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, Delaware Beaches, Irene? Good Riddance, One Gorgeous Beach Day!!, The photos say it all



After the nail biting, hair raising past couple of days, Irene, left us with the perfect beach day.  If you have been to Rehoboth in September, then, today was one of those days that felt just like that.  Not too many people, gorgeous weather; that something in the air that tells you the season will be changing soon.

There is no argument in the fact that so much revenue was lost this week-end.  The outlets were still closed Sunday; that never happens.  The restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues wer slowly getting back to business.

Dewey Beach had Que Pasa opening at 4:30 p.m. and Hammerheads was opening at 5:00 p.m. tonight.

Sodel’s restaurants were opening tonight, as well.  FishOn, Betty’s, Matt’s Fish Camp, Bluecoast, Northeast.  If you go to their Lupo di Mare restaurant located on Rehoboth Avenue, you might event get some of my figs.  I dropped them off; don’t know what they are making with them, though.

I took a drive and at Rehoboth by the Sea the view of the beach was fantastic.  Did not seem to have suffered any erosion.  The dunes looked intact.

The town was open and visitors were back!!


On the north side of the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk the beach looked gorgeous too.  A few swimmers were enjoying the day like nothing had happened.


The World War II towers were still there; always watching the coast.



Silver Lake?  What can I say?  It is a special place and a waterfowl sanctuary.




Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition – Update

The construction site for the Jusst Sooup Ranch is located on Rt. 9.  The area is called Coolspring.  I went to check it out to make sure the structures they started not even a week were all there.  The show, probably, had never encountered so many weather related inconveniences.

Surprise!! Sod was already on, they were finishing her house.  Monday, volunteers can go to Cape Henlopen High School and take the bus to the site.  Wednesday is reveal day between 10 and Noon.  Take the bus and be there early if you want to see it.



As I turned on the road that I was not supposed to be on, I saw Mark.  He was the security guard that I spoke to in several occasions and who was always cheerful and nice.  You look familiar he said.  Yeap, can I go through this road?  I am only going home.  He let me go but not before telling me that besides a little water here or there, the construction site and the sod did very well.

From the beach to this road is only about 6 miles; the scenery so completely different. Soybeans on one side, corn on the other. You would not believe that you are so close to the beach.  It is like night and day.




So, after all the facebooking last night, all the food cooked, all the worries, then I am just thankful.

Talk to you later…
