Wow! August is almost upon us. It is time to make the rest of summer count. Hope that you have been enjoying the beach, the sun and all that Delmarva has to offer. This week so far has been gorgeous. If you were lucky enough to be down on the Virginia side of Delmarva earlier in the week, you could have seen the pony swim. We had to work. Que the sigh. Next year, we will plan ahead. It is probably just as well. My daughter would have wanted to adopt one of the ponies. But enough of that, this is what is going on this coming weekend on Delmarva.
