R&R at the Beach

I'm back.  Maybe you didn't realize I was away, but last week we took our annual trip to Primehook Beach, DE with my parents and sister and her kids.  Unlike much of our area and the northern part of Delaware, we had beautiful weather--breezy (windy some days), low humidity and mild temps for most of theweek.

Sunset over the bay.
Primhook Beach is a small community on the Delaware Bay.  To get there you have to drive through Primehook Beack National Wildlife Refuge with its huge numbers of water birds and other critters (like this fox--one of 4 we saw while driving through at night).  The bay's water is warm and has kid-sized waves.  And there's next to nobody on the private beach.  Very nice and quiet.
One of the foxes we saw at night in the refuge.

Food-wise, we didn't do too much out of the ordinary.  Bought some wonderful peaches, cantaloupe and watermelon (one of the best I've ever had) at Penn Vermont Fruit Farm in Bedminster.  If you've never been there, go--the fruit is out of this world and pretty reasonably preiced.

How many pictures of this kid eating ice cream do we have?
We walked around the Rehoboth Beach's boardwalk one night--getting dinner at Grotto Pizza (one of the 2498 of them in the area).  To be honest, the pizza was so-so, but the kids like going there.
Not the greatest pizza in the world, but we were hungry!

So now we get back the the usual grind--get ready for Jake to start kindergarten in a couple of weeks.  And looking forward to our trip to Maine in Sept!
