I will not be attending the 2012 Clam Bake. I will be packing up the car and heading to Ocean City, Maryland to enjoy a cool day and evening by the beach, complimented by a live concert, one of many to be held in Ocean City. Call 800.626.2326. Concert dates: July 11, 18, 25. Call for August dates. Nothing like live music by the shore, except maybe a sea-breeze on those hot July days.

What are you doing July 15? If you are not at Somers Cove Marina in Crisfield enjoying all you can eat crabs, clams, steamed corn, oysters (raw, steamed or fried), fried fish, french fries, beer, and watermelon, you are missing out on one of the biggest events in the State of Maryland.
Every year, for 33 years, seafood lovers and politicians have been gathering at Somers Cove marina to dine on the best our bay has to offer, and to talk politics. For one day out of the year, our little town plays host to politicians from all over the state, voters, lobbyists, and people who travel from faraway states just to partake of the scrumptious flavors of the Chesapeake.
The price for the all you can eat and drink gala is only $40.00, and you get your own crab mallet and beer drinking jar. Whoo hoo!
No matter what your political affiliation, this is without a doubt a summer, "Must-do." So take a ride in you car, boat, or hop a plane and make it on over our way. While you are here, make a week of it and enjoy the scenic beauty of Crisfield.
Tickets are limited to 6,000 so you need to call the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce at 410.968.2500. You can find out more by clicking on their link on the sidebar.
Here are a few photos I took last year. Hope to see you there.
And just who is J. Millard Tawes? He was born in Crisfield in 1894, and was elected Governor of Maryland in 1958, becoming the 59th governor of our state.
Oh, some of you may want to comment on the stickers some of people are wearing. I picked these photos at random. This is not a political blog. But you can wear your very own sticker to support your candidate on July 15! Who knows? I may randomly pick you to photograph this year. Whoo hoo! Let the "party" begin.
