Blue Surf's out

It was our place in the sun for years ... and now it's closing.

The Blue Surf Motel, at the intersection of Bethany Beach boardwalk and the town's 2-block main drag, has been sold. It will be closing in September.

Bethany Beach is a sleepy, small beach town on the DelMarVa coast; it was our family's summer vacation spot from 1968 onward. In 1999, many family members, extended family members, and friends of the family cam back to Bethany to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

We only stayed in the Blue Surf a couple of times, but it has always been a friendly landmark. I'm saddened to see it go ... it takes with it a lot of comfortable memories.

Million dollar condos will take its place.
