Just a day of bike riding, catching up on bills and lazing about. Kind of nice!
The name Onancock derives from the Indians word that means “foggy place”. The town was chartered in 1680 and was once the home of Francis Makemie, the father of American Presbyterianism. It is a fairly placid place; a few small fishing boats heading out, locals gathering to chat at the “Liars Bench”, graceful homes lining its avenues and brilliant azaleas still blooming. There is a hardware store, a bakery, a convenience/gas store and a few small restaurants but you have to travel farther for most things.75
