Destination? Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, At The Water’s Edge, Delaware Beaches, Coastal Delaware, Sussex County, Southern Delaware

On a day like today, I was walking the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  The Boardwalk is an award winning one.  Walking right along the Atlantic Ocean.  It was somewhat cool, it was already fall.  Some were on the beach, playing.  Kids never get cold; they just run around loving a day at the beach.

Then, at the water’s edge there were a group of people, mingling along with others trying to feel how cold the water was.  The group attracted my attention.  And, I took my camera out.


I started to get closer.  The family was Amish.  The Amish community closest to us is in the Dover area, or Kent County, about 40 minutes north of Rehoboth Beach.  I got a little closer still.  There were 2 other people taking photos, but I think they were just taking in the scenery.


Then I stood pretty close, but giving them their privacy.  Standing at the water’s edge, watching the waves roll in.  A serenity of sorts.  A penny for their thoughts.  It is one of my favorite photos.


Have a great day!!

Rehoboth Beach, Boardwalk, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE Beaches, Mecca for Summer Leisure Fun, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


It was built in 1873.  Through the years, it has changed.  But, one thing that never does change is the fact that from the beginning it was a place to embrace the seacoast and a “mecca” for summer leisure fun acitivites.


It is right in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, with the background…the Atlantic Ocean.  Plenty to eat at the Boardwalk.  You never forget the aroma of French fries, and all that Boardwalk grub.


The benches are iconic and were donated by the Village Improvement Association of Rehoboth Beach.  The perfect place for people watching.


It was gorgeous this Memorial Week-End.  One of the few when the weather participated every single day.  You never know who you are going to meet on the Boardwalk.  Casual chatting….Jody and I met Titan’s handler.  Titan was only 16 months old and in training to become a therapy dog at hospitals with patients with anxieties….Loved it!!



It does not matter if you look north or south on the Boardwalk…..the views are priceless!


NOTE:  Need Beach Wheels?  They are available from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. through Labor Day.  They are located at Maryland Ave. and The Boardwalk and Laurel Street & The Boardwalk.  They are right on the beach.  Please remember that they cannot be removed from the beach.

No rental fee; first come first serve basis.
