    How upsetting; here I was in Bethany Beach and you did not include any activities, so I had no alternative but to go to the beach.

    Hi Steve: There were events going on this past week-end in Bethany, at the Bandstand, and I posted them, but I am still trying to find out what is going on this coming week in Bethany. If you find anything, please let me know and if I find something new I will add it to the post. But, going to the beach is, definitely, a good alternative. See you, Gloria
