We visited the beach house yesterday afternoon. Since the weather was yucky in the Philly area, we were happy to see the sun when we got there.

What's offered at the Music Pier this week? How about a John Phillips Sousa concert by the Ocean City Pops? It's on July 2nd at 7:30 PM. $10 and $15 tickets are available. On July 4th, the Ocean City Pops will have an "All Patriotic Salute" at 7:30 PM. Prices are the same. Remember The Duprees (Two Different Worlds, You Belong to Me)? They'll be performing on July 6th with the Ocean City Pops. Tickets are $20.

There are lots of contests in Ocean City this week including taffy sculpting and treasure hunts. Call 609-525-9300 for a schedule of events.
