Back from vacation. It was great. The b and b, the Blue Water House Inn, was the perfect place to stay. Only two blocks to the beach and a ten minute walk into town. We only used the car once while we were there. Which was great because the stress of getting home was a bit much. A tractor trailer careened off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge after some teenager fell asleep at the wheel and veered into the way of the poor truck driver, who was killed by the accident.

The inn was perfect also because it was on stilts and had a wraparound porch. Each room on that floor had a piece of the porch. you could be private or choose to chat with your neighbors. We also had a hammock as our extra. Another room had a swing and the other two corner rooms had Adirondack chairs. Middle rooms just got the standard cafe table and two chairs (yes, we got that too). The place also treated you as grownups. You could borrow forks or plates or bowls and return them. We ended up hanging out part of Sunday afternoon in a turret room where you had a 360 degree view of the surf, sand and land as the storms rolled in.

We also went to Cape May, famous for its cute Victorians. They were ok. The place was too touristy, whereas Lewes was cutely historical but not overwhelmingly touristy.
