A neighbor very kindly offers her house off season in Rehoboth Beach. We love to go in March when we can enjoy the quiet of the town and walk our pit bull Spud on the beach without fear of scaring, say, an elderly woman as she walks towards us with her Pekingese. Gale-force winds hit Rehoboth. And today I was able to find the only camellia bloom that wasn’t hit by freezing temperatures. Camellias are such an early bloomer that often the buds die of cold before even opening. So glad I was able to capture this one.
