Here I was, sitting on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland with 3 girls I went to college with. We're in our later 40s now...we started going to the beach together over 18 years ago. As I walked onto the beach with Julie and Jeannie today I remarked, "I don't think we've been on the beach together in at least 15 years." It was surprising to us all, but it was true...we had not sat on the sand together in quite some time.
It was a great afternoon. The water temperature was perfect, a little chilly but refreshing.
The evening was capped off by dinner at a great place. The Grove Market has all of about 8 tables. Getting a table tonight was some sort of miracle. It's the kind of place that has no menu; the waitress just lets you know what the chef has decided to cook for the evening. For us it was smoked fish appetizers, crab salad, flounder duck, scallops and grouper. All of it was topped off with a bit of wine and for dessert, some kind of awesome coconut cake.
It was all good, made even better with good friends.
