Dewey Beach 2012 – Vacation Home

Posted by lori . 13 Comments


We just finished up a wonderful vacation in Dewey Beach, Delaware with our friends.

We rented a vacation home that would accommodate 4 two-leggers and 6 four-leggers.

This is the same house we rented last year.

This year, we added four days to our vacation so we could enjoy the area and get in a little more rest and relaxation.

There was plenty of room for us.

And it was “pet-friendly.”

We especially appreciated a fenced backyard for the pups’ bathroom breaks.

Being there made me think about how nice it is to live with less.

It was a lovely place.

Daily Inspiration


Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.

    Funny that you mentioned how it made you think about living with less… As I was brought back to reality with unpacking and laundry I really looked around and thought about how stuff is stuff… The best part of vacation was time with friends, cuddles with dogs, seeing the sun come up, yummy food, discovering new things, and most importantly being present. Several days later I really am still reevaluating how to prioritize in these elements more. So much of what we fill life with is habit, or distractions to get us through. I’d love to see you take this topic further because you always make me think.

    The house looks really lovely. I think the life I am living now makes me live in the “now”. I have always been a big planner. That has been taken away from me because I don’t know for sure where I will be from one month to the next. I think it is good for me because I really focus on the now and not tomorrow as much. Yes, living with less is a great way to live. It doesn’t mean that you are doing with out. I think it means you utilize everything you have. Some day soon, I hope to have my house set up the way our RV is and we only have the things we need. It is a very freeing feeling for me. 🙂

  • Oh that looks so nice Lori, what a beautiful house!
    The dogs have made themselves at home. 🙂

    What a beautiful house to relax in for vacation. Missed Dewey this year, but would love to attend next year.

  • Enough room for 6 BigDogs. Incredible. It looks very comfy. Funny you should mention the living with less bit. I feel that way in holiday rentals too. I often wonder what it would be like to live in a hotel room. I think there’s a newsreader here who does that or used to anyway. Maybe one day.

  • What a lovely little place!

    Wow that is lovely. Kind of bigger than our little cottage in Wales! Deccy x

    Living with less…that sounds peaceful, just like your vacation looks. Enjoy your vacation.

    What a great place! When we went together, not just me traveling with a friend, we always rented a house there, too. It just makes life so much easier!

    That place looks absolutely beautiful and so inviting and relaxing!

  • Maybe I should do Dewey Beach one of these days. Great place to stay and the photos of the beach in another post are beautiful!
