well.

Destination? Ocean Downs Racetrack, Casino at Ocean Downs, 2015 Live Racing Season, Ocean City, Maryland…And They’re Off!!

dscn6604

After a very satisfying dinner at Sello’s in Ocean City, Maryland, we took off for Ocean Downs Racetrack & Casino.  This has been a racetrack for 66 years.  We were looking forward to a nice evening of harness racing and a little gambling, as well.  Don’t worry our bets were very conservative.  Address 10218 Racetrack Rd.  Tel. 410641-0600

Casino at Ocean Downs has 800 slot machines and electronic table games, like Crabs, Blackjack, Roulette and Poker.  For more information please visit http://www.oceandowns.com.

At the game tables you will play against a virtual croupier.  You have to be 21 years old and please play responsibly.

dscn6605

A Trotter or a Pacer?  The Trotter moves a right leg and a left leg forward at the same time; his right front and left rear, then his left front and right rear.  The Pacer moves both legs on the same side of his body forward at the same time.

Running horses gallop, moving both front legs forward and then both rear legs forward.

dscn6619

At the racetrack children are allowed to come in if accompanied by an adult.  You must be 18 or older to place a wager (bet).  Four wagers are available:  Win, Place, Show Exacta, and Big Triple.

dscn6612

When you wager (bet), you are not betting against the track, but against everyone who is making that type of wager in that race.  Post time is 7:20 p.m.

dscn6606

All of us won some money on that beautiful evening.  We laughed…we were there to have fun.  First I started picking the horses traditionally….by their starts.  Then, I said the heck with this, it is going to be by the names.  Their names were just too good to pass.

dscn6614

Here are some of the names:  What I say Goes, Girlfriend Bash, Givetheladyabeer, Fashion Villager, Gimmesomeroom, Feelingmightygood, A Wild Impulse, Big Is Better, Howsaboutakiss, Shessoserene, Well Maid.

There were 11 races on Sunday evening.  You can watch these races every Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday through September 4th.

dscn6616

Please visit the website http://www.oceandowns.com/racing.php for other events going on.  On August 27th The Clydesdale Horses will appear.

“Dinner is where magic happens in the kitchen.”  kris carr

Stopping for a very early dinner on Sunday, with friends, en route to the Harness Races at Ocean Downs Casino…our choice?  Sello’s, located at 9802 Gold Course Rd., Tel. 410-390-3543  Website?  http://www.sellosoc.com

dscn6592

Sello’s does not accept reservations, but you may call ahead of time to tell them you are coming.  The restaurant’s decor and logo is based on the following fabric.  I have no idea why, but all I can tell you is that the pants I was wearing had a similar pattern.

dscn6590

dscn6588

The restaurant is comfortable and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.  Throughout the restaurant you will see photographs taken by the owners in Italy.

dscn6593

The bar is cozy, another very welcoming area to wait or just enjoy a few drinks.

dscn6589

After an order of drinks we got down to the business of appetizers:

Carpaccio di Manzo…Thinly sliced tenderloin of beef garnished with capers, chopped onions, shaved parmigiano reggiano cheese and arugula.

dscn6595

Barbabietola e Finocchio…Roasted Beets & Fennel with black olives, grilled asparagus, gorgonzola cheese in a citrus vinaigrette.  Love beets and these were delish.

dscn6596

Pomodoro Caprese…Nothing like fresh tomatoes this time of the year with fresh mozzarella, as well…Fresh Burata Mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and basil with a touch of EVO and balsamic vinegar.

dscn6594

Catching up with friends is also a plus, but when you get together with this O.C. crowd I think laughter gets contagious.

Time for Dinner, Shall We?

Two of us ordered the Catch of The Day….Grouper, olives, sauce so perfectly seasoned.  As a side dish eggplant stuffed with risotto.

dscn6597

A Pasta Bolognese…please note the pastas are made in-house.

dscn6600

Involtini di Melanzane…Thinly sliced grilled eggplant rolled and stuffed with angel hair pasta with Marinara sauce and fresh parmigiano reggiano.  This is Kathlene’s favorite and once again she decided to order it.

dscn6601

Ross’s Pizza….It was a personal pizza but it was quite large.  Perfectly cooked…thin and crispy.

dscn6598

No dessert was necessary; we were totally satisfied…plus we needed to take off for Ocean Downs Racetrack and Casino where we were hoping to make some money, and enjoy more laughter and good times as Summer 2015 is coming to an end.

