Delaware Seashore State Park

The Delaware Seashore State Park includes six miles of pristine ocean and bay shoreline and is one of Delaware's most popular destinations. The eastern side of the park borders the Atlantic Ocean and the western side borders the Rehoboth and Indian River Bays. The photos you will see in this hub were all taken on a fall day by Gail Sobotkin, this hub's author, when the park was sparsely populated with people because the multitude of summer tourists were, for the most part, gone until the next summer although some visitors will return on weekends when they can attend special activities. The park is open from 8 a.m. to sunset year-round and from March 1 through November modest daily fees are in effect. In fall the park is a nature and wild life photographer's paradise as it is home to many species of birds that use it as a resting and feeding ground on their southern migration.

Attending fall lectures hosted by the park is a great way to increase one's knowledge about the region. Some of the topics that were already presented or will be presented are:

"The Great Monarch Migration" which occurs every autumn as millions of monarch butterflies begin their southward migration and travel up to 100 miles a day until they complete their 2,000 mile journey. This lecture teaches the attendees about an international research project to catch, tag and release these beautiful insects. Some visitors may even be able to tag a monarch. The lecture is appropriate for all ages.

"Edible Plants of the Seashore" is a monthly lecture series that occurs on weekends from October through May. This program is held indoors and introduces attendees to a variety of plants that are native to coastal Delaware including beach plum, prickly pear and sea lettuce. These lectures are also appropriate for all ages and participants will be given cooking tips for salads, soups, jams and jellies and will also be able to sample a few edibles.

"Lantern Tours" are another popular weekend monthly lecture series from October through May that all ages will enjoy. It is held outside in the early evening when temperatures can be quite cold, especially in the winter months so it is important to dress warmly. Participants enjoy a unique, guided lantern tour of the Indian River Life-Saving Station museum. The tour guide is dressed in turn-of-the -century Life-Saving Service patrol clothing and will tell visitors about the hard work and life-threatening perils that surf-men of the U.S. Life-Saving Service faced to save shipwreck victims off the Delaware coast. There are many tales of tragic maritime stories that will enthrall visitors.

Those who enjoy crafts can participate in special programs such as "Sailor's Valentines" where attendees learn how to make crafts using nature materials found at the seashore. The very special "valentines" are made from mosaics of tropical shells mounted in a wooden frame or box just like sailors of olden days made and gave to their sweethearts.

The rest of this hub will consist of nature photos, some with Haiku poems that the author of this hub created. Hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to visit Delaware Seashore State Park in the future.

Oh Gail...I so wish I was there~ What fantastic shots - what kind of camera do you use? All the shots are just right on and so gorgeous....my favorite is the shifting sands and the beach. But then again, the bubbles are so unique!

Excellent poems and wonderfully put together. Especially love your beautiful pictures....voted up across the board~

What a wonderful hub filled with great photos and good information as well as your poetry. Those lectures sound terrific. I would enjoy each and every one of them. All the up votes except funny!

Hi HBN, You have done another outstanding Hub! I had to go back and look at your beautiful photos for the third time. I have a real love for the Butterfly. I'd love to see the Monarchs when they are released. I live near the ocean, but I've never seen this foam that you captured. I voted you UP, etc. etc. (Hope the judges agree)


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful

Like Mary, I love the foam. It makes me think of mermaids and lost love. The photos are beautiful, so clear and well cropped. And I like Haiku very much. Telling a story in so few words is an art indeed. A VERY fine Hub you have here.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Peggy,

So glad that you liked it. I think we're both great fans of National and State Parks and anything to do with nature and history! To me the parks are truly treasures and some of the least expensive places to visit.

One of the most interesting lectures I went to was about sea glass. Quite fascinating and then you could go to the beach and start looking for some!

Thanks for your feedback and vote up. It's greatly appreciated.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Mary,

So glad that you enjoyed it. We don't always have the foam either, it just happened to be particularly abundant that day so I got lucky. Your Florida beaches are amazing and always so clean. Our sand is much more coarse and of course the water temperatures are much cooler here, even in summer, but the beaches are still wonderful.

