Pat and Ron on the Boardwalk
While Pat was down here for a few days last week (settling on the sale of his lot in Milton), I took advantage of his driving skills (he had a rented car) and had him take me to the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.
Normally during the summer tourist season I stay as far away as possible from the madness that is Summertime In Rehoboth Beach. But I do have to admit I do like to experience the "Gone to the beach summer ambiance" at least once. However, when I've done The Deed on my own, it's just not the same as experiencing this unique summer tradition with a friend. Bill can't stand the crowds and the posing and the noise. The only time I can get Bill to go with me to the boardwalk is very early in the morning when no one else is around except those crack of dawn yoga ladies on the beach (what is THAT all about anyway).
In past years my longtime friend Lar and I would take the "boardwalk walk", Larry driving of course. We would do that on the day of Lar's birthday on June 27th, right after we had our annual Olde Time photo session. However this year we took the photos early during Pat's spring visit. We took the walk on the boardwalk but it wasn't the same as the craziness that is the height of the season Boardwalk Walk.
I especially like walking and experiencing the boardwalk in early evening just as the sun is going down. So, to make a LONG story short (why am I taking so many words to say this?), I absconded Pat to take me to the boardwalk.
I got plenty of photos and videos (two of which I'm posting here including the one below which I just found out I was "video bombed" by a girl behind us - the nerve).
So sit back and enjoy our fun videos from the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. The only downside of our wonderful experience last week was our two friends Ed and Wayne ("The Cajun") weren't here to enjoy our camaraderie. Both Ed and Wayne had homes right in Rehoboth Beach, only a few blocks from the boardwalk. This year their homes are empty but their memories, and the many times we shared laughter, will remain.
