Working backwards from today, Saturday, how sweet to have a day not planned but living it moment by moment, taking that right turn here, stopping there… new places, undiscovered, so close to home yet unexpected.
Already had my coffee at Sbux on the highway but the line of traffic turning off the 1 into Rehoboth was so long I shot out of the lane at the last moment and before I knew it ended up in Dewey Beach.
Finally stopped to see if the Coffee and Books Shop was open, looked inside, very nice and cozy, plenty of furniture, some shop repairs underway it seemed, but nonetheless, closed, I was told till the middle of May, not sure I can trust the source. Will still check back sooner.
About to leave when I thought I would head for the restroom which a sign said was down by the lighthouse at the end of the walkway from the coffee shop. Walked out of there to look at the bay, stepped through a door, and, lo and behold, a crowded restaurant!
I stayed for a Caesar salad and looked out at the bay the whole while, wondering if the host realized how fortunate he was to work there, no matter what his problems were outside of work, he had this bay in front of him at work, it never left his visage.
Headed home from there, but not without snapping some pix along the way. Best part of that is I had no intention of taking pictures today, actually thought it was out of my system. Glad it is not.
Not ready to share the potentially good news from last week though shared it this afternoon in a long chat with Susan Ranky, Manager of the Ocean Gallery, 26 Wilmington Ave in Rehoboth. We have these chats.
Not Monday’s interview with Rutgers University for the Director of Information Technology and Informatics position, which went as well as can be expected on Skype. I would like the job, teaching and admin, good school. A really nice fit and glad the search committee thought so too, enough to interview me. No word yet.
But, something else is brewing, something overdue, on hold at the moment, but we shall see….
Been slipping off the other direction from Dewey to Lewes, too, a lot lately. Two shots immediately above and the one below of downtown Lewes last week. Cross the bridge all the time and finally stopped to shoot some.
So fortunate to have all this within a few miles of where I live, which in and of itself is an amazing place, on the Atlantic, across a canal, nestled between two small lakes….
Boys playing football on the beach this week. Spring is now upon us.
Can you guess which two photos in this post were shot through glass: one through my passenger window, the other through dirty door glass, in that order…? Need a clue? Check them out starting at the top while thinking about our alphabet…. Peace, out.
