I didn't know that--yet one more thing to love about Delaware. Does it run all year or just in the summer?

My husband and I love the Rusty Rudder. That's where we first met on our blind date . We attend the music festivals every October and April. However, we rarely visit during the summer unless we're having the land and sea buffet--just too crowded and we rarely see anybody we know.

I haven't been to the Bottle and Cork in years, but I used to go when I was in my 20's. The Baycenter used to have some pretty good national acts, but they haven't had any of our music (hard rock) in awhile. We saw Sevendust and Breaking Benjamin there years ago.

I think the JT only runs from May-September (?).

That's cool, after September it probably would be easy to ride through Dewey anyway.

I just got this e-mail from Jolly Trolley:

"Yes you can bring a bicycle on. We do ask that you be careful when bringing the bike on and off of the trolley, so not to scrape up the paint. Also bikes are only allowed during non-peak times, meaning please dont bring your bike on when a Jolly Trolley is full or filling up. This is only two or three hours per day, so most of the time a bicycle is ok."

I save my work trips to the beach areas for Tuesday and Wednesday morning....not as much traffic.

It really does amaze me how vacationers ride bikes in the beach towns, willey-nilley, weaving through traffic with great big smiles on their faces and their little kids peddling behind. Picture me and beachliz, behind our wheels gritting our teeth and with big scowls on our faces.

LOL, rdlr! You know it!

I also plan my trips to Rehoboth during midweek. Heaven forbid if it rains on any day during the summer though....I often need at least an hour to travel 15 miles. Oh, and that IR inlet bridge southbound traffic....UGGGGGG.

LOL I know what you mean about the cyclists. Sometimes they're fine but sometimes I wonder--are they drunk or did their common sense take a vacation?

Today's Question:

I see there is a National Guard base of sorts just north of Bethany. Are most of the year round residents military people? Are there places in Bethany that are restricted to military only? Are there any worries that this base might close?

Ahhh...memories
I vividly remember when my husband was on a training mission there in 1961. I was trying to reach him because I went into labor with our firstborn.

It's just a training site, not active all of the time.
