Larry's Birthday in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware 2016
Once a year I visit Rehoboth Beach in the height of the summer season. As a local (ten years now), I avoid Rehoboth Beach from Memorial Day until after Labor Day. Yep, I give it up. Even though I only live ten miles straight up the road (Route One), from Rehoboth Beach, I do not go into Rehoboth. Just too much traffic. Like slow molasses trying to drive into Rehoboth Beach.
The one time I visit is when I take my long time friend Larry Meredith out for lunch for his birthday, which was yesterday, June 27th.
Three years ago I started the tradition of getting our old time photo taken and then taking Larry to lunch. We didn't do the old time photo today, we did that last month when Pat was down. But we did do lunch.
One of the requests I make of Larry though is that he drive. I just cannot take that traffic.
Traffic wasn't too bad today. Probably because it was an overcast day with the threat of rain. However, Rehoboth was still plenty crowded but at least we weren't elbow to elbow people.
Both of us had trouble walking today. Well, we're both in our middle 70's. However, we did have a good day. We'll do it again next year!
