Lewes Vacation

We had the opportunity to spend a few days in Lewes, Delaware, a town I know well because my grandparents live there. Growing up in southern Delaware, James and I both frequently visited nearby Cape Henlopen State Park and Lewes Bay.

Each day, James was working at UD’s Lewes campus and I had the day with the kids. Most days we went to the beach for a few hours, then hit the hotel pool, then relaxed int he hotel before grabbing a quick dinner when James came home. Our hotel didn’t have a kitchenette but we did have a fridge and I had brough a few barebones dining things, so we only ate out for dinner.

Unfortunately, I hadn’t charged the camera so I didn’t get as many photos as I usually do, but I’m sharing what I did capture.

Also, you’ll notice a dearth of photos of Evelyn (12 years old). This is because she came down with a nasty head cold halfway through our beach holiday and ended up resting rather than participating in some of the summertime festivities.

Somewhere in that wave is Calvin! The kids all enjoyed boogie boarding at Cape Henlopen.
Charlotte took this panorama on her camera of the Canalfront Marina in Lewes.
We slipped out to the pool from a quick date night after a storm blew through. The sky was amazing and our photos don’t do it justice!
Charlotte, our animal whisperer, caught a thousand sandcrabs.
This was the first visit to the beach when I was able to relax a bit because all three kids can swim.

Our last night in Lewes we drove to Rehoboth for Funland and the boardwalk. Sadly, Evelyn felt really poorly (as you can see in this photo), so she didn’t go on any rides. An excuse to go back later this summer!
