I’m back in DC after a wonderful couple days in Bethany Beach, Delaware with my friend Hilary! I’m hitting the ground running today (literally — got in a quick 3 miler this morning!) to catch up after taking a couple days off — on the docket are various conference calls, doing some grad school paperwork for starting up my next internship next week, two wedding planning related appointments, a hair cut, attempting to catch up on emails, meeting Matt for lunch and some girlfriends for dinner. Whew! Plus, packing — I leave tomorrow morning for the Healthy Living Summit!
In the meantime, I’d like to share some highlights from earlier this week in Bethany. 🙂 Enjoy!
The #1 highlight (besides getting to spend some quality time with my high school buddy Hilary) was of course the beach. 🙂
We spent all of Tuesday and most of Wednesday with this view.
It was especially awesome because the weather forecast called for rain/thunderstorms both days. We lucked out!
I brought my Nook along and spent the majority of the beach time reading “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed. Have any of you guys read it? It’s REALLY good so far — I’m about 3/4 of the way through. It’s a memoir about hiking 1100 miles of the Pacific Coast Trail solo. Pretty amazing!
Highlight #2 — raw oysters! I’m obsessed with them lately.
They are especially delicious when wine is involved, too. And did you know oysters are a great source of zinc, calcium, iron, selenium, manganese, vitamin A and vitamin B12, among other things? Thanks, Biochem.
Highlight #3 — the boardwalk! I LOVE boardwalks. They just scream summer and happiness.

Highlight #4 — beach hot dogs. Topped with chili. Oh yes I did.
And while we’re at it — Dippin’ Dots. Yes, future Registered Dietitians (at least this one) still eat hot dogs and Dippin’ Dots on occasion. Moderation, friends!
Highlight #5 — the beach on Monday night. How gorgeous is this view?
Time to get back to work. Have a wonderful day, friends! 🙂
What’s your favorite thing about the beach?
