Where to begin? It’s been a wild ride getting here. We left Friday at 9 am and didn’t get into Chesapeake until about 6:30 pm. Traffic was wild, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Philly and Delaware 1 was bumper to bumper until past Bethany Beach.
We crashed at the Hyatt in Chesapeake last night. I was pleased with the hotel room. We slept in hard this morning and left at 11:30 for Avon. Coming down 158 was wild. Traffic leaving OBX was bumper to bumper for at least 20 miles around noon today. I’ll bet it takes 4-5 hours to get back to Chesapeake when you’re leaving. I’ll want to research an alternate route for going home at the end of the week.
We stopped at Wave’s Deli for lunch. Masking was 100% compliant and they were BUSY! Was funny to see a dude barefoot, no shirt, just swim trunks in a surgical mask. Made me laugh. I had the Reuben and it was an awesome sandwich. They do not disappoint. Also well stocked with plenty of craft beer, an excellent selection. Found my Mango Tango Foxtrot.
Anyway we got to the house at 3:00 pm, found my house keeper (no mask and gave him 40$) and he stayed till about 5 pm and I’m happy with the cleaning. Only issue with the house is that my washer is filled with water and won’t drain. I’ll need to put in a work order for that in the morning.
Anyway, we got settled and made beds and unpacked some and headed for the beach. Not very busy here beach wise today, we’ll see how that holds up. Mace is a crazy person without his brother and broke my mom’s toe. Pretty swollen and very black and blue and getting worse. Tomorrow I need to hit a pharmacy so we can buddy tape it. She is taking it like a champ.
We did the grocery run around 6:30 and went to the Avon food lion. What a mess. I’d say 90% mask compliance and the place was PACKED. We got out as soon as we could and will try Connors for more supplies tomorrow.
Trying to get take out for dinner took a while. Oceana’s, the pizza joint here and the one I’m Buxton has busy tones until 8:30.
Finally got through to Oceana’s and they were graciously able to get me a take order for 9:00 pm. Whoever told me to try the blackened tuna griller, thanks so much!! That was awesome.
Its Labor Day Weekend, Philly, NJ, DE, MD from Friday AM until Tuesday morning traffic will be heavy. Moved my son down to Arlington, Va Saturday morning, driving 95 south from PA was great, coming back Saturday afternoon northbound traffic was horrible
