Another Cold Day in Ocean City, Maryland

Cold Walk On The BoardsA couple enjoys a walk on the boardwalk, as snow from winter storm Janus clings to the shadows.

 

When the cold and snow hit Ocean City I'm usually pretty content to watch it from the comfort of my family room window. For the most part, the snow from winter storm Janus has melted away, so when my son asked if I'd let him drive us to the Ocean Bowl Skatepark, I saw it as an opportunity to come out of hibernation (if only for a few moments).

The snow had mostly receded, but some of it was still clinging to life in shadows, and drifts. I was quite surprised by the number of people that were actually on the boardwalk. The downtown arcades were open, and of course there was the ever-present line of customers lined up to get their Thrasher's-French-Fries fix.

It was a bit colder than I had anticipated (or dressed for), so I limited my walk from the Inlet to the north-side of the pier. That's quite enough for me, thank you very much. This is how things looked to me. Enjoy!
