101 Answers to Your Prayers:
Summers Here. Now All You Have to Do Is Enjoy It
Schools out and the kids want to know what theyre going to do now. If you dont come up with something good, and quick, theyll whine and watch television all summer long.
Company is coming from out of town. They all want to know what youve got planned for them. And no, pot luck wont do. Dad wants to go people watching; Cousin Albro loves a military band; Uncle Max cant get it into his head that you dont live on the ocean. Mom wont be happy until she goes fishing; Little Sister Sue has just got to see a midshipman; Aunt Florries nuts about history. And every one of them wants to eat blue crabs.
Its a good thing Bay Weekly has all the answers. Tucked inside this weeks regular edition where youll once again find all the good things youve come to expect each week is our annual special 101 Ways to Have Fun: An Indispensable Guide to Summer on the Bay.
Here, handily sized to go with you all summer long, is an anthology of places to go and things to do. Before the jellyfish take over the Bay (youll read about them in this weeks regular issue) start off summer by taking the kids to Discover a Bay Beach, to turn themselves into Bay creatures. After theyve gotten wet and sandy, theyll want to Search the Tidelines to discover Bay treasures. Be sure each brings home a favorite piece of driftwood, so theyll be ready to Paint Driftwood Creatures, when they want to know what to do tomorrow.
These are just a couple of our 20 Ways dedicated to Not Just for Kids. Theyre marked NJFK to let you now that you can join in, too. After all, why should kids have all the fun?
They wont, when youve got 101 Ways to guide you. Youll find military bands to satisfy Cousin Albro most nights of the week. While hes marching to the beat, Dad can sit back and watch the people. Meanwhile, Uncle Max can plan his daytrip to the ocean but before he starts out, make sure he reads Find Out Where in the World You Are and Enlarge Your World.
Mom will find directions to her fish in Go Fish; Charter a Fishing Trip; and You Dont Need a Boat to Go Fishing. Shell know the advice is good, because it comes to her from our own Old Man of the Bay, Bill Burton. Sister Sue need only read on to see where and when to See a Plebe Summer Parade at the Naval Academy. And Aunt Florrie can not only see history with Tour the Historic Sites You Pass Every Day but Dig History.
101 Ways isnt done with your summer yet. Its not only a guide to the culture and opportunities of Chesapeake Country but an all-summer-long calendar. So when you want to know where you can celebrate July 4 under the rockets red glare, you need look no further.
The only thing our Summer Guide cant do to improve your summer is tell you where to find another copy if you lose this one. Because while 101 Ways will last you all summer long, it comes to you only once: this week. So seize the issue.
