Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Sunny Skies…..Out & About, Pasqualini’s Bakery, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches

The term “relax, slow down; you are at the beach” was the right thing to say on this Sunday morning in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

On t.v. early this morning I saw snow in Philadelphia, Maryland and D.C.  Then, I noticed that Florida was also a bit chilly.  I decided to check the beach in downtown Rehoboth Beach.  Sunday mornings are quiet, especially at this time of the year.  So, out and about I went.

dscn0824

I think 36 degrees was the weather around 8:30 a.m.  I was not complaining.  The beach looked gorgeous.  I never get tired of these views.  The photos were taken on the northern edge of the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk.

The WWII towers are my favorites and they looked beautiful this morning…a few walkers enjoying one awesome morning.

dscn1328

I woke up so early and rushed out to see if I could get a glimpse of a sunrise on the last day of the year.  Too cloudy; oh well. 

I decided then that a visit to the downtown Rehoboth Beach bakeries would be the thing to do.  Come New Year’s Day full of 2012 resolutions that will go out the window the moment you see what the bakeries will have; sticky buns, danish, muffins, cupcakes, donuts, breads….wash it down with a cup of coffee; I like it bold, not regular.

 

dscn1327

The Bake Shoppe is located at 222 Rehoboth Avenue.  Tel. 302-226-0176.  It will open at 6:30 a.m.  This bakery has been in Rehoboth Beach for so many years.  They are known for their traditional Polish Babkas.  The pictures do not lie; check them out and start drooling.

Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market, Rehoboth Beach, Vendors, Delaware Beaches, 5th Season, Tuesdays, Noon – 4:00 p.m., Rain or Shine, Delaware Beaches

 

img_3660

I strolled yesterday, just like everyone else through the tent lined street in Grove Park.  This is the home for the Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market who is celebrating its 5th season.  And, every Tuesday, rain or shine, from Noon until 4:00 p.m. you will find the locals, residents and visitors purchasing, organic produce, food, flowers, baked goods and at times live entertainment, as well.  On a beautiful day like yesterday, it was priceless.

Grove Park is a wooded corner in Rehoboth that is located adjacent to the Lighthouse Circle, right by the roundabout.  It has a Tot Lot and benches to sit and rest or get a little shade when the summer weather heats up.

The Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market has a website; http://www.rbfarmersmarket.com.  

There is free parking available on Henlopen Avenue, Columbia Avenue and Sussex St. and Felton Street.  Otherwise, you will have to feed the meter in a few weeks.

This is the second week for the Farmers’ Market.  Other farmers’ markets at the beaches are starting pretty soon.

Just like the traditional “mercados” found in cities throughout the world, growers sell their produce directly to the public.  You can even have lunch at the Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market.  Some vendors have pick up delicacies.  For example, Yolanda from Mariachi which is located at Wilmington Ave. had Arroz con Pollo, Papusas, Tamales among other things.  Mariachi’s website is www.mariachirehobothde.com.

Shopping at farmers’ markets has become a weekly ritual for a lot of us that want to have fresh and local produce.  It is great to engage in conversation with some of the farmers.

The Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market has about 25 vendors.  To see the complete list, please visit www.rbfarmersmarket.com/vendors.html.   There are a few new ones but all the old standbys are there, as well.

All the cravings I get during the week for particular foods, Chinese is also one of them.  The other day went to Confucius, which I have blogged plenty of times.  It is located on 57 Wilmington Ave., tel. 302-227-3848.  Website is www.confuciusrehobothbeach.com.

It was quiet, so they made me a dish that they used to make when they had a restaurant in Wilmington.  Seasoned Beef, I believe it was called.  It was good, with a slight kick of heat and a light sauce.

IMG_2200

Frog legs were also ordered.  I am not crazy about them.  I don’t like the look of them; my opinion. I have not tried them and I can usually try anything.

IMG_2196

Also the salt and pepper shrimp were ordered, as well.  The shredded peppers were spicy; just enough.

IMG_2198

The sauteed green beans are a must at Confucius.  They have tiny shrimp and a bit of soy sauce; just gives them a special flavor.  Cooked al dente, they are great.

IMG_2199

An uneventful evening; relaxing.

 

Have a good Friday…see you…
