The Perfect Evening for a Stroll

Have you ever explored Gordon’s Pond in Rehoboth Beach?

Last week my husband and I discovered this beautiful nature trail right at sunset.

Overlooking Gordon’s Pond. If you look closely you can see the towers on the beach.

The view from the look out platform. At Sunset this is the perfect spot to see the Atlantic. This is also a favorite to bird watchers!

Looking west toward Cape Henlopen State Park the sun goes in for the evening.

As we were leaving the ducks were enjoying themselves in the twilight colors of the sunset.



A unique day trip

By Christina Harvey, in travel

Are you looking for something different to do on a pretty Summer day? Be sure to check out a very unique spot on the out skirts of Milton. This little day trip is something you should absolutely put on your to do list.  I really enjoyed the gift shop, labyrinth  and award winning dahlias.

To experience the ambiance of Provence, France without investing the time and expense, treat yourself to a day at Lavender Fields Farm in Milton.   Wander through blooming rows of purple lavender, enjoy the beauty of the sweet-smelling herb, pick your own bouquet of flowers, and rest under a canopy of trees.

The flavors, fragrances and healing qualities of this amazing purple flower will be all around you.  Bring along a basket and gather your own fresh cut flowers in the fields, perhaps providing a unique hostess gift for an upcoming party.  Check out the quaint cottage store which offers everything from potted plants to scented soaps, or attend one of a dozen demonstrations on lavender’s many uses in the farm’s restored nineteenth century barn.

The Lavender Fields Labyrinth is a special treat with a historic background.  It’s an exact duplicate of the labyrinth embedded in the floor of the Cathedral of Chartres (Notre-Dame de Chartres Cathedral). The Chartres Cathedral is located about 80 km from Paris and was dedicated on October 24, 1260. It has eleven circuits, is 42 feet in diameter and a half mile journey to walk both in and out.  Exploring this Delaware wonder is great exercise for body and soul.

On your way home from Lavender Fields, stop at Hopkins Farm Creamery for farm made ice cream. This local dairy farm with on-site creamery was voted among the 2010 Best of Delaware.  It’s sure to be a hit with the grandkids.

I can’t wait to check out the Lewes Day trip that suggested next! Look for my next post.