Have a good one!!

Ocean City, Maryland, Sahara Motel, Oceanfront, The Boardwalk, White Marlin Open, Longboard Cafe, Barn 34, 24 Hours In Ocean City, Summer 2015

dscn6417

They say that during summer week-ends Ocean City, Maryland hosts between 320,000 and 345,000 vacationers.  Up to 8 million visitors annually.  Businessman Isaac Coffin built the first beach-front cottage in 1869 in order to receive paying guests.  Guests would arrive by stage coach and ferry.  The idea was to fish off the shore, and to enjoy the beautiful and long strip of sandy beach.  As it happens, soon after, others followed his lead and built houses on the strip of sand.  Then the development came as businessmen were attracted to the area.  Two hundred and fifty lots were cut into it; a corporation was formed to help with the development of the land.  And, the corporation stock of 4,000 shares were sold for $25 each.  The rest is history.

dscn6350

There is plenty to do in Ocean City.  The beach is so wide and very clean.  Early in the a.m. already visitors choose their spots.  Umbrellas up and they are all good to go.

I was spending 24 hours in O.C. with my friend, Cindi.  She and I were going to enjoy some of the activities that visitors love in this coastal resort.  We were staying at the Sahara Motel.  Oceanfront at the Boardwalk’s edge.  The Sahara Motel is located at 19th St. and Boardwalk.  It does have a very popular Cafe open for breakfast and lunch.  Tels. 410-289-8101, 1-800-638-1600.  Website?  http://www.saharamotel.com.

The Sahara Motel is a sister motel to:  Beachmark Motel, Tides Motel, Executive Motel, and Empress Motel & Apartments.  You can choose oceanfront, oceanview, poolside, west or tower building.  To see the other motels, please visit http://www.bestmotels.com.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is 2 1/4 miles.  Early in the a.m. walkers, bikers, and joggers take the opportunity to exercise while having the best view in town.

Just remember to touch at the end of the boardwalk to make sure your walk counts.

dscn6419

Turning around we went off for another 2 1/4 miles.  The Boardwalk was waking up.

dscn6411

dscn6412

You can still find some of those cottages that make you say Oh, So Cute!!  On the Boardwalk!

dscn6418

If you get tired of walking the Boardwalk, hop on the tram.  $3/person one way, but there are other deals available if you are spending the week.  Please visit http://www/ocbound.com/boardwalk-tram.

dscn6351

The 42nd Annual White Marlin Open takes place this time of the year.  August 3 – 7.  It is the World’s Largest Billfish Tournament with a purse of about $3.8 million dollars.  This year there were 370 boasts registered.   One of the activities for spectators is to go every afternoon to the Harbourside Marina to attend the weigh-in from 4 p.m. until 9:15 p.m.  Balancing the tip of the scale can make you a winner of lots of money.    Harbourside Marina is at 14th St and the Bay.  It gets crowded.  You can shop because there are plenty of vendors and you can also have something to eat and a few drinks, as well.

dscn6354

dscn6365

dscn6356

I bought the 2015 T-shirts but then we found a gentleman wearing one from 1988 when the purse was only $50,000.

dscn6434

dscn6370

It was a beautiful evening with plenty of boats in the marina and some were already getting ready for the next day of fishing.

dscn6369

dscn6362

dscn6364

The waiting was over.  Only 5 boats went out on Tuesday because of the 10 foot seas.  Finally, one of the boats, The Mahi, came in with a tuna.  The weight was 19 1/2 lbs.  If it had been 20 lbs. it would have won $12,000.

dscn6373dscn6375

Friday, August 7th, is the last day.  If you want more info., please visit http://www.whitemarlinopen.com/info/for-spectators.

