Getaway: Day 1

How fabulous is it when you check into your hotel room, open up the balcony doors, and this is what you see:

A few months ago we decided that we wanted to spend the weekend in Rehoboth Beach again. We had such a great time in April 2009 when we spent the weekend here - unseasonably hot weather, great beer and food - that we booked our hotel for the last available weekend before the high season started.

We arrived Friday night around 7:30pm, dropped our bags in the hotel room, and rushed down the street to Dogfish Head Brewery to have dinner and drink beer:


Okay - so Willow wasn't drinking the beer - but I was:


This time I tried the Shelter Pale Ale and the 60 minute IPA - and I have to say that I really liked the Shelter Pale Ale. I really wish that Dogfish Head had a pub up here in Wilmington so we could try out their stuff more often - it is always a must stop when we stay at the beach.

After dinner we walked back down to the boardwalk where I snapped this picture of Willow on the beach:


She's getting so damn big. Would you believe she is less than 8 inches shorter than me now? Mind you, I'm not quite 5 feet tall, but it is quite disconcerting to have that height differential get smaller and smaller.

Tomorrow: Playing on the beach, dream homes, and yarn shopping!

Why yes, I would believe she's getting that damn big. Granted I've got a whopping 2" on you, but I've got a weed of my own that's set to overtake me soon!

Looks like a relaxing time! Nice!

The view of my dreams. Have fun.
