Friday night- Roger declared that he wanted to celebrate his Birthday and drive to Pittsburg for the day, to do some hiking and wanted to ride the Dusquesne Incline. Pittsburg is about 3.5 hours from Harrisburg, so I agreed and we planned to leave at 6:30 am.
Saturday morning- Roger woke me up at 7:00 and told me that he wanted to drive to Rehoboth instead and hike at Cape Henlopen in Delaware. I got up and went, even though Rehoboth is still 3.5 hours from Harrisburg, and we were already 1 hour behind.
Got on the road and picked up a large coffee for the road trip.

We arrived at Cape Henlopen around 12:30pm and walked on the beach, which was mostly empty, because it was cold, windy and the end of January! It was beautiful! This was my first time ever visiting the beach in a winter month, where the weather is cold. I visited South Beach with Roger in 2013, but Florida is so warm that it doesn't count as having a winter.

We then hiked the area nearby, around the lake. We hiked for 1 hour, the park was really nice, I have a hard time getting into a hike when all the trees are bare... BUT, the area was so much different from hiking in Pennsylvania, and we got to see a huge flock of seagulls and two deer.
After the hike, we drove to Rehoboth and grabbed lunch at a small Thai Restaurant. It was delicious!

We Love Rehoboth, and we have to visit our favorite spots whenever we are there. So we went to the book store BrowseAbout Books. Where I moved the copy of Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson to the Staff Picks section. I then made a giant stack of books I wanted to buy, but put them all back, because my bank account didn't agree with the size of the stack. I'm also not allowed to go into bookstores with Roger, because I make too many book suggestions.
I found this in one of the shops, will need to remember it if the PTO(A) ever asks for anything.
We drove back, and had the strangest YouTube roulette game ever... we played country music! Roger and I each picked a country song, and we both sang, *very loudly* to Amaze by Lone Star and Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. I am not big on Country music, I didn't grow up here, I can do my Mexican Country Music, no problem... Can sing Banda Mobil, Vicente Fernandez, Los Tigres del Norte, but I surprised myself, by knowing more than 10 country songs! We shall never speak of this moment again!
How was YOUR weekend? What is your favorite country song?
