Delaware shore scenes

  I am linking up with Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

It is Memorial Day weekend, I want to say thank you to our Veterans and our soldiers who risk their lives for us to be safe. Have a happy holiday weekend!

These are some scenes from our visit to the Delaware shore last weekend. You can click on the images for larger viewing.


Slaughter Beach, Delaware


Prime Hook NWR, Delaware




A pretty Pink lady Slipper, a rare sighting for us. This spot along the trail had a lot of blooms.


A view of the Prime Hook wetlands.



Dover, Delaware is home to the AFB and sadly known as the largest military mortuary. Those soldiers killed overseas are brought to Dover before being transferred to family.  If you like old military airplanes there is also a Air Mobility Command museum for the public to enjoy.

It was a great weekend getaway. We visited various beaches and wildlife refuges on the Delaware coast.

I hope you enjoyed my scenic weekend.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.  

 Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.

    Você conseguiu fotos muito bonitas.
    Principalmente a flor rosa que parece uma orquídea selvagem.
