As a Rehoboth Beach summer kid it was fun to read about Fay and Bonnie's adventures. Having not been there for several years it also made me aware of many changes in Rehoboth. ( )

There is a "gay focus" to the book, However, not so much so that most folks couldn't otherwise get into it. Plenty of material about growing older, selling a home, etc. ( )

This is the little book that could! NOW IN ITS 3rd PRINTING! Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has been called The Nation's Summer Capital ever since the families of U.S. Senators and Congressmen discovered its beauty and charm, spending summers in Rehoboth to escape the oppressive heat and humidity of Washington, DC. Later, Rehoboth became another kind of refuge, when the gay and lesbian communities of the Mid-Atlantic found a beach resort to call their own. In 1995, writer Fay Jacobs and her partner Bonnie literally cruised into town and discovered the unique charm of this seaside community. Almost immediately, Fay began chronicling her life as a Rehoboth weekender in a column that appeared in the magazine Letters from CAMP Rehoboth. In the years that followed, Fay's Rehoboth fans have followed her smart, witty columns as Fay & Bonnie made the transition from visitors to regulars to locals themselves. Fay's unique voice and her willingness to bare it all in print turned her fans into a sort of extended family. Together, these essays tell a story that is sometimes provocative, sometimes political, occasionally heartwarming, and always hilarious. Also by Fay Jacobs, Fried & True- Tales from Rehoboth Beach
