This is perhaps my favorite time of the year. While we permanent residents of Slower Lower appreciate our summertime visitors (and all that money they bring to our coffers) it is always nice to get our town back. Is it ever!
So while Bill mowed the grass at Casa Tipton-Kelly, I slid into my 2010 red Subaru Forester and high tailed it down to Rehoboth for a walk on the boardwalk and maybe a photo opportunity.

It didn't take too long. Once I parked by the Cape Henlopen Hotel (parking meters are off!), I walked up to the boardwalk and saw a gathering. A wedding on the beach! Very windy but that didn't daunt our wedding party. Above is the video that I took of the bridesmaids and bride making their entrance to the beach. I didn't stick around for the wedding, you all know how that goes. But I did want to give you all a Slice of Life on Rehoboth Beach in the after season. The hotel where I work in Lewes also had a wedding this weekend. I'm happy for the bride and groom but glad I wasn't there for the festivities. Wedding parties are a pain (sorry mom and dad of the bride). I would just rather miss the whole shindig.

I took a short walk down the boardwalk to Old Time photo. I had my wedding book with me that Camilla of Old Time Photo had graciously made for me and Bill. She hadn't seen it. I waited until the summertime crowds were gone before going in to see her. Unfortunately she wasn't in. I'll go again. We have many weeks of beautiful weather in the off season. In fact even in December and January a day pops up here and there that is in the 60's or 70's and you can bet I'm quick to take advantage my hopping in my car and zooming on down to Rehoboth.
I hope you all had a pleasant Sunday. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here the past two weeks. Life is good.
