Pot Nets

Snip from Goggle Earth
Pot-Nets is a huge collection of communities under one management that are either directly on Rehoboth Bay, near Millsboro, DE, or with easy access to the bay. They are called Lakeside, Creekside, Bayside, Dockside, and Seaside. Jean’s brother and sister-in-law live there, and we were supposed to fit in a visit during our stay at Pine Haven Campground.

The forecast for the day was for strong storms, heavy lightning, and some with upwards of 60-mph winds. It was time for a visit. When we called to make sure they would be home, Ruth was thoughtful enough to insist that we bring our laundry, and thus another problem was solved. We had a very nice visit, did the laundry, and headed for Subway for dinner. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot, the skies cut loose with a blinding deluge that trapped us in the car for while. With a short lull, we rushed for the restaurant, but still got wet. The storm finally let up and we headed back north to Pine Haven.

The evening just called for some ice cream, so we stopped at an ice cream shop in Milton. We walked in, and the prices on the hand-written board took my breath away. We left. It wasn’t until later that we learned that the reason for the high prices was that it was homemade, hand-dipped ice cream. Still, we drove on back to Milford and had our evening treat at the DQ, where we got two large cones for the price of one single-dip cone of homemade.
