Our family has been going to Bethany Beach, Delaware since my husband's grandfather built a cinderblock cottage in the 1950's. Each of his three children have since built their own houses bay-side and our family's house is one of our favorite places to be each summer.

We had the great fortune to spend this past weekend there - an even more rare opportunity that Bethany and I (and her hubs) got to go together! The Mister opted to take care of our 2 horses, 2 cats and 2 dogs for us so we could have a mini-vacation. We had grandiose plans of shopping and visiting our favorite haunts, but the weather put a damper on our plans. It was 108 degrees on Saturday as we drove around, too hot even to shop! And though we are die hard beach-goers, the ocean was barely refreshing and the walk in the blazing sand to the sea was unbearable.
After 2 hours we felt sick from the sun and napped and lazed the rest of the day in the A/C. I rarely remember it ever being too hot to enough the ocean!
|Our skin looks 1000 years old in this sun but this was the only pic left of 'us' after Instagram froze up.|
We did manage to frequent some of our favorites: Beach Plum Antiques (below), Carolina Street and the Pottery Place.
We were ever intrigued with the architecture of the homes and charm of the Northeastern style beach homes and took many pictures of the cottages we love and remind us of our favorite beach.

We had a blast and we are already aching to go back. Water is the best cure for anything. How was your weekend? Come across anything inspiring?
Also, we've extended our GIVEAWAY! It ends next Monday, July 16th, so don't forget to enter!
