Exhibit: Just Skimming the Surface

Sometimes we just barely scratch the surface, but here in Delaware, we SKIM or occasionally surf the surface. Rehoboth Museum will host its current exhibit, "Skimming the Surface: Surfing, Skimming, and Floating off the Delaware Coast," well through the end of the summer. This little gem located at the edge of downtown is perfect for a midday reprieve from the sun...unless you're floating of course.

Gallery Information: Monday-Friday 10-4, Saturday and Sunday 11-3.

511 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Admission rates are $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and active duty military, $2 for young adults 13 to 17. Children 12 and younger are free, and receive a free gift.

TIP: This Saturday, August 13th, the museum will be hosting its 3rd annual Watermelon Festival, complete with seed spitting and eating contests. The event will take place from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. at the museum and Grove Park.

Man vs. Fish: The White Marlin Open

Welcome to the 38th annual White Marlin Open, the largest bill fish tournament held each year right here in Ocean City, Maryland, the white marlin capital of the world. This is a very serious competition... Forget the fishing derby you won as a kid with an earthworm. These guys are using the fish you caught as bait. Admittedly I kind of wondered what all the hype was about.

Welllll when the first boat pulled into the weigh station yesterday, the "Playmate" from right out of the tournaments hometown, they unloaded a 45-pound tuna. I was duly impressed, but my curiosity was piqued when the fish was disqualified for coming in 5-pounds under the minimum for the entire competition. Slowly I started to get the idea. This fish was kiddie sized.

One of the crew members on the boat said, "This is the baby brother of the other tuna we have on deck." The crowds anticipation came alive as the officials set to work offloading what we were about to find out was a 241-pound behemoth! Just take a moment to consider just how big that is. That fish outweighs me. And tuna is one of the smaller fish that they're actually going for. The record for the competition was a 15 foot blue marlin that weighed in at 1,062-pounds. That's 5 of me!

The angler, Dale Christensen fought that fish for close to an hour armed with a fishing rod and a hook to get it into the boat. Unbelievable! And I wasn't the only one who thought so as the crowd became jubilant. So do yourself a favor. The competition runs through Friday, August 12th. Go down to 14th street in Ocean City on the bay side between 5 & 7 p.m. and see what they caught that day and join the crowd in cheering these guys on. 'Cause you need to see a fish that weighs more than you do too.

Assateague And It's Hidden Treasures

Assateague National Seashore is a gem. It's 37 miles of coastal barrier island that's pristine undeveloped wilderness. There's miles of empty shoreline on the ocean side and hundreds of coves and inlets on the bay side. All that open space gives the local animals plenty of room to set up shop. One of them, the wild pony, is unique to the island. Take your family, spend at least a day if not a week, and see what the park has to offer. Make sure to check out the brand new visitors center and the Rackliffe House. Tours of the house are available on Thursdays through October from 1-4p.m.

TIP: If you plan in advance, you can camp!
