Bethany Beach

Gorgeous color photos, paintings, and drawings clearly illustrate the sights and smells of this pretty seaside town.  Bring home this unique reminder of a wonderful place, or give as a gift to lift someone’s spirits. Cheery and bright as a summer’s day!

ABOUT THIS BOOK

This is the third in a series of ABC books by Joanne K. Guilfoil about places on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Bethany’s coastal history, nature and local art together provide a unique view of this beach town. A glossary defines terms in this book.

Colorful photographs are used to illustrate the people, parades, flowers, food, and fun! They are all portrayed half in living color and half as line drawings “to color”, or as young ones do, scribble. All these things found in Bethany are here for you to see, color and take home!

ABOUT THIS BOOK

This ABC book is all about Ocean City, Maryland and its only city on the Atlantic Ocean. Once known as a “ladies resort” with hotels first built and managed by women, Ocean City has served many purposes from a seaside resort, to fishing mecca, amusement parks, and convention centers. It is still a fun place to surf, swim, see a show, have a great meal and just plain have fun, especially on the boardwalk!
