Last weekend we went to Lewes, Delaware with my husband’s family. It was great to catch up with everyone and have a bit of rest and relaxation. Lewes is a beautiful little town, actually the first settled in Delaware. There are a handful of little shops, and wonderful restaurants that we enjoy visiting each year. It seems like it is straight out of Gilmore Girls. If you are in the area be sure to put it on your list. We stayed all day on Monday to soak up all the sun and were treated to a beautiful drive home. The perfect ending to a great weekend!
Sadly I was not very good about snapping photos this weekend. But thought I would mention a few of our favorite things to do when we are in Lewes.
we ate at…
Agave - fantastic Mexican, wish that we had a location in Baltimore. We always have relaxing flavorful meals here. Start off with a tequila flight, or margarita. Be sure to try some fresh guacamole. I had the fish tacos, JP sampled the chicken mole enchiladas. Both were fresh and beautifully presented. I should also mention the amazing black beans. They are perfect. I could eat them everyday for lunch and be happy! We were surprised and excited to see an addition to the restaurant from the last time we are there. You now walk into a small little market area where you can take home some fresh salsa, or desserts made in small jars for the perfect take home treat.
Half Full – great pizza. The family always gets take out pizza the first night at the shore. This year we decided to try a new place and I am so happy we did. With pizzas like the Dublin Pig and Corn and Crab it is hard to go wrong. The Dublin Pig was possibly my favorite. With dubliner cheese, slow cooked pork, granny smith apples, and a balsamic glaze it is hard to go wrong.
Kindle – a sister restaurant to Half Full and local favorite Striper Bites means that you are going to have a great meal. We stumbled into Kindle for lunch on Sunday when JP was getting a bit hangry and it was the closest restaurant. So happy that we did! With a menu serving seasonal american fare it is just what we needed. I had a wonderful fish BLT, and some of the best french fries that I have ever eaten. JP had the Dublin Pig, a huge pork sandwich on a butter brioche bun. The sandwich version of the pizza it is not to be missed. We will be going back again next year for sure!
Cape Henlopen State Park – a beautiful state park with walking trails, a WW II lookout tower that provides 360 views, and beaches. Just a quick walk, bike or car ride from where we stay this is one of our favorite places. I would recommend packing a picnic and going to the beach around 6pm for a leisurely dinner and evening swim.
