A family weeks at the ocean! We used the South Bethany parking pass every morning and found "front row" parking. The beach is lovely and not crowded. One row of umbrellas and shade tents. (you can put up shade tents in SB - super for a family with little ones you want to protect from the sun.Two life guards per chair, a great safety feature. Our grand daughters loved the snack cart and the ice cone deliveries.
That was just part of our adventure. The canal gave us water access to the state park. Our son brought the dingy off their sail boat, and we used it for rides into the nature reserve where we encountered the birds and other native wildlife.
The grassy lawn made for a great whiffle ball field - until a foul ball landed in the canal- time to put the dingy into action. The screened in porch was a morning and evening gathering place for coffee & wine, respectively.
Our son is an executive chef and culinary instructor. The newly remodeled kitchen received a real workout during our visit. He was able to find fine seafood at the local seafood store. With a great chef in the house we did not go out to eat so we have no input regarding the local establishments.
The best part is that our family was complete because we were able to bring our dogs. We brought their crates and took care to walk them and clean up after them.
The great room was the scene of a week of laughter, memories of the past, appreciation of the present and dreams of the future.
