After work today I drove down to Ocean City to meet Stevie on the beach where she'd spent the day surfing. While she finished up I went on a 5 mile sunset run along the beach and boardwalk.
What a contrast to the shore that I'm so familiar with from just a few weeks ago. The heat and crowds are gone, resulting in a more relaxed, less hectic atmosphere.
We had dinner on the boardwalk, then played a few games at an arcade, then strolled the beach by moonlight. As tired as I usually am on Friday nights, this was still an exceptional date night down the shore.
