A Winter Weekend Getaway

Last weekend my husband and I spent a delightfully relaxing weekend in Rehoboth, Delaware.

We stayed at a gorgeous hotel called
The Boardwalk Plaza.

They had a special weekend package called
 "Cozy Winter Weekend."

And it was!

We both left work a little early on Friday, and were on our way to Delaware by early afternoon. I love long drives. Gary does the driving, and I do the knitting/crocheting. This way I don't tell him how to drive, and we both arrive peacefully at our destination.

I am presently working on this blanket. I'm making mine in blue for a special little baby boy.

Check out the magazine too. 

We arrived at The Boardwalk Plaza around 6:00 p.m. We went to the front desk to register, and look at the gorgeousness that greeted us! I was happy happy happy from the moment we walked in.

Friday night we ate at The Pub inside the hotel. I had a delicious glass of Howling Moon Pinot Noir. Gary enjoyed a beer. Our burgers and salad were scrumptious. Service was impeccable.

This sign is in the hotel lobby and elegant it was. 

Saturday morning we woke up to this view.

We were on the move early. This is very rare for us. We usually like to linger over coffee for a few hours. 

We found a wonderful place to have breakfast called The Point Coffee House and Bake Shoppe. Oh, my! Delicious! Delicious! Delicious!

Yes! They roasted their own coffee! Amazing! I want to move to Rehoboth just so I can have coffee there everyday. 

Saturday was cold and snowy, but we toured the area and stopped at some wonderful shops. Everyone was so warm and friendly. It as such a pleasant day.

By 4:00 we were back at our cozy hotel drinking hot coffee for Gary, hot chocolate for me and eating mini almond joy cakes. They weren't so mini, and they were absolutely decadent. Yum! 

At 7:00 it was dinner here while listening to piano and cello music. Pure delight! The food, oh my goodness! I had the crispy duck and Gary had the steak. Delectable!!! And guess what wine was suggested to go with my duck - yep! Howling Moon Pinot Noir! 

I videotaped some of the beautiful music. Gary didn't realize I was taping it, and he started to fuss with the dinner bill. That's the funny crinkling sound.

Sadly, Sunday we had to leave this view. We agreed that the next time we will stay one more night. 
Is one more night ever enough? 

So we said our good byes for now, but we will be back. We will definitely be back.
