With all the waves of change that have happened in the last few months all I wanted to do was escape and relax. Last week I got to do exactly that and it was perfect! The beach was super calm, partly because it was an off week and partly because the weather forecast predicted rain for the entire week. While the weather looked bad, like really bad, rain every single day all day kind of bad, I knew I wanted to go despite it. Even if it rained the whole time I just wanted an excuse to get away from unpacking and read some books, go on walks and eat junky beach food like broccoli bites (which are not as healthy as they sound) as much as I’d like.
It was an added bonus when my youngest brother Bradley decided to join me! We packed up the car and headed down to the beach. It rained on and off for most of the drive but oddly enough as soon as we passed Rehoboth and pulled up on Bethany Beach the rain cleared! While the weather called for rain every day there was only one day that it rained all day and we couldn’t go to the beach. Every other day was gorgeous and maybe had a rain storm in the afternoon or evening! The sun was warm, the ocean was calm and I got to sit and do nothing but read and relax. I ate a lot of broccoli bites…. like every day for four days worth of broccoli bites. While I would do it again because…DUH, it was a little awkward when the same guy took my order at the walk up window each time… hahaha! YOIKES!
I also got to spend time with my brother and some really good friends! My friend Bobby was in town at his family’s beach condo that week and on Friday Jessie drove all the way up from Richmond to join too! It was such a treat all the way around! I came back feeling refreshed and ready to take on new things! Thank God!
