There’s a whole lot that’s fishy about the fire that destroyed an Episcopal church in Ocean City last week. If you haven’t heard, the church caught on fire when a man who was himself on fire (!?) ran into the rectory of St. Paul’s by the Sea last Tuesday morning. It only gets stranger from there.

Beach House: Cool And Contemporary in Rehoboth, 1 1/2 Blocks From Ocean

2 Written by: | Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 10:07am

Hot House: 112 Norfolk Street, Rehoboth, Delaware 19971


Wood frame, two-story, detached beach house with vinyl siding, built in 2005. Six bedrooms and seven baths, 3,500 sq. feet. Full finished basement, sunroom, outdoor deck and .13 acre lot. Central air, outdoor shower, off street parking: $1,599,000


What: In July, we dream of beach houses. Number 112 Norfolk Street in Rehoboth is an airy, open-plan house, built in 2005, that’s been gently used and still feels like new. There’s nothing amazing or remarkable about it – kitchen is smallish, there are no awesome views — but this close to the beach, where every square foot counts, houses can be a little claustrophobic, and 112 is not. The interior photos here don’t really do it justice. There are hardwood and tile floors, hallways are wide, ceilings are high. It’s all light and clean, and because the bones are good, a little decorating would go a long way. Several of the six bedrooms are quite small,  but with some bunk beds, there is plenty of room for your whole family. Most important, especially for teenagers and grandparents, lots of bathrooms. The walk to the beach is pleasant, with no busy streets to cross. Read More →

Are You Afraid of the Bay Bridge?

3 Written by: | Wednesday, May 29, 2013 11:18am


I am known to get a little white-knuckled and superstitious when driving across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The rails are low, the shore seems distant, and it’s easy to imagine my car careening off the side and landing with a splash in the waters below. But the idea of paying someone $25 to shuttle me across — as several thousand people apparently do every year, according to the New York Times — never once occurred to me.
