Rehobeth Beach Daytrip

So as part of our plan to get out and be(feel) more human, we took a weekend trip to Rehobeth Beach in Delaware this Saturday because "it's better than Ocean City", which is closer, but does totally suck, real bad. This place was about as touristy and overcrowed as O.C., but without the gambling, Ripley's museum, and overwhelming urge to murder everyone within reach.

(R: It's not as trashy as OC either.)

After laying out (R: Nick is looking like a lobster from the neck down!) and watching the beach fill to capacity for about 2 hours, we walked around and found a place that we thought might have fried fish sandwiches (R: They had one.), the Purple Parrot, which had that lame beach party themed open air bar thing going—but to my surprise, they had cold beer, huge sandwiches, good service and the best fries we ever had.

We waited around til 3 for the once a day Dogfish Head Brewery tour, which Rose thought (correctly) that I would enjoy, the website gives all the info, minus the fact that the restaurant is not the brewery, come to find out, which is 10 miles outside of town. So now what? ...Duty-free outlet shopping, Delaware's only marketable natural resource. The deal is, as long as you spend at least $120 you will get back the 10 or so dollars in tolls it takes to get there. I bought $5 worth of hot sauce, so Rose, picking up the slack, came back with this...

Behold, $170 worth of Majestic Yellow dream mixer, in all it's refurbished and discounted glory.
