Testing the Waters

A Mom and Kids at the Ocean

Did you know that Assateague Island once ran continuously to the Delaware State Line and it included what is now Fenwick Island and Ocean City? It was cut apart by a hurricane in 1933.

I think I heard this as a child but had forgotten. It's probably the source for a recurring nightmare that I had of sea waters rising and stranding us on Fenwick Island, with a hurricane raging and no way to escape. Perhaps we saw pictures of this somewhere. My sister admits to having the same scary dream. Even as an adult, I felt uncomfortable at the beach for many years. I still prefer vacationing on higher ground!
