We put our noodles to good use today. The ocean temperature is warmest in August through the end of September of course, with the inlet buoy to Assawoman Bay to our south reporting 77 degrees, Lewes at 76, perfect for floating just outside the surf. We later rinsed off at Star of the Sea’s convenient outdoor stalls (your front door key opens the stalls), and then headed downtown for burgers and frozen custard.
Looking back over the summer, May was a loss (Delaware closed its borders), but we’ve been fully booked ever since. Some businesses in town have done really well, while others have been hit pretty hard. It may take a year to understand the economic impact overall.
But for those that could make it, this has been an outstanding summer. Sitting on the beach ourselves today, we benefited from smaller crowds on the boardwalk, and plenty of room to spread out on the beach. We also felt safe; mask compliance in general was nearly 100%.
And of course our balcony in Star of the Sea Unit 807 continues to be one of the best vantages for enjoying cool sea breezes, gorgeous sunrises, and shady sunsets. If you haven’t booked yet, there’s a week available in September as of this writing, due to a cancellation. And Rehoboth Beach is truly magical in the fall.
