Vacation at the Beach



We're heading to Lewes Delaware tomorrow for a week. We go every summer and just love it there. It is a quaint little hidden jewel in the mid-Atlantic beach community.
Lewes is the first city in the first state (earliest town in the first state to ratify the Constitution). It was settled by the Dutch in 1631 and is rich in history and in charm. Lewes technically sits on the lowest edge of the Delaware Bay however on the far side of Lewes is Cape Henlopen State park which sits on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the best of both worlds - ocean on one side, bay on the other. The house we rent is on the bay side and the "park" is 1/4 mile down the road for enjoying the ocean.
Hoping for good weather.
Be back next weekend........
