Those who make coastal Delaware their year-round residence know that autumn is a real treat at the beach. During the fall, the meters on Rehoboth Avenue don little blue hats that signify a temporary end to parking fees, traffic on Route 1 is a little lighter, and bright orange sunsets are visible from every vantage point. But one of the real treasures of fall is hopping on a bike and riding the Junction and Breakwater trail. Set out on a quick morning adventure and listen to native song birds or watch a blue heron soar majestically above the water. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the contrast of the canal as it meanders through golden grasses against a robin-egg-blue sky. Take an evening ride to Rehoboth for dinner at one of the area’s best restaurants and enjoy a glass of wine with friends. Be sure to bring your camera so you can capture the golden sunset shining through the trees on the trip home. By the way, one of the best kept secrets for new homes with immediate access to the Junction and Breakwater trail is Breakwater by Schell Brothers. Check out the website to find out how you can snatch up one of the few remaining homesites.
