29 Apr What To Do With Teens on a Rainy Weekend at the Beach?
We packed sweatshirts and rain jackets because we did not want the crummy weather to interfere with our adventures. We began the day in Lewes, DE, the “First Town in the First State”. Of course we were all hungry already, so we walked down the alley from where we parked and found Nectar, a juice bar and cafe that I had heard great things about. The beverage menu is full of wonderful, healthy concoctions of fresh juices for both kids and adults alike. Nellie ordered the Beauty Balm, Todd had the Dill Pickle Bloody Mary, and I enjoyed the Raspberry Mimosa. The fresh squeezed juices made everything taste so much better! Well now that the beverages had been delivered we had our choice of ordering off the lunch menu or the breakfast menu. SO MANY delicious options; it was tough to decide. The Green Eggs & Ham and Chicken Pot Pie were both very memorable dishes, we just need to go back so we can taste test some more options! After brunch, we walked around the small historic town and spent a good amount of time perusing the shelves at Biblion, the small used book store with some great finds. Back in the car and headed south…[/text_output]
The day in general was a great one, quality time spent having silly and serious conversations with our teens without the interference of any screens makes for great memories all around. I highly suggest exploring the local area, introducing your children to some of the great offerings that surround us. I know it has given me a new appreciation for living on the shore, and I hope to do the same for my children.[/text_output]
