Monday Specials at the Maritime Market - 07/16
Good Morning Fellow Islanders!
It's 77 degrees 'on the front porch this morning, and the air is heavy,
still, and fragrant with the scents of the sea, as a layer of gray clouds
blanket the pre-dawn sky, with the remnants of a quick spit of rain adding
a glaze of humidity. The radar is showing a multitude of small cells
materializing - and then vaporizing as they slowly migrate north from the
sea. We'll likely miss most of these today, but their denisity will
increase toward dusk, and we then settle into several days of periodic
showers or thunderstorms. We'll warm to the mid 80's today, with mostly
calm winds and partly sunny skies through the early afternoon, and
increasing clouds tonight. For the remainder of the week, expect scattered
showers or thunderstorms, with daytime highs in the mid 80's and overnight
lows near 80. High tide will peak at about 11:15 this morning, and low
tide will occur around 5:15 this afternoon.
For breakfast this morning, Chef Radar is featuring his famous "crunch
wrap" - a flour tortilla loaded with scrambled eggs, cheese and sausage,
then folded and grilled to a crispy crunch for only $8.95. For lunch
today, Radar is presenting grilled chicken Kebobs with a tabouleh salsa for
only $10.95. Order any item from our regular menu on-line
at www.maritimetogo.com, and your order will be ready when you arrive.
