Peg's Cove - Lewes, Delaware

Lewes, Delaware (pronounced Lewis) is a small beach community between Delaware Bay and the Atlantic, directly across from Cape May, New Jersey. Cape Henlopen State Park is there, which was Fort Miles during the 2nd World War. It is a charming town surrounded by nature.

My friend Peggy moved there ten years ago from Pennsylvania. Peggy and I worked together for nearly 20 years, and she finally retired at the beginning of this year after 40 years with Mobil Oil and ExxonMobil! And Peggy has made a smooth transition to retired life.

Portia and I camped at Cape Henlopen State Park for a night since it is such a popular park, and that was all I could get. Luckily, we have a friend with a home and a beautiful, nice, flat driveway. So we camped at Peg's Cove and now a temporary RV park. We enjoyed chatting about the Mobil and XOM days and everyone we know. I could even catch up with Jeff Irwin and Pat D, who live in the area. Portia and Peggy's dog, Spunky, also had a great time together!

Peggy's energy is contagious. She is always upbeat and grateful for everything. And she was excellent at every job; she was all in all the time. And it's not that she hasn't experienced some tragic events in her life. But as we all know, if you live in this world, there is pain in the circumstances we sometimes find ourselves in, but what's important is that the circumstances don't dictate your life; that's up to you; it's your choice. Peggy chooses to live life to its fullest!

Thanks, my friends! And thank you, Peggy, for a truly memorable visit!
