Saturday Snapshot 5/13: Delaware Beach & Vermont

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.

I have missed a couple of Saturday Snapshots because I was traveling the past two weekends (that's a lot for me!), so I thought I'd share a few photos from those trips before I get back to finishing my National Park photo series.

Two weekends ago, I traveled just a couple of hours away, to the Delaware beaches with my two closest friends, where we enjoyed a girls' weekend - we visited Cape Henlopen State Park at the beach, toured Fort Miles in the park (they had a special open house that weekend), ate crabs, kayaked on a creek that feeds into the bay...and talked a LOT!

Last weekend, I went to Booktopia for the second time, an annual event held at Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT. No nature photos from that weekend, but a couple of pics to show you what a wonderful little town Manchester is. My full Booktopia summary is coming up later this week.

Northshire Bookstore - an incredible bookstore & well worth the trip!

 Hope you are enjoyed a lovely weekend!


  1. Looks like a great weekend getaway. Your breakfast photo made me hungry! Hope you had a terrific time.

    1. Oh those breakfasts were amazing! And thanks, both weekends were a lot of fun.

  2. I've actually never been kayaking- your picture reminded me of my need to go kayaking!

    1. Oh, kayaking is SO much fun! The best part is that you get to places you couldn't normally get to and see so much wildlife!

  3. Looks like you had a great break. Those crabs look delicious.

    1. Thanks, Ginx! They were delicious!
