Day 1- Fenwick Island, DE

Day 1
First stop, Atlantic coast to a warm and inviting beach. On the way from western MD, we encountered a slow leak in our tire. We decided to get it fixed first so our first quest was to find a tire repair shop. Using our trusty iPhone we quickly found a list of contenders. First one on the list, Rehobeth Auto Repair was unhelpful and unfriendly. Too bad. Next stop was “The Garage”, on Coastal highway in Rohobeth. They greeted us with a smile and a positive outlook for our situation. They took care of our tire immediately and had us back on the road in 20 minutes. It was a great way to start the day, friendly service with a smile. Our mechanic was kind, informative, and did it all with a smile…we love that!

We checked into the Sunset Inn on Fenwick island , DE. Just a few steps from the beach, a perfect retreat to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate for the next step of our journey. A quick stroll along the Atlantic ocean was just what we needed.

We enjoyed an Everything bagel with Cream cheese at Über Bagel on 122nd St in Ocean City MD.

Back to the beach for an afternoon of sun and surf.
Dinner was simple and across the street from the Seaside Inn at Warrens Station, a family style dinner with an efficient staff of young ladies. Seeking a bit of comfort food we chose the traditional turkey dinner, but it was a bit gray. The dark meat and dressing were the same color as the overcast skies. Not the best turkey dinner I’ve ever had.

Staying with tradition, We ventured to the boardwalk. The smells of the boardwalk are of a mixed variety. Anything south of Dorchester your asking for a strong unpleasant stinch of carnival ride diesel and old grease….yum. It was crowded with vacationers from all walks of life which provides for an entertaining evening. The crowded boardwalk is definitely not our scene, but we did indulge ourselves in the fanfare with a funnel cake white with powdered sugar and a bag of pink cotton goodness. After our evening snack we headed back to the quiet end of town to our humble abode off Coastal & Houston.
