Dolle’s Candy – Rehoboth Beach

For nearly a century, Dolle’s has been serving up caramel corn and salt water taffy. Dolle’s began in 1926 and moved to its present location in 1927. During the storm of 1962, the 3,500 pound taffy machine fell through the floor and into the sand below. The machine was rescued and is still in use today. Before air conditioning, candy shops would make chocolate only in the fall, winter or spring and then fall back on brittles, caramel corn and other treats in the summertime. Thankfully, you can buy delicious chocolate all summer at Dolle’s but buying this picture will give you joy without all the calories!

The Old Presbyterian Meeting House in Alexandria, Virginia, dates from the early eighteenth century. Scottish Presbyterians were among the early European settlers of Northern Virginia and were involved in establishing Alexandria as a port in 1749. The Society of Presbyterians worshiped publicly in the city from the 1760s, and the congregation’s first installed minister arrived in 1772. The history of the congregation is summarized in the Chronology and History sections of this Web site, and the Meeting House itself and other facilities belonging to the congregation are discussed in the Facilities section. Among other services that George Washington attended here was one conducted by the Rev. Dr. James Muir for the National Day of Solemn Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer in 1798. Alexandria’s memorial services for George Washington in 1799 were held in this sanctuary, and the church bell tolled in mourning during the four days between his death and burial. The Tomb of an Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution is located in the burying ground adjoining the Meeting House.

Two by Two by Pat Palermino

It’s a bit fantastical to imagine an ark full of animals – two of each to be exact! Of course no pictures of the actual event are available, but once again Pat Palermino dreams up what it could have looked like in her Two by Two original folk art painting. If we had been there our only request would be to not be seated next to the octopi!

The Cherry Blossoms are Coming

We know it doesn’t feel like Springtime outside, but it is coming soon and so are the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC! You must be quick to see them though because while they are stunningly beautiful they are also very delicate and the blossoms don’t last long. If you don’t make it to Washington this year to see them then you can always buy a Patricia Palermino original depiction of Jefferson’s monument and the tidal basin with the cherry trees in full bloom! You will feel the first breath of Spring when you look at this painting and you won’t have to fight through crowds of tourists to see the trees at their blooming best!
