A Sticky Situation at Gordon’s Pond
Gordon’s Pond in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a scenic area that offers a freshwater pond that goes right up to the ocean. It’s right in the path of the yearly bird migrations. There is a very well kept bike path that follows the pond shoreline.
The inlet to the pond meets up with a channel that cuts from Lewes, DE to Dewey Beach, DE. There are a lot of houses with boats that can quickly head through the channel to the ocean. The first picture is towards the channel, the 2 pics below is towards the pond. They regulate the amount of water in the pond by damming the flow under the bike path.
On the ocean side there is a beautiful beach that is relatively empty of people. Notice the tower, it’s a guard tower from WW2. They line the beach and had the capability to spot enemy ships miles out. Now they make great scenery while you relax on the shore.
I went bike riding with my friend Pat for sunrise. About 6 miles into our ride the chain on his bike broke, leaving us stranded. We thought it was hilarious and I quickly came up with a solution… I figured I could pull pat with a stick. So off we went awkwardly pulling him on his bike with a stick. After about 5 miles I was tired and we switched so I got to relax and get pulled by Pat. It went great and I only fell off my bike once in the process.
