A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! If you are here from Amy's page then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky! . For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of Delaware.
Delaware is known as the "First State" because it was the first of the 13 colonies to ratify the US Constitution---making it the first state in the union. Basically, Delaware was the trend setter for the remaining states. Delaware ranks 49th in square mileage among the states. It is made up of only 3 counties....New Castle to the North, Kent in Central Delaware and Sussex county to the south. Due to it's location, it's a quick 2 hour drive to the big cities of Washington D.C., Baltimore or Philadelphia.
My favorite part of Delaware is a beach town known as Rehoboth. It's a beautiful shore town with a mile long boardwalk. One side is the Atlantic Ocean, the other side is full of restaurants, shops, amusement park style rides and games and my favorite.....ICE CREAM!!!! Read an article about Rehoboth Beach from Southern Living here.
