Good thing OCMD offers public transportation for a couple bucks, affectionately known as the "drunk bus" to keep the roads safe from those of us who've partied too hard. Riding the "drunk bus" is entertainment in itself. It was very late by the time we got back to the hotel.
Saturday morning we all met for a late breakfast at one of my favorites down there, The Bayside Skillet. The food has always been great, and the portions generous. They encourage sharing. Here's some of our grub and grog.That cocktail on the right? That was mine. Grand Mimosa. mmmmmm....
After stuffing ourselves, we went back to the hotel to get ready for the afternoon. We went to Seacrets. The place is huge. My ankle doesn't allow me much freedom to take advantage of some things there, like the floats in the water, but it was fun anyway. Spent the afternoon listening to the bands and partying, and then finding a bunch of empty lounge chairs to relax the rest of the afternoon away. The following pics are from Seacrets, and just happen to be the Saturday Sky. I kept singing..."Sitting on the Dock of the Bay."
We were at Seacrets for about 12 hours, so there wasn't much energy to do much else but go to bed.
We had decided to stay and extra day and leave on Monday instead of Sunday as we'd done in the past, so a whole day to do anything we wanted lay ahead. It was a glorious day. We shopped...walked on the boardwalk (slowly for me and stopping to rest) and had a late dinner and cocktails at Harpoon Hannah's on Fenwick Island. We ended the day there having cocktails and listening to the guitarist at their tiki bar.
Monday it was time to pack up and leave. On the way back, I got to stop at Sea Needles for some stash enhancement. The shop had some really really nice yarn, some of which came home with me. :-) My friends didn't believe there is yarn made out of bamboo, even when they saw it for themselves. I got some other yarn too...more on that later. The shop was nice, and the shop owner was too. Then, it was back to Rehoboth for more shopping, sitting on the boardwalk (me) and walking on the beach (the others) and an early dinner at the Purple Parrot Grill. Just as we were about to leave, the skies opened up and it poured for about a 1/2 hour. I never made it to Knitty Gritty, it was closed again. The link isn't working to it's website now, I wonder if it's closed for good? Anyway...it was time to head back home. It was really a nice weekend away. Then it was back to reality and the rat race at work on Tuesday.