Thanks for the vote up and all your support. I'll be coming your way later.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Hyphenbird,

Oh wow, mermaids and lost love - now there's a magical story. Maybe you should just meditate on the pictures and see what comes up. In your skilled hands that could be amazing.

So glad you liked the hub and Haiku and I very much appreciate the kind words.

Sending Hub Hugs.

Hi again Gail,

My aunt and uncle who lived not far from the shores of Lake Michigan had quite a collection of sea glass. Guess it should have been called Great Lakes glass. It was quite beautiful when seen as a collection.

Hi Peggy,

My neighbor makes beautiful jewelry out of it. I just put it in a glass vase as sunlight reflects off the glass and is really pretty.

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi b. Malin,

So glad you liked the hub and photos. There was a seagull in the parking lot that made me think of you and the animal stories you write cause it was just him and me and he was following me around as I snapped photos of the pavilion. I had a close up picture of him in the parking lot but because of the paved background it didn't look right in the hub but he was such a friendly little guy!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment.

Hi Mar,

Oh you are so kind and I'm lovin it! Yes, beach walks with girlfriends are awesome.

I wasn't sure about adding the link to the short story but it felt like it made sense as long as I warned the readers that the other hub was fiction.

Thanks so much for all your help, support and encouragement. You are such a doll and an inspiration and a whole lot of fun!


Fennelseed profile image

Fennelseed 5 years ago from Australia

This is a wonderful hub on so many counts, of course the spectacular photography and I will get back to that, but your commentary of the Delaware Seashore State Park is so enticing, the lectures and tours sound amazing, I would love to do the Edible Plants of the Seashore lecture and learn about the Monarch Migration, oh and the Lantern Tour and crafts. If I wasn't on the other side of the planet, I would sign up for all of them!!!

Your hub provides more evidence to me that in human life we have no pure artists, only imitators; nature provides the inspiration for all creativity. Your photos are amazing, especially the "champagne bubbles" and the pylons in the ocean and my favourite the "shifting beach sand" photo.

Then the icing on the cake, the haiku, beautiful poetry in its simplicity and the mind visuals conveyed.

I am so glad I came back to take this in fully and I will be back again for more. Thank you so much HBN,for sharing this wonderful and inspiring place so beautifully. All my votes to you!!


femmeflashpoint 5 years ago

Boomer,

Another wonderful put-together of pieces! And, once again, I loved, loved, LOVED the photos! Excellent shot of the bird, by the way. I liked the bubbles a great deal, but the shot of the pilings in the sand, very, very nice touch! I went back to look at that one three times, lol! It's LOADED with color and shape variations!

The whole place looks fresh and crisp!

The haiku content wasn't shabby either, lol!

Great job! Up and across with a skip over "funny". :)

Hello Again Fennelseed,

Your comment has augmented and graced this hub and I am humbled by it. I particularly liked this observation that you made: "Evidence that in human life we have no pure artists, only imitators; nature provides the inspiration for all creativity." Oh yes, I can surely attest to that. When we look closely we really can see themes, infinite varieties of shapes and structures, life lessons repeated over and over again for animals, insects and plants. Death & renewal. Perhaps that's why my soul craves being in nature so much. I am touched that through pictorials like this I can now share some of my "views" with others. I am one of those people who can walk the exact same path every day and never get bored because of Mother Nature. Even in a city, one finds flowers sprouting up between the cracks!

Thanks so much for the vote up and your ongoing support which is appreciated more than you know.

Dear Femmeflashpoint,

I am so glad that you liked it and I thank you for your ongoing feedback and support. You always make my spirits soar because your comments are uplifting and empowering. Sharing my photography and Haiku this way is a stretch for me but you make me glad I posted it. I have been humbled by the response of fellow hubbers like yourself and am once again reminded what an inspiring and supportive community this is.

Sending Hub Hugs,

Boomer (oh how I love the power in that word which, as you know, I hadn't noticed till you pointed it out!)

