Sunset in our campground

Bethany Beach Boardwalk

Main Street in Rehoboth Beach

The Delaware Seashore has been our home since Tuesday. The land seems flat compared to the hills of Pennsylvania which Ray maneuvered very well even with the 6 to 7% grades. We passed many mushroom farms just before crossing into Delaware. Our campground is a state park which offers full hookups..water, sewage, and electricity. It seems unusual for a state or national park. Unfortunately the weather hampered us going to the ocean so we went sightseeing. The two storms had heavy winds and much lightning. We were very glad we had a 5th wheel and not a tent!

Today we visited Bethany Beach and Reboboth Beach, both very nice villages similar to Skaneateles. The main route reminds us of Long Beach Island. We also went north and inland to check out the historic community of Milton. Lots of Victorian homes and you can see where people are moving into the community to improve its quality. After a walk, we stopped at a cafe for a cup of coffee and a snack.

While we have been here we have tried to eat in local restaurants instead of chain restaurants. We celebrated my birthday on Tuesday and had a very nice seafood dinner.

If there is a disappointment so far , it is the lack of recycling in the campgrounds. Gas prices have gone down 20 cents since leaving NY. The cost of doing laundry at a campground is cheaper than finding a laundromat in a town.

I hope this entry receives a better rating from my mother. She only gave me 4 stars for the Lancaster entry. It seems I was not supposed to take any photos of the Amish. Sorry, mom. hahaha

On to Cape Hatteras tomorrow.
