Hello Everyone! It's good to be getting back into my normal routine after our trip to Delaware to spend time with my extended family. My parents rented a huge, gorgeous house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where they and all their children and their families gathered to spend time together. At one point there were twenty-three people staying in the six-bedroom house, with seven of those being six years old or younger!
I'll do another post with some beach pictures, but first I wanted to post some of the garden and plant photos I took throughout the week. I really didn't take that many photos at all, mainly because I didn't have my camera handy when I wanted it and keeping track of all the kids precluded leisurely picture taking. But here are a few nice ones from throughout the week.
These were taken in downtown Lewes, Delaware. This is a nice area to walk around with arty shops and pretty B&B's and sidewalk cafes. We really enjoyed the couple of hours we had here just strolling the streets and window shopping.
These next photos were taken at Cape Henlopen State Park. This was a very nice park, especially if you are a biker. They even have a bike shed where you can borrow a bike for a couple of hours, free of charge. They have a nice beach area which, although crowded, had very nice facilities, there were lots of paths and trails throughout the park, a frisbee golf course, and a WWII observation tower which you could climb. They also have lots of programs which you can find out about at the Nature Center which is where these photos were taken. You see, they had a very nice butterfly garden area just outside the center.
These last photos were taken at Nassau Valley Vineyard, the first winery in Delaware. They have a self-guided tour and then provided wine tastings. It was very interesting and they had some pretty landscaping in addition to all the grapes.
Well, that's all for now. I promise a future post with beach and family photos.
