Hello World!

I'm back from a week on the Delmarva Peninsula, where we were staying right on the Delaware-Maryland border in Bethany Beach. The weather was extremely hot but the ocean was lovely, and we did a lot of sightseeing in and around the area. One day we went to Assateague National Seashore, primarily famous for its wild ponies (which we saw, not far from the roadside, grazing) but which is also home to thousands of birds, crabs, reptiles and deer. Another day we went to Lewes, "the first city in the first state", which has a lightship now open for tours and many relics from the War of 1812, including "Cannonball House", which was struck by a British shot in 1813 that can still be seen sticking out of the foundations.

We went to many maritime museums, including the Discover Sea shipwreck museum in Fenwick Island, the Historical Society museums with their lighthouse exhibits in Lewes, the Richardson Maritime Museum with its shipbuilding history in Cambridge and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum with dozens of exhibits from oyster dredging to wooden canoe restoration in St. Michaels. We also went to a couple of zoos and aquariums, the boardwalks in Rehoboth, Delaware and Ocean City, Maryland, and of course to play miniature golf and eat salt water taffy. What else is summer for?
