2016 done!!

Hello my wife and I just retired after 33 years in public education on July 1. We sold our home in NJ and move to DE beaches on the same day to our home we built 7 years ago. Getting adjusted to "the new normal" and enjoying the beach and lots of visitors this summer.

We are just south of Rehoboth but 3 miles inland. After living through Sandy that is close enough. Tons of building going on down here all filled with transplants who want to be near the beach. My real estate taxes for the year are $1100

Oh that sounds close enough to me too. Would be nice to bike to the beach, but not be in harms way. We're hoping to get down to Reboboth next weekend for a day trip. We'll go a litter further to explore. Then fight the traffic back home to NJ.
