Greetings from Delmarva

We are home, probably to the relief of our cats and my mother who was feeding them but I really hope I can see the ocean again (either ocean) before the year is over. It was probably time to go anyway: Fenwick Island had more people arriving for July 4th weekend and when we stopped in Rehoboth Beach, the beach itself looked crowded, though the boardwalk had plenty of social distancing and the police were enforcing required masks.

We had thought about getting Nic-o-bolis from Nicola's Pizza, but decided to avoid the shopping streets, though we bought some fries before leaving Delaware and ate them at lunch in Tuckahoe State Park, where there were almost no people and many wild animals. We got home in time for leftovers before watching Hamilton on Disney+, which is a real joy. Here are a few photos from our last vacation day, more after the laundries are done!

There were a lot more people in Rehoboth Beach...

...even more than laughing gulls, so we stuck to the boardwalk instead of the sand and shopping streets.

Since there was no line, we did grab some Thrasher's fries and take them for lunch...

...which we ate in Tuckahoe State Park next to the lake full of geese, turtles, and frogs.

We also saw this baby bunny in the bushes, plus a little toad.

We walked a bit along the lake; you can see that we're both somewhat sunburned despite using sunblock.

Here is one of the final seagulls we saw on the trip, flying over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
