Oh my! This has taken me longer then I thought it would to get to posting about this. Last weekend was our anniversary as you saw here. I let Sean plan our anniversary and he was doing a good job until he ran into some snags and we ended up planning parts of it together. We visited Rehoboth Beach in Delaware and Cape May, New Jersey all in one short weekend.
Our weekend started mid day Friday. He took the day off and I got off a noon. I raced home and in less then 30 minutes we were off and running to the beach.
Upon arriving at the beach, there happens to be an outlet mall that spans 3 locations because of the number of stores. As you can see we cleaned up nicely getting some great deals might I add. Always fun outlet mall shopping together.
We headed over to the Hotel Rehoboth where we stayed for the weekend and checked in. Then it was off to see the beach and find someplace to have some dinner. We quickly realized that August at the beach is packed and that it might take a while to get some dinner. We were going to go to the Dogfish Head Restaurant but they had a 45 minute wait and it started pouring down rain while we were waiting so we went in the restaurant next door that didn’t have a wait at all and was delicious.
Saturday was up and at ’em early to make our way over to the car ferry in Lewes, Delaware. We got very lucky, when we pulled up they told us that the first ferry was full but we might be able to get on it depending on how it filled. If we didn’t get on the first one we would have to wait an hour or so to get on the second one. Luckily we were one of the last ones on the ferry. Towards the front of the ferry there was a horse trailer on the ferry and you could hear the horses stomping around in there wanting to get out. Do you blame them?
Once we finished at the Light House it was time to find some lunch. Easier said then done in Cape May. Finding a parking spot at a very crowded Beach on an August weekend was almost impossible. We finally found someplace to park after about 30 or 40 minutes of driving around. We walked down the street and found a Stewart’s Rootbeer Restaurant and had lunch there.
After being a little frustrated on finding a parking place and getting some lunch, we walked around Cape May. I did not take any pictures while we were walking around even though we did see some very neat Victorian houses along the way. We were going to walk on the beach but you actually have to pay to walk on the beach so we decided that it was time to try to play some putt putt. I had seen a place that I thought would be fun to play on our way in to town. It was more difficult then what we thought it was going to be but that it is completely ok.
For the record Sean won by two shots.. He gets to decide where we will be going next year for our anniversary. After playing putt putt we were done with Cape May. We were both ready to head back. We had originally planned to stay longer but we weren’t finding anything else we really wanted to do while there. We pulled up to the ferry terminal and Sean explained that we had reservations for one of the later ferries but we wanted to see if we could move it up to a time sooner. The lady replied yes I can probably get you on right now. She gave us on ticket and we were one of the last ones on the ferry. It worked out nicely.
Once back at Rehoboth it was time to figure out dinner. We found a nice place on the boardwalk and we were able to get reservations. It was just enough time to open the notebook from our wedding night and read what everyone at that table wrote to us. This table was my mom and dad, my grandparents and my brothers’ table. It was a lot of fun to read and I think that Sean and I both look even more forward to seeing what others wrote to us that night. It was neat to have a piece of our wedding with us while we celebrated. We also decided that it will be fun to take a picture with the notebook each year.
Needless to say we both could have spent a little longer but we also knew that we only have a short time before we head on vacation!
An added bonus on our way home was that as we passed by the DE City Refinery, we found another Heritage Unit. This one was the Wabash. Only fitting that a year ago on our wedding day Sean saw his first unit driving around while taking wedding pictures.