So you’ve done a beach photo hub after all. I love it! That first photo is just beautiful, as are the bubbles, the dunes, the bird… I’m astonished at the sharpness of the first photo. I love beaches, love the sea, love beach photos.

The sea always gives me a sense of awe, connection with the world, with life. When I was we used to go to beaches on the Atlantic, look out over the vast expanse of blue and think about how there were people out there somewhere, beyond the water. And this is that same Atlantic of course. Water connects us. My first ever published story was called “Looking For America,” and it’s on that theme. You’ve captured that in these photos.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Melovy,

So glad you enjoyed this photo gallery of the sea. When I read the comment about your first published story I had a moment of goose bumps because the sea does connect us. Many a time I've looked at the great expanse and wondered about people on its distant shores. Would love to read your short story or a revised version of it on Hub Pages.

The sea always gives me a feeling of awe blended with serenity and peace, regardless of how I'm feeling before I get there. I'm glad my photos captured some of its beauty and thank you for your feedback and support. Your comments have a way of enriching anything I've written in my hubs.


Melovy profile image

Melovy 5 years ago from UK

Hi again Happyboomernurse,

I agree with what you say about the sea giving a feeling of awe blended with serenity and peace. That is what I was groping for in my comment. So glad you understood and found the words!

I see I’ve made a mistake in my comment - it should say when I was young we used to go to beaches on the Atlantic. Another thing that always fascinated me a child growing up in the Shetland isles was that the water along the west coastline was warmer than the east because of the Gulf Stream water, which came all the way from the Gulf of Mexico. That helped to feel connected I suppose.

It’s amazing to think that you were looking east and wondering about the people on the far shores, and on this side we do the same thing. I will probably post that story on Hubpages after the contest is over - because it has already been published (in a tiny publication) it won’t be eligible.

As I was scrolling down your hub, I just kept saying 'wow' what a delight this is!

I would love to visit and attend all those lectures, the Monarchs travel up to 100 miles a day - that's incredible!

I loved the fabulous photos and haiku poetry.

Voting up and thank you for sharing, best wishes MM

Hi Melovy,

Thanks for coming back with another interesting comment. I never realized the Gulf Stream went that far!

I may be wrong but I think you can still enter your old story in the contest as long as it was never published online but you would have to confirm that with a Hub Pages staff member. Simone Smith would be a good person to contact. Good luck my friend. Hope it is eligible!

Eiddwens so right. A joy to see this this morning. Down south of you people tend to forget about the beautiful beaches up your way. Wonderful hub and to be honest about, Delaware Seashore State Park looks better than a lot of em down here anyway. Here's a champagne toast to your gentle and gorgeous haiku poems too Gail.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Welcome Alastar,

Thanks for the champagne toast- I loved it! (smile).

I agree that many people who live along the southeast coast don't realize we have some great beaches in the Mid Atlantic but a lot of the beaches in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida are equally wonderful. I particularly love the Hilton Head Island beaches where I can ride my bike on the hard packed sand for miles!


Danette Watt profile image

Danette Watt 5 years ago from Illinois

Gail, I have to agree with my sister - your photos are beautiful. I'm curious what kind of camera you are using. I especially enjoyed the monarch butterfly photo and haiku. Thanks for sharing your poetry.


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Danette,

That butterfly was quite a "poser" had its wings wide spread for over 2 minutes while I was kneeling right next to it!

My camera is about 5 years old and is a Fujifilm FinePix 3800 3.2 Megapixel Bridge Camera. You can find reviews of it at http://reviews.pricegrabber.com/digital/m/610943/ .

I don't know much about cameras but this one was recommended by a professional photographer who recommended it as being a quality, easy to use camera that was relatively inexpensive. I basically just point and shoot. The only thing that frustrates me is that it takes around 20 seconds to recharge between pictures. But it's very light, very easy to use and overall I'm pleased with it.

Am so glad you enjoyed the haiku. I'm having fun with it.

Thanks so much for your ongoing support.

Hub Hugs,

Gail
