Taking a Break

We live in Delaware and are about 45 minutes from the beach.  In the summer we don't go to the beach too often because of the tourist traffic.  We have lived here for 8 years and every year it seems we get to the beach less and less.  This year is going to be different!  My hubby and I decided to take a mid week break and stay a night at an ocean front hotel in Rehoboth Beach. 

We stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel... this is one beautiful place let me tell ya... very Victorian decor.

This is the dining room!
Delicious food... we had a crab bowl for lunch and a I had a dark chocolate cheesecake for desert.... yumm!

The view from our balcony!
I love listening to the waves and we had a balcony that is ocean front.  The balcony door was open all night...  It is so soothing to me!

Our bed where we could relax, look at, and listen to the ocean!

If you are ever in this part of the world and want to stay somewhere nice try the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware!  Pretty part of the world!

Looking at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel from the beach.

All in all we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves... but we have been campers all of our marriage and believe it or not I think we will be shopping for a camper or a motorhome again!  This was nice but I love having my own bed and the privacy of our own space!  What is your favorite way to get away? 


  1. Forget the pictures of the beach, I want to see that dark chocolate cheesecake! Yum. And those rooms look like something you would expect in a bed and breakfast, not a big hotel, so pretty. I love to travel!

  2. Wow!! I'm completely jealous!!!

    My fav thing to do is go to a nice sandy beach and have some handsome bartender bring me fruity drinks with alcohol and complete with an umbrella on top! Of course my gorgeous husband would be there too by eye candy never hurt anybody, right?

  3. Oh, Marian.... sounds like you had a beautiful time! I'm so jealous right now. ;) That hotel looks like a dream. :D

  4. Thanks for sharing your photos, it looks like a very relaxing place. We are also campers, we 'car camp' using a very large tent. We've camped for relaxation all over the US. In a few weeks we will be camping on Cumberland Island, GA, our favorite place to relax. The camp ground is nestled in a live oak forest and the beach is just a short walk down a shady path. Go back to camping, you won't regret it. :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
