As for "Delaware good things":
  • We've only been here 6 weeks, but like maryCh said before, we went to Spence's Bazaar... which is an interesting place and somewhere to find a deal on something. Food is yummy too!!!!
  • One thing I like a lot here is the museum at the Air Force Base. It is free (suggested donation) and there are lots of real, big airplanes to see. My dad (who is 72) came to visit and I took him there. We both had a great time.
  • Silver Lake Park, though not that big, has a nice walking path and for kids, a playground. On some weekends there is a company that does kayaking on the lake (I read that in the Dover Post)
I haven't done any other sightseeing. We were waiting for summer to be over before we went to the beach (I'd prefer to walk along the beach, not swim or roast in the sun)...I also want to take our dog to find some good places to walk in the various state parks.

I'm also with you Lash, We are just starting to branch out now. Want to get down to cape Henelopen and get a yearly pass.

Fall is my best time of the year with cooler temps and not as much traffic.

BTW Dover has a visitors center which was kind of interesting too.

Wow! What great posts from all, and thanks!

Charley, I haven't visited the relative's PC (or the relative ) since receiving your advice, which, as I said, I'll combine with my own advice to me. If that doesn't work, I'll try Mike's instructions. MIKE! Thanks so much!

Mary, LASH, Eliza, it's great that you're all making your discoveries. I may learn something from you. Perhaps I already have. I'm going to brave Spence's again! I've not gone for years, because I used to have trouble with some guys following me around, but I've aged since then! Worth taking another look! And since you'll ask, my husband won't go there. Says he doesn't like being around so much junk. Geeze.

Eliza, one of our been-here-forever relatives remembers when Byler's was a tiny store at a different location. Says, even then, it was interesting. I got discouraged after the latest expansion. Thought it lost some of its special appeal. But fresh whole wheat rolls? Look for a middleaged woman with fairly long, fairly straight, almost black hair roaming the aisles next time you're there!

Mary and LASH, yes, off-season at the beach is best. We've even enjoyed the beach with snow falling. Beautiful!

LASH, Eliza mentioned Cape Henlopen, and the state park there has great sandy paths through evergreen woods. I think you and your dog would love exploring the lakeside paths at Killens Pond State Park too--and that's not far south of Dover.

Rushing as usual. Mary, please see my message in your "proud mom" post.

Thanks again, everyone.

Lori

I just can't imagine not exploring. Cape henelopen is amazing just as you described.

And yes, Fresh wheat kaiser rolls. So fresh, must have been baked right before they put them out.
I prefer Wheat flour to white flour. Try to watch the carbs. Besides, whole wheat is better for ya.

Will look for someone with long straight black hair roaming around Bylers.

It must of been nice before they expanded but I think it is still a neat place to visit.
You can get every grain, nuts and anything imaginable there.

Take care,

Talking Byler's

I have to confess, I went to Byler's just to check it out. I am now addicted to their Honey Cinnamon Almonds. I bought a bag, and had to go back the next day to buy another bag (ok...two bags). I also tried their fresh baked hamburger rolls. Yummy. I'll have to try the whole wheat rolls, as I too prefer to (need to) eat whole wheat.

Nobody is as computer as I am. I thought the mouse was a little grey animal you try to catch with a trap.

All their fresh baked pastries and bread are soooooo yummy.

come on Lash, you really mean 3 bags don't ya. LOL

I am amazed at all the different grains you can pick up. I had been looking for steel cut oat meal and they have it there. Back in Philly, I could just get it at Trader Joes or whole food. We dont' have either down here. Boo hoo

Hahaha..............I just thought you meant you weren't a computer.

Not to worry, just a typo. I do this ALL the time. The only time you won't see my typo's is when I do spell check and sometimes I am too lazy to do this so I just let em go.

You think you're computer illiterate? It took me three months to find the little button that makes the cup holder roll out!
