Oct 27, 2013 - Bethany Beach, Delaware

Day 236 - 237 of The Big Trip The 26th was another of those really long days. In about an hour, we drove the 50 miles from Dover to Bethany Beach, where we parked at a beautiful little campground on a Delaware National Guard facility. Getting there, we crossed a pretty suspension bridge. Those pillars were visible for miles. Clark and I had plans to have dinner with a classmate from the USAFA. We drove to Rehoboth Beach, found their house, and had a wonderful evening. We hadn't seen them in years, so we had a lot of catching up to do. We...

Nov 16, 2012 - Reflections

November 16, 2012 Thoughts about the trip. Generally, a wonderful trip. We kayaked a lot and explored rivers previously unknown to us. Saw lots of birds, took lots of photos, and ate all kinds of wonderful, albeit fattening, foods. Put South Carolina, Georgia and Florida on our RV “map”. Now only missing 6 states. Had a great time in the Keys with Carlie and Leslie and exploring on our own as well and would go back in a heartbeat – especially if we could mooch off our friends. Would definitely take another trip like this but might avoid the...

Nov 15, 2012 - Delaware Seashore SP

November 15, 2012 Happy 60th Birthday to my brother, Charlie. Our last day of the trip before we arrive home. We awoke to another cold, windy day but with skies leaden looking. The spindrift on the shore skittled across the sand leaving tracks in its wake. Dixie couldn’t decide whether to chase it or to get out of its way. The waves were quite large and churned up so much spindrift that it almost looked like bubble bath along the shore. We took a long walk then went to visit another new home community near Fenwick Island. Tonight, we had a...

Nov 14, 2012 - Delaware Beaches SP

November 14, 2012 Naturally, if we are at Delaware Beaches State Park, it must be really cold and windy and it is! The wind is blowing at around 40 mph and it was only about 50 degrees today but felt like 34! Walking on the beach, I wore my down parka, a gator over my face, my “ear” hat and ski mittens. Needless to say, it was a little difficult to take photos. When I took my mittens off, I could only last about three minutes before I had to put them back on. We visited a community of new homes called Lighthouse Crossing in Selbyville,...

Nov 13, 2012 - Trip to Delaware Beaches State Park

Best laid plans…. Had planned to go across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and north up the Delmarva Peninsula to Delaware Seashore State Park. We were expecting rain and got it but what we weren’t expecting was the wind. We called the Bay Bridge information center and were told that we would not be able to cross the Bay Bridge because of more than 47 mph winds. The gentleman said that they expected the restriction to be lifted around noon but couldn’t guarantee anything so we had to spend time figuring out what our options were. I was all for...

Nov 7, 2010 - Delaware Beaches State Park

November 7, 2010 We drove to Delaware Beaches State Park today. It is located between Bethany and Dewey Beaches, Delaware. We usually stay here at least twice each year; for our first trip of the year in March and usually for the last trip of the year in November. Without fail, it is always really cold and really windy and today was no different. It was about 50 degrees but the wind was wild; probably at least 30 mph. If not for the sun, it would have been bitter but, we were prepared for the cold weather and had our hats, down jackets and...

Jul 26, 2009 - Alas, A Hiatus

From Barb's we drove to Marblehead Ohio. We planned to take the ferry to Put-In-Bay (a party town on Bass Island in Lake Erie.. Often referred to as "Key West North") and camp for a few days. I had been there a few times in the late 90s to visit my friends Art and Margaret Kidder. They were snowbirds that worked in the campground in Key West where I used to work. Art died a few years ago and I lost track of Margaret. Anyway, I hoped to re-establish contact. Surprisingly, Margaret was in fact briefly in town visiting her son. We went to...
