TEYSHA TOUR: REHOBOTH BEACH
We’re on the move again, exploring the vibrancy of the east coast! For lunch, we ate at Dog Fish Brewery, which keeps earth weird by serving up things like vanilla bean and rosemary soda, bratwurst with beet ketchup and blueberry chutney, and hanging framed photos on the ceiling. We stopped for the night at The Summer Place Inn in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, a place close to the shore with big sunflowers outside and an old piano inside.
Rehoboth is soaked with charm. The town has it’s own little coffeeshop, bookstore, and grocery, filled with fresh croissants, live lobsters, and specialty gelato. We walked a brick path down to the cold ocean, and passed people snoozing on their screened in porches, abandoned lemonade stands, and clover-peppered lawns.
For dinner, we ate raw Delaware oysters and pistachio encrusted barrumundi with wasabi mayo, and then wandered to a fudge shop for some salted chocolate fudge. We walked the boardwalk, which glittered at night next to the dark emptiness of the sea, and found a little amusement park full of summer vacationers.
This trip we’ve found again and again that straying from highways and the main route leads to the discovery of the best adventures. The earth is full of back roads and unmarked paths, and we should all be explorers!
