Dewey Beach, The Hustler Club & My Thai in Baltimore

May 21, 2014
   Spent a couple days off the grid in Dewey Beach, Delaware right on the Atlantic Ocean. Drove through the capitol of Dover on Sunday. Stopped for gas then found a great little place called The Governor's Cafe in an old house. Believe it or not, had coffee and B-52 shots:

Landed in Dewey, Delaware at about three. Kathy rented us an upstairs funky apartment space right on the beach:

Walked on the beach, sketched, made notes for a new project, solved life, played cards and ate good food at Fin's Seafood and Raw Bar in Rehoboth Beach and The Starboard in Dewey Beach. Left this morning at ten and traveled down the coast to Ocean Beach, also in Delaware and walked the boardwalk and posed on the pier:

Had lunch a Seacrets, right on the water, then drove back to Baltimore via Annapolis. Landed back at Tommy's apartment in the city. And decided to go out for Thai noodles at about six:

Fought our way through The Block, which is a notorious skin bar area right next to the police station:

Landed at My Thai Restaurant on Central Ave.

Tommy puts in parking meter fees while the girls run for a table in the rain.

Long day traveling but got back to T's place at about 8:30. Thinking of going to Gettysburg tomorrow.
