Gov. Larry Hogan has ordered Marylanders to stay at home beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, March 30. You've likely already been at home for a while, so maybe you're looking for something new to try.
Here are a few Eastern Shore-inspired ideas. Feel free to share your ideas with us, too!
1. Relax with a coloring page. We've created some Wicomico County coloring pages: crabs, flowers, a peacock (at the Salisbury Zoo) and a boat scene. Print a few copies so you and your family can enjoy them.
The coloring pages were all created from photos that have been submitted to our photo contest. Photographers of the original photographs, respectively, are Heather Edwards, Addie Mister, John Blough and Ruth Ann Workman. Download the coloring pages on Facebook or through this Box link.
3. Make an Eastern Shore recipe. Try cooking or baking something new — you can switch things up while feeding yourself and your family. Limit supermarket trips and don't go out to the store unless you need to. Add anything you need for your recipe to the shopping list, and next time you're at the store for your necessities, pick those items up. One place to start for recipe ideas is Maryland's Buy Local Cookout recipe books, which are available to view for free here.
4. Watch a movie filmed on the Eastern Shore. We aren't aware of any movies filmed in Wicomico County, but ShoreBread has published a list of movies filmed on Delmarva. Check out the list, stream one of them and see if you recognize
any familiar spots. The article was published three years ago, so some of the streaming information has changed since then. Although libraries are
closed, we checked the Hoopla app, which is free with a library card, and found
"Ping Pong Summer" and "Failure to Launch" available to stream for free through the app.
By staying at home, you are helping our community — thank you!
