Lucky to live close enough to the beach for day trips, we headed down to Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware. We chose the State Park because dogs are allowed on some of the beaches: The Point and Herring Point.
We spent our time at Herring Point- the southern part of the park. On a cool cloudy weekday, the beach was mostly empty. Some people showed up to take photographs on the stone jetty and then leave. The white foaming sea and expansive stretch of empty sand under cloudy grey skies gave the place a surreal feeling. I enjoyed my moments of silence, cushioned from the world by the white noise of the crashing waves. Families of surfers pulled into the parking lot as we made our way back to our car late afternoon. We left feeling serene and refreshed and will surely be back.
