    December 9. The MSM mounted two one-act operas: I Due Timidi by Nino Rota and Suor Angelica by Puccini. The sets, acting and voices were superb  – an infinitely better experience than the Met’s from the back of the Family Circle. We were enthralled.

Rehoboth Beach via The Cape May Ferry

Last week we met up with Susan and Craig for four days of R & R at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. Christine wanted to drive via the Cape May ferry — something she had not done before. The weather was warm and bright —  perfect for a boat ride — it took just over an hour to get to Lewes, in Delaware. A very enjoyable trip.

From Lewes, it is a ten-mile drive to Rehoboth Beach where Susan had booked us a room next to hers in the Sandcastle Motel. It is a very slow ten miles because the greater part of the route is through a continuous series of strip-malls requiring 14 sets of traffic lights in seven miles! The sun was too strong for me to stay long at the beach. I walked around the lake in the leafy shade of the local park; ate oysters, mussels and clams at several of the local restaurants and wound up with a fun evening at Rehoboth’s amusement arcade. Susan and I share the same passion when it comes to skeeball, cranes and whack-a-mole. My eye is not as efficient as it used to be, but I did manage to lift out a stuffed Kermit doll with one of the cranes and I successfully whacked a rubber frog  onto a floating lily pad to  be rewarded with a stuffed snake! (Susan has posted a video clip of this event on her Facebook page).

Strange name but a perfect place to relax

A passing visitor was so impressed by our relaxed disposition, that she asked to take this photo of us!
