Charging stations at Holiday Inn
It was announced this week that there would be places to charge your electric car (should you have one) in Ocean City. This isn’t just huge from a sustainability standpoint, but from a tourism one as well. People who have electric cars keep very close track of where they can fuel up. It’s that much easier to entice people to come to the beach now.

Of particular interest tonight will be the big opening at the Patrick Henry Art Gallery and the book signing at Salt Water Media featuring Scottish author Robert Lewis Heron.

By sprinkling a dry sense of humor throughout his writing, he makes the harshness a wee bit more palatable. Expect the unexpected on entering his world of woe and wonderment.
