delaware delights

what's not to love about delaware?! the cities are surrounded by vast farmland with farmer's markets along the roads everywhere and tons of beaches are very close by. ryan and i had a great trip.

we went to see our friend annie. she lives in magnolia, de, a quaint little town surrounded by farmland galore.
love the irrigation system
crops as far as the eye can see. corn on one side and soybeans on the other.
we dined on some fabulous food. we had fantastic sushi at ichiban in dover. we enjoyed the most delicious cannolis we have ever put in our mouths from la fontana. and all you can eat crabs at waterman's seafood company in ocean city, md.
we also spent a day at lewes beach, de. we enjoyed watching the cape may-lewes ferries coming and going. we lounged in the sun and played around in the water. my wreck this journal even got in on the action. we people watched, journaled and just listened to the sounds of the surf. i really crave beach time and this was perfect.
love this pic, if you look close enough you can see my reflection in ryan's aviators
blue sky and beach as far as the eyes can see
the only jelly fish around
going to and from delaware we had to cross the bay bridge in maryland. i love this bridge. i think it's a fantastic structure and it's so beautiful to look out at the water and all of the commercial and personal boats.

I have never been to Deleware, just passed through on my way to Virginia Beach & the Outer Banks. I love that whole area -- The beaches are beautiful, and the seafood is to die for! I also love all of your pics, but especially the jellyfish and the sunglasses reflection and the irrigation system (that sky looks wicked). :o) I'm so happy that you had a fun & relaxing time! :o)
