The Lewes Auto Mall detail shop revives the fresh-from-the-lot condition of soiled automobiles with its squad of four experienced detail gurus. Pull in to one of the vehicular beauty stalls for the thorough swabbings and revitalizing upgrades of one of the detail packages or a specific service; prices vary by size and age of the road racer, and any extreme conditions, such as excessive pet residue or evidence of grape-juice battles. The express clean covers all of the basic hygienic necessities, starting with a thorough hand scrubbing of the exterior, wheels and tires, a blow-dry, and a wipe down with a gentle microfiber caress ($30.95 for medium-size cars). Wheels are brightened, tires are shined, and all mirrors and glass surfaces, inside and out, are squeegeed for maximum reflectiveness. The meticulous minutia cleaner then attacks the interior, vacuuming up muffin crumbs and toweling off milkshake splatters on the dash. Or step up to the mini detail package, which encompasses all of the services of the express clean, plus a coat of protective sealant, an upholstery and carpet shampoo, leather and vinyl conditioning, and more ($40 for medium-size cars).
With more than 60,000 flights and an impressive safety record, Highland Aerosports' buoyant bodies safely traverse through the skies at altitudes up to 2,500 feet during tandem intro-to-hang-gliding flights. Gliding gurus draw from their 13+ years of experience to guide new aeronauts through the basics, learning hang gliding's procedures and controls. After an ultra-light airplane tows the aerial apparatus into the sky, airborne students steer over the Maryland scenery for 12–15 minutes, hopping through clouds and over Cupid's aerial archery shop until descending to 300 feet, where the instructor will bring the glider to a safe landing. During the soaring session, a photographer snaps approximately 20 images of winged escapades, compiling candid moments onto a 1GB memory card to take with you.