Late night dinner at Longboard Cafe located at 6701 Coastal Highway was a good choice.  They are open for lunch and dinner.  A casual atmosphere, you may eat outdoors on their deck or inside.  Tel. 443-664-5639.  Website?  http://www.longboardcafe.net.

dscn6388

We sat at the better where we were able to see a very fast and busy bartender doing his best to keep everyone very well hydrated.

dscn6378

Chris Button was entertaining the patrons and he was excellent.

dscn6380

A Grilled Caesar for Cindi and I…it was good and plenty for sharing.

dscn6381

Halibut Mediterranean style for me with tomatoes, artichoke hearts, capers, lemon, wine and garlic pan sauce.  Nice white fish with a mild flavor.  Fish comes in fresh every day.

dscn6383

Cindi’s Wild Caught Salmon Filet was also very good…teriyaki sriracha lacquer, field greens, avocado, roasted corn, grape tomato, and a balsamic drizzle.

dscn6382

No need for dessert…

Getting up at 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday to go to the inlet and wish all those boats good luck was tough.  But we did it.  Hundreds of boats went out on Wednesday.

dscn6420dscn6425

Mary Anne, Mike, and Michael….The Lawsons!! Great to chat with them and to see them doing so well.  Barn 34 is open year-round for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  It is casual…with a very friendly staff.

dscn6424

Cindi had The Beach Babe…Scramble eggs with sauteed onions, potato, red peppers, chorizo, stuffed into a flour tortilla, and topped with salsa and cheese.  Yum!!

dscn6427

I was sold the moment I heard that one of their specials was the Fried Green Tomatoes Benedict…..So delicious, the tomatoes perfectly cooked and seasoned.  Grits!!

dscn6429

It was time to head back to Rehoboth Beach….24 Hours in OC went by so quickly but that happens when you are in good company and having fun.  Until next time!!  Thanks Cindi!

Destination? The Grove Market, Bishopville, Maryland, Smokehouse, Restaurant, Review, Good Food? Will Travel!!

dscn6177

“Pull up a chair.  Take a taste.  Come join us.  Life is so endlessly delicious.”  ruth reichl

dscn6178

The Grove Market never changes, which is a good thing.  That’s why we love it!!  Located at 12402 St. Martins Neck Rd., Bishopville, Maryland, 21813  Tel. 410352-5055  The Grove Market is funky, small and you will not find another restaurant like it in Delmarva.  In the summer, it opens every day at 5 p.m.  Leslie is the owner.  Her brother, Patrick helps.  But, tonight Lisa was taking care of us.  Please note that there are no credit cards accepted so bring cash or a check.

How to make a reservation.  It can be tricky.  That’s for sure.  When you call to make a reservation make sure you have a few dates available and times.  If you have to leave a message do so and be specific.  Leslie will call you back and either she will say yes or you might have to pick another day or another time.

The Grove Market is small.  I think about 7 tables and maybe a couple of stools at the bar.  This restaurant is very popular.

At the helm of the tiny kitchen is John McDonald.  John is from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and he is a well known chef and wine connoisseur.  He makes his ingredients come alive and your taste buds will immediately start dancing.

There is an extensive wine list.  No written menu; everything is recited from memory.  Their menu changes practically every day.

Seated in the back porch with only 3 tables we were chatty with our fellow diners. Not enough time to write the description of our dishes…but take a look at the photos.

Drinks and the appetizers followed:

I only wanted a small wine cup.  That’s what I got.

dscn6181

Crabmeat Remick

dscn6183

Fried Green Tomatoes topped with shrimp.  I have a thing for this dish.  I will order Fried Green Tomatoes in every restaurant that serves them.  These were superb.

dscn6184

Our table full of Roasted Ducks.  This is the most amazing entree.  One of their most popular.  It is a Delaware duck, roasted to perfection with a semi sweet sauce, accompanied with chutney.

dscn6190

dscn6193

Our Roasted Duck came with the side dish of the Grove Market’s Mash Potatoes and their famous breadstick, which is made out of the dough that was in the pizza recipe when many years ago pizza was served.

dscn6191

Well, I needed more photos of the entrees that Lisa had so perfectly recited.  Here is where our fellow diners come into play.  Could I take photos of your food?  I have a blog with photos.  They were great and immediately caught on to the fact that they could not touch their food until I had taken the pictures.  Thanks so much for being so gracious.  This is what our Maryland diners had for dinner.  By the way, they are repeat customers.

And, if you like chocolate….then, the Chocolate Silk Pie should be ordered.

dscn6197

Sharing a meal with friends is always priceless…the chat, the laughs and the friendship.  Cannot wait to go back!

Note:  The Grove Market is also a smoke house so when there is smoked fish for an appetizer you might want to order it.

Gates have opened and visitors have been arriving since Thursday evening.  A beautiful day in Delmarva with blue skies, slightly cool temperatures, and no humidity….So perfect and hard to believe that there is no rain in the forecast for Memorial Day!!

