Where Am I? Is it October?

Feels more like July here at the beach, and this weekend makes it feel even more so. Temperatures in the 80s! Highway traffic jams. Bumper-to-bumper traffic in town. Scarce available parking. Beach is welcoming and crowded and shops & galleries are doing great business thanks to the Fall Sidewalk Sales.

Other activities around town are also drawing big crowds. The Buddy Walk for folks with Down Syndrome was well attended. (The restaurant is a sponsor and offers discounts to all participants) It's Greyhound owners weekend, too so Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach have literally gone to the dogs.  The beautiful, gentle  creatures are everywhere. I love to see them promenade down the streets or boardwalk and watch the kids pet them and thrill at their size.

As if that wasn't enough to make our collective heads spin, there is a huge annual Christmas show and sale that draws shoppers from 4 states who want to get a jump on their shopping for unique handmade items for those on their list who "have everything".  If you get my drift.

Sunday will feature a 5K race for yet another charity and since Columbus Holiday is celebrated Monday, this will be a busy town (and restaurant) through Monday evening.

So far, everyone has been relaxed and congenial, but that may change overnight if the weather does, as storms move in and threaten to send temperatures plummeting 30'F by morning.

I considered stopping for Happy Hour after my shift, but I didn't have an umbrella, so the threat of rain propelled me homeward before the skies opened up - which they did as I approached the building.  It's been a steady downpour ever since.

It's cocktail time!!!

And so it goes.
