On the drive from Williamsburg to Laurel, DE we got to experience our first HUGE bridge and tunnel. We had to pull over to turn off our propane before we could go into it but other than that, it was pretty easy. When we were at Trap pond we explored Rehoboth Beach and the park actually had bikes that we could take and use...so Eli was able to experience his first bike ride! He loved it! We didn't explore a ton around this area...just because there wasn't a ton to do...and it rained a few days so we watched movies, went for walks, played at the park, worked and relaxed.
Dan also had to perfect his parking skills as the spot they had advertised on their website was NOT big enough for a 40 foot RV....but he did it! It was really our only option because it was Memorial Day weekend. Our fault for waiting til the last minute...duh.
We were able to meet up with another one of our coaches, Laurie & Trey and their kiddos. They treated us to an incredible day in Easton...breakfast at their favorite coffee shop, shopping at the fish market and amish market, boat ride, ferry ride and then dinner at an all you can eat crab place so Dan could learn the ropes from Trey about how to eat those suckers. It's complicated...and I don't like to work so hard to get such a small piece of meat. I'm lazy...so I chose to get scallops instead. Haha!
We visited almost all of the major monuments...a couple museums and Arlington Cemetery. My favorite part was on our last day there we had planned to go to the Holocaust Museum. However, we didn't realize you needed to get tickets ahead of time for the main exhibit...and all the day passes were gone by the time we got there. SUPER sad face. We figured we would just go in and take a look around. As we walked in I said a little prayer that we'd be able to get into the permanent exhibit and suddenly this woman walks up to us and asks if we have tickets. She had 2 extra that would let us into the exhibit right then...with no waiting (which was a huge blessing because Eli was sleeping)!! SO cool. He did end up waking up halfway through, but that's OK. It was SO worth it.
Stay tuned for our NYC adventures!!
