“ When I left Baltimore, I could not imagine living anywhere other than Lower Delaware. I love the beach lifestyle, the outstanding dining, and being away from the hype of city life. It does not get any better than driving over the Indian River Inlet bridge seeing the surfers at sunset! I am living my dream. ”
