A couple of weeks ago, we took a quick family getaway to beautiful Broadkill Beach on the Delaware Bay. Like most people, we haven’t had a chance to get out much lately. But a good friend of ours has a family beach home there and offered it to us for a few days for a little vacation.
It was just what we needed. No bars, restaurants or boardwalk means it’s not a huge tourist destination. On the short stretch of land isolated from humanity by the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, there is only one general store that sells ice cream, donuts (so good), pizza, sandwiches, and other modest beach needs and rentals. The beach itself is unincorporated, so they allow pets, bonfires and other things most other beaches do not. A majority of the people there actually own homes and every time we have visited with our friends, we have gotten to know the families on either side of us. It definitely gives it a community feel and everyone takes good care of each other and the beach.
All-in-all, BKB was the perfect place to socially distance from everyone for a reprieve from our new Covid reality. We are so grateful to our friends and their family for letting us borrow it for a few days.
While we were there, I was also able to sneak away to capture a couple of family beach sessions while also enjoying a stunning sunset. It ended up being such a beautiful night.
Here are a few that I did with my friend Leah and her sweet girls – a thank you for letting us borrow their wonderful family home for a few days.
