bethany beach is a coastal town just south of indian river inlet, a small opening connecting indian river bay and rehoboth bay with the atlantic ocean. bethany beach is one of thr more quiet beach towns in delaware, as compared to more popular and more hip towns like rehoboth beach and dewey beach.

bethany beach was founded by members of the christian church, also known as the disciples of christ. this church had members in the washington, dc area, as well as in pennsylvania. the town was founded not for the sake of having a town there, but to give a place for the disciples of christ to assemble and relax along the ocean.

Sea Colony always seems way out of place for me, even though it sort of around the bend and out of town. Good pictures, I've seen most of those places before, though usually we 'station' in S. Bethany.
