We had a great time at Rehoboth Beach & were bummed we only had 2 nights there. Next year I think we may try for 4 nights or so. A whole 6 nights might be a bit much just from a sand & sun point.
My SILs rented a house a couple blocks from the beach. It was a 70 year old bungalow style house that had been updated a bit. Lovely hardwood floors everywhere. A very nice place but like nearly all house rentals you have to bring everything but plates. Sheets, towels, toilet paper, food are all on you & guess who’s husband failed to mention the sheets & towels thing until we were sitting on the front porch of the house waiting for his sisters to arrive with the key?
We brought food. I had foreseen that, but we bring food everywhere we go so it’s not really an issue. I’d wondered about the linens but since nothing had been said & nothing was on the rental website I figured sheets were provided.
Apparently my SIL sent DH an email on July 7 reminding him about the sheets, towels & toilet paper issue, but DH never saw it until we were sitting on the porch. Fortunately they brought extras.
And you have to clean up after yourself.
Cooking, cleaning, washing dishes, had we been there longer I would have done laundry.
Exactly how is that a vacation really? Same work, different location.
But it was really nice to have the whole house available. It had a big main room with cable tv,a/c, two bedrooms downstairs and a big open upstairs that could sleep 6-8 people, plus a nice kitchen, dining room & screen porch
I think though if just the 4 of us stay at the beach I would prefer an efficiency suite at a hotel. They provide everything but the food and clean up after you.
To me a vacation is meant to be spent in comfort and laziness, which is why I hate camping.
The boys loved the beach. Havoc spent most of his time in the waves and Mayhem spent his buried in sand
There was a Funland on the boardwalk about 2 blocks from our street, we went a couple times. It had rides for the kids
I left the D40 at home. These were all taken with my cell.
Apart from the 53 minute wait at the Bay Bridge toll booth, it was a great trip & I think we’ll try to get a beach destination vacation in next year or the one after.
