We arrived in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware yesterday around 5:00 pm. After some minor hotel issues (resolved to our satisfaction), we walked up and down the boardwalk. This was my first time on a real eastern seaboard boardwalk. It’s a fun place to hang out for a few days, and it is heaven on earth for kids. The boardwalk is one mile long, and it is lined with the following: Pizza restaurants, ice cream joints, popcorn stands, boardwalk French Fry stands, video game arcades, carnival rides, candy shops, salt water taffy stores, gelatto stands, beach stores, T-shirt shops, sundries, sub sandwich places, and hot dog, burger, & gyros stands.
After Gillian and I rode the bumper cars and went through the haunted house, we looked out over the ocean and saw an orange orb coming up from the horizon. It was what I would call a “moonrise.” I have never seen the moon actually appear to rise up out of a body of water like this, and it really was a beautiful sight.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday we left a chaotic, energetic, bustling Manhattan, and today we laid around at the pool and the beach. Life has slowed to a crawl. Personally, I loved NYC and especially Manhattan, and I could have stayed for a few more days. There is so much I did not get to see and do there.
Although I like the beach town atmosphere, I will be ready to leave Sunday morning. I feel like we were learning, seeing, and doing so much in New York, and now our brains have turned to mush, and I am eating so much junk.
Tomorrow will be more of the same – eating, lying around, eating, walking a little, lying around some more, and then eating some more. I think I am going to explode.
