I am thinking about you, Delray.  Another dusting of snow is about to reach us here, at the Delaware beaches.  Well, it’s winter.  What can we expect? 

That Village by the Sea that I enjoy visiting so much is now at the height of its season.  That town knows how to show its visitors a good time.  Therefore, here is what’s in store for you if you are there, swimming, dining al fresco, walking, shopping, biking, not wearing coats or boots; just listening to the ruffle of the palm trees.
