the beach, 2005
ian is trailer trash
ian and i spent thursday evening through saturday evening at cape henlopen state park in delaware. camping at cape henlopen is a pretty special event for us-it's much nicer to go to a state park's beach than the over commercialized boardwalked beaches and we've been going every year since 2002. that first time we went just happened to be the weekend ian decided to tell me he had a crush on me. i have been going to cape henlopen with family for even longer, and camped there with niff, rachie, and libby last year for my bachelorette party. so... without getting too mushy, it's a good place to go.
we didn't camp exactly. we slept in a tent and had a campsite alright, and i have twenty-some bugbites to prove that. however, we barely used our camping gear and went out to eat for every meal. camping about seven minutes from route 1 and rehobeth beach tends to lend itself to luxury (lazy ass) camping for two people.

(by the way, i happen to love my kelty tent. it's awesome to have a place to hide from the crazy bloodthirsty bugs while still getting to enjoy the view above.)
the view from above
though i wouldn't say we camped, we did keep ourselves occupied. beyond the beach, we did succumb to commercialism and saw wedding crashers and went to rehobeth beach's boardwalk. we took a few walks through the dunes and went to the lookout tower to see what new graffiti has been left on the ground and on the tower itself.
