Surf Avenue in Rehoboth Beach ran all the way along the beachfront many decades ago. Storms eventually took it out. This is where Surf now turns inland just north of the Henlopen Hotel - a place always vulnerable to high seas.
Even after Sandy there's plenty of beach left in Rehoboth. This photograph looks north from Prospect Street at the south end of the Boardwalk - usually the widest section of Rehoboth's beach.
One of the roughest looking buildings in Rehoboth after Sandy is this house on First Street in the north end of town. Fortunately it's meant to look like this - in the earliest stages of restoration.
In Lewes, on the beach side of town on Market Street, if you have a place called the Bluewater House you might expect it to be surrounded occasionally by saltwater.
Market Street on the beach in Lewes is in one of the lowest lying areas of town and takes its good old time draining. This photograph looks northeastward toward the beach, just west of the intersection with Massachusetts Avenue.
