At The Water's Edge

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.  One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach-waiting for a gift from the sea.”  anne morrow lindbegh


Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a vibrant community, offering its visitors and residents gorgeous beaches, an award-winning Boardwalk, where plenty of memories are made each year.  It is a foodies destination…from the Boardwalk grub to restaurants whose unique chefs are bringing us more innovative cooking than ever before.  Downtown Rehoboth Beach is one square mile….tax free shopping, theatre, and low property taxes.  It is also known as The Nation’s Summer Capital.

Living at the beach…I love it and do not take it for granted.  Rehoboth Beach has evolved over the years.  If you love vacationing here…stop by the Rehoboth Beach Museum, which is also the home of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society.  Its mission is to preserve and showcase artifacts that illustrate the development of this coastal beach town.

The Rehoboth Beach Museum is located at 511 Rehoboth Avenue near the traffic Circle and the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.  Tel. 302-227-7310  Website?



Sunday, April 19th – Children ages 5 to 8 are invited to join the Rehoboth Beach Museum from 2 p.m. until 2:45 p.m. to learn about Sea Folklore and create a friendly sea creature out of inexpensive materials.  Please call 302-227-7310 to save a spot for your little seafarer.


Saturday, May 2nd – My Doll and Me Tea party for girls 6-12 years of age.  Young ladies are invited for an afternoon to share with others their favorite dolls on Saturday, May 2nd, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.  Ice tea, lemonade and sweet treats will be served.


Girls will play and learn old-fashioned games such as hop scotch, marbles, cat’s cradle and hula hoop.  Each girl will be invited to tell a special story about her doll.  Girls are encouraged to dress up and to dress their dolls in their best outfits.


The cost of the tea party is $10 and includes admission to the museum, refreshments and games.  The event is limited to 15 girls with one doll each.  Please call 302-227-7310 to make a reservation.  I was one of those girls that played with dolls all the time.  I loved them.  Here is my own Brownie Doll, circa….I don’t remember.


I had the opportunity to help out on one of the tea parties…so much fun!!


Thursday, May 7th – Join the Rehoboth Beach Museum for an evening of great memories at 7 p.m..  They will be pulling some photos out of their collection, featuring folks who are not identified.  Help them identify who is on those photos.  Bring along a few of your own and get help finding out just who is featured in your family pictures.  Reservations are required.  Please call 302-227-7310.


Saturday, May 23rd – Opening of the new exhibit that celebrates who made Rehoboth Beach great!!  11 a.m.

Check this out!!!  The Rehoboth Beach Museum has partnered with Discover Bank and the local Boy and Girls Club to help build futures one Lego piece at a time.  Dicscover Bank provided funds so that Rehoboth Beach local, Lydia Hastings, graduate of the University of Maryland Civil Engineering  program, could create a great environment for future engineers to learn about Lego NXT Mindstorm Robotics.  The Museum seeks to link the kinds of engineering tasks that it took to cut, move and store ice in the old ice house, which the museum now occupies, with today’s engineering tasks completed by robot.


Recently, Lydia held a Lego Robotics course at the Boys and Girls Club of America Epworth United Methodist Church location, and it was a resounding success.  The first class learned about the different Lego robotic sensors and even how to program their robots to accomplish different tasks.  They had a ton of fun!!  Next one will be in May….stay tuned.

Hope you have a great week-end TGIF!!  At the Beach?  Hope so.
