Before I get started, let me say that I admire people who have the chutzpah to travel during coronavirus. I wasn’t sure we would have it in us to venture into it. However, after the year we had in 2019 that caused us to cancel three vacations, we were looking forward to getting away this year.
Then, 2020 hit. In May of this year, we also had to cancel a fourth vacation—our daughter’s celebratory high school graduation trip due to the pandemic. After that, we delayed booking something in Hilton Head for August. It wasn’t until two weeks ago that we found a house in Bethany Beach in Delaware, and we decided to give it a whirl.
My children have never vacationed here. Most of our beach vacations have been spent in the Outer Banks or Hilton Head, with one long weekend in Ocean City.
My childhood memories, however, were spent here. Bethany Beach holds incredible memories for me, of time spent with my parents, brother, both sets of my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, and friends. Our collective family hasn’t vacationed here since 1999.
It’s so great to be back.
Bethany’s quaintness thrives in this adorable beach town. It’s as sweet and special as ever—the perfect place to take your family for a week. Plus, for us, living right outside Annapolis, the quick ride to the Delaware beaches sure beats the long drive to the Carolina beaches.
I’m actually sitting on the beach right now blogging from my beach chair. It’s just what the doctor ordered, masks and all.
More coming about this special place. For now, I gotta go catch some rays.
