Woodland Beach, Delaware

pierYesterday I had a request from a buyer to see a property in a tiny town on the Delaware Bay.  Woodland Beach was known prior to 1878 for amusements and frolicking at the beach. Then a tidal wave knocked out 35 miles of waterfront towns. 

 mallardsToday, Woodland Beach is known for fishing and crabbing. One of the yearlong residents has been feeding these ducks for so long that they have their own road warning.

The long drive there from nearby Smyrna is lined with flat farmland. The closer you get to Woodland, the road becomes more like a causeway mallardswith tidal waters on either side. Due to recent rains, the water comes almost up to the roadway and there are signs warning not to continue if the yellow light is flashing a flooding warning.  But yesterday, the roads were clear and a pleasant drive ensued.

Grant-That includes this forgotten spot (except to fishing and crabbing enthusiasts).

That's a lovely beach, Carolyn.  It has provides a tranquilizing view.  I haven't been to the ocean in 2 years.  I plan to do something about that soon.
