Entering Rehoboth Beach the Morning of Irene
Bill and I take a ride to Rehoboth Beach, which is six miles down the road from where we live north of Rehoboth. I want to take some videos of the once in a lifetime event of a deserted Rehoboth Beach on an August Saturday morning. I wasn't disappointed as the following videos will show. To listen to me talking on the videos, turn off the music on this blog by pushing the Pause button.
We continue our ride into Rehoboth this morning as the darkness recedes.
Now we are about to enter Rehoboth Beach.
We drive down a deserted Rehoboth Avenue, the main drag in Rehoboth Beach. Normally on a late August Saturday morning like this morning, this road would be clogged with vehicles and people and bikes.
I get out of our Jeep and walk to the Atlantic Ocean in Rehoboth. Already the waves ares starting to swell up and a light rain falls.
Walking down a deserted Rehoboth Avenue this rain and wind sweated August Saturday morning in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.
Bill and I "get out of Dodge" and head back home before the rains really start to come down.
We continue on north on Rt. 1 to our home.
The rain is picking up now as we head home to safety.
We take a ride down Oyster Rocks Road to the Broadkill River, which is the closest body of water to us.
There isn't any development at the end of Oyster Rocks Road because it is a marshland. However, across the marshland you can see the million dollar house waiting for Irene this evening. I wonder if they will be standing tomorrow.
