A Seaside Holiday

Many English vacations are spent at the seaside.  I picture Pride and Prejudice’s scene whereupon the young ladies wish to go to Brighton.

My family and I recently spent a week at the beach- not Brighton, but Bethany Beach in Delaware, USA.   It is our favorite vacationing spot and we enjoyed it immensely again this year.

There is something special about sea air.  I love it- I even love the smell of the seafood shops (my son gags).  I spent many an evening sitting at the shoreline with my father who we also included in our trip.

The walks on the beach, wading in cold sea water, collecting shells (and a mysterious crustacean), watching the ships both on the horizon and the closer ones- it was so different from my green Ohio’s hot and sticky season.
