See photos of the Memorial Day Flag Celebration on the beach here. My little corner of the hospitality industry in Ocean City, Maryland,  was crowded and busy for Memorial Day weekend 2012.

Memorial Day Weekend 2012

May 23, 2012


Once again, the summer season begins in Ocean City, Maryland. All things are possible. Cruising OC weekend was spectacular, thanks to perfect sunny weather on Saturday.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen the town packed so tight on the third weekend in May.

Happy and Thankful Memorial Day Weekend, Ocean City, MD

May 30, 2010


Here we have two crowd-pleasing statues on the Ocean City Boardwalk. People stop to photograph the soldier, who’s standing at attention with an American flag, and Ms. Liberty, holding a small bouquet of flowers.  They’re standing maybe 50 feet apart on the Boardwalk at North Division Street, very near the statues at the Firefighters memorial.

Ocean City Ready for Memorial Day Weekend

May 21, 2009


Wednesday, mid-week before Memorial Day Weekend, was a perfect May day in Ocean City, Maryland — warm, sunny, and lazy. The Boardwalk is open for business, everyone wearing shorts and short-sleeves. It was warm enough for the beach on Wednesday, but only a handful of sunbathers on the sand. The sun was bright and hot […]
