Relax It’s Sunday

Week 1 of the family vacation has come to an end.  This week was loaded with surprises.  We met some amazing people and have had nothing but fun.  According to the wife we are in our happy place and I couldn’t agree more.  From day one we have enjoyed every minute of it and the pace has been nice and slow.  I already feel like I have been here for a month and I can’t wait to do this again next year.

We got down here last Saturday with a crappy down pour and a ton of traffic.  Not the start we were looking for.  We did however get to the house around three unpacked and got settled in.  The cottage is small but feels like the perfect size.  We found it on Home Away last year ( Thanks Paula for opening your home to people).  The best part is that it is less than two houses off the beach, and just two houses down from where I proposed to the wife in nearly 12 years ago.

Sunday the wifes grandparents came down.  They rented places in Dewey for more than IMG_2919.JPG30 years.  A few years ago it got to be a bit to much for their advancing age and ended the tradition.  My wife was hell bent on starting that back up and this is the first year we were able to do it.  So we invited them down for a few days so they could enjoy it with us.  It was perfect and we all had the time of our lives.

The Neighbors have a 6 year old that has been playing wonderfully with the kids and almost eliminated any boredom for the children.  This is huge because as you all know kids can get bored at the greatest places ever.  We hate to see them go on Sunday.

Most days have been spent on the beach but there were two nights where we changed up things a bit.  On Thursday night we took a Sunset cruise on a friends boat to Paradise Grill in Long Neck.  We took the boat from Dewey over to Paradise docked up and had a great night.  We came back home around midnight with the kids fast asleep on the boat.  They have been worn out every night this week.

Friday night we went out on to the beach around 830 pm and had ourselves a bonfire.  If you have never experienced a fire on the beach at night there is nothing like it.  The neighbors came down with their kid and their friends kids  and we all had s’mores and just relaxed.  They left a little early so it was just the family sitting there and enjoying the night.  This was probably one of the most relaxing things I have ever done.  We just sat and talked about the week we already had and then we just watched the girls play.  I don’t even think they know the memories they are making.  The wife and I remind each other all the time on how precious these moments are.


Getting the permit for the fire was easy two just go down to the Dewey Beach Town Hall fill out a piece of paper and put down the deposit of $150 bucks.  If you don’t leave a mess than you will get a $100 back.

I love Dewey and can’t wait to see what happens during week two.  I highly suggest anyone just to come expereince it for a weekend.  You won’t be dissapointed.

 

DOW (Drinks of the Week)

Holy Shit I had a lot of drinks this week.  From Orange crushes, Jameson and Ginger, to St. Bernarbus Wit, and Brother Thelonious.  A battle of the holy beers, with St. Bernarbus Wit easily coming out on top.  That was a damn good beer.  I’ll try to list all of them in some order but there is a good chance I am going to screw this post up.  The biggest reason is that I am drinking now so we will just go with whatever my fat ass hands can type.

I came into this week having picked up two beers that I would try but being on vacation I clearly have had far more than that.  Shock Top and Cage Radler have been my go to beers so far.  Two easy drinking summer beers.  These are the guys I would knock down while relaxing on the screened in porch here at the rental just talking about how relaxing this is and that we will make it an annual tradition.

Brother Thelonious and St. Bernarbus we two very different beers with the St. Bernarbus coming out on top.  This was a sweet beer and I think that it just fit in a bit better for the setting I was in.  I don’t match my beers with my food but with the good times I am having.  Summer brings out more of the sweeter beers like the Wits.  So in good fashion I will be picking this one up again.  I highly suggest it ro all.

Enjoying Dewey is easy all you have to do is show up and a party is going to break out. Each turn you take there is a place that is offering great drinks and great times.  This week there have been five places that I have enjoyed and I think you will all enjoy them as well.

#1.  This is a no brainer and most reading this are going to say no shit but The Starboard  is one of the greatest bars ever created by the beach gods.  I don’t believe this was built by man it is to mythical and to amazing to have been the creation of a mere mortal.

#2.  Listen if you want to relax, people watch, and enjoy some amazing beers you have to stop into the Dewey Beer Company.  I had three beers from there and bought up some swag, the buzz forced me to do it.  The beers in ranking order from Dewey Beer Company would be #1 Citra Wit #2 Social Kolsch #3 Summer Saison.  All awesome beers.

#3  Que Pasa offers some amazing outdoor seating where kids can go and play and you can eat some awesome wings, or the Mussels with Chorizo.  I enjoyed a wonderful Day Blazer and just chilled.

#4 Surf Side Bar  is a great pit stop for some good drinks and fun times.  On a walk from Dewey Town Hall I popped in just to grab a Sam’s Summer Ale to take the heat off.  They look small from the outside but the bar is deep and the good times are even deeper.

#5  Paradise Grill is off the charts fun.  Look this place is huge, has the best atmosphere for the family.  This place is bayside so it will either take a bit of a drive to get there, or my preferred method a night boat trip where you can dock at the place.  They have plenty of beers decent food and some good bands that play.
