    Ocean City continues to grow, and has pulled Somers Point into the loop, as evidenced by the more than 900 people who braved the chilly, windy early morning weather to run, jog or stroll across the Route 52 causeway (Ninth Street Bridge) from Ocean City to Somers Point today. Walkers had the advantage of being able to look down on the remains of the old Ninth St. Bridge, look at the second span of the new bridge under construction, and preview the locations of the new visitor center, fishing pier and bike path ramps. 

    Over in Somers Point, the race finished at Kennedy Park along the bay, and many entrants found their way to the Point Diner and other stopping points for a hot breakfast before heading back.  The views from the bridge on the Ocean City side are wonderful and much better on foot than at 35 mph in a car.  I predict that the bike/walk path will be well used once open next year.  Also, there is some discussion about having through bicyclists ride on the traffic shoulder as they do on the other new bridges, which will leave the protected path for slower riders and walkers.

    There is something going on in Ocean City almost every week year round, so come and visit!
