HaHa’s Frozen Yogurt, The Village of Fenwick, Fenwick Island, Delaware… Self-Serve, Delicious, Healthy Frozen Yogurt, See Them Next Season, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn5772

Say it isn’t so…I just discovered Haha’s Frozen Yogurt, when my friend, Shelley, told me that today, Sunday was their last day until next April.  As is HaHa’s tradition, on their last day of the season, they offer free frozen yogurt. You may also want to give a contribution…all for the Delaware Food Bank.

Haha’s Frozen Yogurt is located at The Village of Fenwick at 300 Coastal Highway, Fenwick Island, Delaware, on the block of Coastal Highway and Rt. 54.  Tel. 302-581-0039.  Website?  http://www.hahasfrozenyogurt.com.

I started my evening with dessert followed by dinner.  I had no choice , this was their last night…poor me.   I had a hefty cup of frozen yogurt with Peanut Butter, Irish Mint, Classic Chocolate, Red Velvet Cake and Tropical Tart. The yogurt had well defined flavors.  Some were non fat, low fat, gluten free, or no sugar.  They also have a non-dairy sorbet.   I can honestly tell you that they ranked way on top of my favorites.  This is not a franchise.

You can serve yourself as much as you want, followed by plenty of toppings.  My choice is usually plain.  I choose to taste the true flavors one by one.

So, now you know…Opening next April!!  Have a good One!!

Destination? Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, The Second Season, Pumpkins, Gourds, Jams, Tomato Sunshine, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn5713

I can see why there is so much traffic when the height of the season is long gone!!  The Second Season at the Delaware Beaches brings gorgeous weather, restaurant specials, events, and no parking meters!!

dscn5717

dscn5716

Today is another one of those days, just like yesterday when I took off for the north side of the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk.  It was about 8:30 a.m. and I was meeting Alice.  A few were already getting ready for a relaxing morning of fishing; others were walking the Boardwalk.  The Boardwalk is one mile long each way.  This is an award winning Boardwalk, originally built in 1873!!   It is the perfect place to renew in the a.m…..the salt air, the ocean breezes, and good company.  Locals touch each end of the Boardwalk to make sure they have accomplished their walk.

dscn5715

A weekly stop at Tomato Sunshine is a favorite, as well.  At this time of the year,…”produce great pumpkins, the pies will follow later.”  The seasons bring so many colorful changes to Tomato Sunshine.  It is located at 19791 Coastal Highway.  If you are leaving Rehoboth Beach, you will see it on your right.  If you are coming into Rehoboth, it will be on your left.  They are open, at this time of the year, Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Tel. 302-226-2533.  Website?  http://www.tomatosunshine.com.

They have jams, fruit, vegetables, and fresh bread, besides all the pumpkins, as well.

dscn5744dscn5745

Tomato Sunshine is ready for Fall.  Check out what they have, don’t miss it.  It is a happy place!!  So, if you are looking for a specific type of pumpkin…go no further.  Ernie might even tell you how to cook some of them.

Rehoboth Beach Eats, Semra’s, Mediterranean Grill, Middle Eastern Veggies, Lamb, Chicken, Grains, Homemade Yogurt, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches…Lovers of Homemade & Robust Foods, Fresh Ingredients, Sophisticated Combinations

dscn5692

Semra grew up in Turkey, and John, her husband, is Turkish but grew up in the United States.  Together they have Semra’s Mediterranean Grill located at 19 Rehoboth Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, just steps off the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk.  Tel. 302-226-4976.  Website? http://www.semras.com.

John will be the first one to tell you that he is just a helper, that Semra does all the cooking.  Soft spoken and very happy to see that the restaurant that they started not too long ago is prospering and becoming a favorite or many locals and visitors alike.

A counter for take out is right by the door, then a more casual dining area for eating.  Their formal dining room is being remodeled and a bar is being added to the casual dining room, as well.

dscn5691

My friend, Chris, and I decided that an early dinner in Rehoboth Beach would be the thing to do on Sunday evening.  We chose Semra’s and glad we did.  This was not my first time at Semra’s.  This restaurant participates in the Eating Rehoboth food tours.  More info?  Check http://www.eatingrehoboth.com.

Semra showed us our booth and looking at the menu I could not make up my mind.

dscn5684

Chris had the Lamb Shish Kabob, which had one skewer of char-grilled marinated lamb cubes served over a salad.  Chris said the salad was great with a delicious dressing.

dscn5685

I had the Grilled Kofte which had patties of char-grilled lamb and beef with Turkish herbs and spices served over rice, yogurt, pita bread and veggies.

dscn5689

My patties were very moist.  Semra mentioned that the combination is mostly lamb with maybe 20% beef.

Semra’s family sends her red crushed pepper from Turkey.  You would think it would be so spicy but it wasn’t.  It actually added a mild kick to the food.  Very good.

dscn5690

The food was so fresh and settled perfectly.  We were comfortably satisfied.

Check their website or Facebook Page.  Entertainment at Semra’s includes belly dancing.  They will be putting those event as dates become available.

Have a good One!!

Seagate Beach Club, Delray Beach, Florida, Room With A View, The Village by The Sea, Palm Beach County, South Florida

dscn5660

If you are planning a vacation to Delray Beach, Florida, and choose to stay at the Seagate Hotel on Atlantic Avenue, you will be able to have privileges at the Seagate Beach Club, located at 401 South Ocean Blvd.  For many years the Seagate Beach Club was all members, but since the opening of the Seagate Hotel, guests can sit on its private beach, and enjoy the many amenities the club has to offer.

dscn5604

Enjoying an evening at the Seagate with friends, Michael and Jeff, was special on Friday evening.  Catching up with them after not seeing them for some time.  Since it is a private club, I extended the patrons the opportunity to dine in complete privacy, so therefore, only a few photos of the evening you will see.

A room with a view is the place to be if you are seated on the balcony.

dscn5596

The bread was excellent!!  And what followed were salads, beets, calamari, several types of beef and a pork ragu with gnocchi….chocolate cake, ice cream and key lime pie!  Yum!

dscn5597

And, then, some ventured outdoors to catch one of the movies under the moonlight!!

dscn5594

Talk to you later….have a good one!