Boardwalks are the center of the coastal towns of Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Ocean City, Maryland.  Early in the a.m. joggers, bikers, walkers….pooches too, are seen enjoying glorious days at the beach.

Hard to believe that the 3 mile long Ocean City Boardwalk, was once rolled up and stored under porches during high tide.  Please visit http://www.ococean.com.

Stop by Dolles for some amazing Sea Salt fudge…love it…among other sweet sensations.  Every morsel is made in-house.

Summer in Bethany Beach, Delaware, revolves around the Boardwalk.  This boardwalk is not as long as the other two, but offers so much to its visitors….entertainment or just the fact that you can take a seat on those iconic benches and look out to the Atlantic Ocean.  Please visit http://www.townofbethanybeach.com.

dscn9779

dscn9775

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, is also known as The Nation’s Summer Capital.  The award-winning Boardwalk is a mile long.  Just make sure that when you get to the end on both sides of the boardwalk you touch the railing….it’s a local’s thing.  The entertainment begins on the Boardwalk every week.  Check http://www.rehobothbandstand.com

Lucky for the coastal towns that do have boardwalks.  They are successful commercial districts and tourist attractions for the whole family.

“Fundraising is the gentle art of teaching the joy of giving.”  hank rosso

With that in mind I headed south from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, to meet my friends, Cindi and Ross, for a night of fundraising in Ocean City, Maryland.

dscn4564

It is so interesting to see this town at this time of the year.  It is so quiet, but not for long.  Beachgoers will be here soon enough and they will be creating their memories at the beach.  This most southern part of Downtown Ocean City is where Trimper Rides is located.  It was just featured in Strange Inheritances.  Trimper Rides is a family owned and operated business located in prime real estate in O.C.  Not to see the lights and the laughing and screaming visitors is a sight to be seen.

dscn4563

For a few years…I will call them, the movers and shakers in Ocean City, Maryland, have been diligently fundraising for a much needed hospice facility in the area.  Together they are building the funds in order for construction to begin.  They need $5,000,000.  Already they have $3,000,000 thanks to the generosity of all in the communities.

dscn4613

“Hospice patients most often choose to remain at home.  However, a growing number find that at the end of life they are unable to manage alone or need more than a frail spouse can provide.  Suddenly, home is no longer the safest place to receive hospice care.”  Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will serve the Lower Shore region.  For more information, please visit http://www.coastalhospice.org.  Or, please call Maureen McNeill, the Director of Development at 410-641-5481.

dscn4565

dscn4566

Unreal to see the award winning Boardwalk this quiet!!  Inside Harrison’s Harbor Watch the mood was anything but quiet.  It was a festive event with about 225 in attendance.

dscn4607

Harrison’s Habor Watch is located at 806 S. Atlantic Ave., overlooking the Inlet and Assateague Island.  This is the southern end of the Boardwalk.

Having fun while raising funds…the main focus of the evening.  Blindly choosing a bottle of wine…$20.  Raffles!

The live entertainment was by Lauren Glick and Mike Armstrong.

Seventeen of Ocean City’s restaurants brought their “A” dishes to this event.  Each station was paired with a unique wine complementing the food.

dscn4616

Oysters to start with were from Harrison’s Harbor Watch.  Plump, salty and cold!! We are by the water so having them to start our evening was a no brainer.

dscn4571

Sushi from OC Wasabi.  This was a popular station, to say the least.

dscn4573

My love affair with Fried Green Tomatoes continues.  Having these ones from Sunset Grille, topped with Crab Remoulade, well, what can I say….awesome!!

They had just brought out the warm crab dip from Crabs to Go…paired with a light Prosecco.

dscn4580

One of my favorite tapas of the evening….Embers/Blu Tuna Tartare Tacos, and, Smoked Salmon Napoleon.  The tuna, the lime, the cilantro and the presentation…great.

Touch of Italy has been in Ocean City for the past year.  Love that they always take their time to teach their customers about what they offer.

dscn4599

Spring Lamb from the Atlantic Hotel in Berlin.  I like mint sauce vs. mint jelly, though.  Very good indeed.

dscn4604

dscn4603

I usually do not eat eggs for breakfast, but deviled eggs are a different thing altogether.  These were Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs!!  The Cucumber Cups with Spicy Crab Dip….can’t wait for summer.  This was presented by Seacrets!
