We thought Hooper's Island was the end of the earth. We were wrong. Elliott Island on Fishing Bay now holds that title. Beautiful part of the shore, but something a little creepy there, with the number of abandoned houses, no trespassing signs, and dilapidated hunting camps.
Take a look.
|Still some storm damage from Hurricane Sandy.|
|All haunted houses have a buzzard on top.|
Were these bars meant to keep things out or in?
On the upside, there was this brilliant re-do. I am filing this away in case we ever own another older home.
|I'm thinking I'd want the ability to make a quick getaway if I lived down there too.|
The wind had died down by this morning and the temperature was expected to climb into the low 30's, so we drove over to Cape Henlopen in Delaware for a chilly beach walk.
|On the back side of the dunes.|
|Brrrr. Seemed way too cold to be worth it. There was very little surf.|
Left the beach for a late lunch at Dogfish Head in Rehobeth. We're mostly red wine drinkers here, but after tasting Bitches' Brew I could convert. Want to go back and tour the brewery some day soon. The food was excellent!
|Wood grilled salmon with caramelized onions, blue cheese, and garlic aoli.|
|Brownie sundae with Raison d'Etre ice cream. Who knew beer ice cream would taste so good?|
Hope you had some good food and fresh air in your weekend. Still hoping we'll have a measurable snowfall before winter ends. XO.
