We spent four days at the beach...really didn't get to the beach (literally) ...except when we first got there...I stuck my toes in the water...it was so warm! I think the perfect time to go to the beach is September- the crowds are all gone...the water is WARM, the weather is balmy...and about 1/2 of the stores and restaurants are still open.
We are house hunting. We have narrowed our search to an area near Bethany Beach, DE. We want to be within 5 miles of the ocean. We visited a bunch of new communities being built. Most were absolutely beautiful...one community was nice, but they were villas (a fancy term now being used for townhouses) and they were tiny- so at least we were able to eliminate that community.
So much to think about! Do we want a house or a villa? Brand new or a nearly new? We are not the handy type, so no fixer-uppers for us.
