Is This A Great Place To Live Or What?

Heritage Shores Clubhouse Menu

Above is a takeout menu for groceries. Western Golf, which runs the golf course and restaurants/food/beverage locations in Heritage Shores, is now delivering food to the shut-in. Those who are able, can pick up their food at a designated time.

This is part of community efforts to maintain social distancing while going through the COVID-19 virus.

Social Distancing

With COVID-19 affecting many parts of the globe, our country, state and community have instituted “social distancing” guidelines trying to slow the spread of this virus.

Our clubhouse restaurant is offering pickup since food can’t be served on site. The menu has some great items and when one arrives to pick up food, one of the staff brings it out to your car.

I would like to thank our restaurant employees for taking risks to provide fine cuisine for our community.

It’s One I’ll Remember

At a recent “Eat, Learn, Grow” event by Passwaters Landscaping company, I managed to come away with something to remember. The event was a show of appreciation by this vendor with included a free continental breakfast, raffles, prizes, a paver patio special, equipment demonstrations and a chance to hang out with my neighbors.

Searching around taking pictures to put on a Facebook page I did my usual approach of getting people interactions, signs, speakers and such. One picture I made was a roll of tickets to be used in the raffles. I’ve done that picture many times. Another was taken from the side viewing tickets on the inside. That may have been done in the past also. For some reason, I decided to look at tickets from the top. That was the “money” shot.

After all these years, this was the first time I’ve done a raffle ticket shot like the one above. It’s shot with camera inside the glass cylinder looking down. You can see the reflection of tickets in the glass.

It’s one I’ll remember.

I Felt At Home

Our Clubhouse started serving breakfast today for the first time, on a daily basis. This is the image I like the most of some including diners enjoying food, place settings and etc. Maybe be I felt that way because, at home, I do most of the cooking.

A Gutter Buddy

Gutter Buddies – Do Not Remove

After the recent issues with the Sussex Conservation inspections, which resulted in suspended building permits, management requests that homeowners do not remove the gutter buddies under any circumstance.

Suspension of the development and builders ability to obtain permits is not acceptable.

In case of severe rains or storms, the gutter protection can be TEMPORARILY removed by one of the development or building teams or an HOA employee. However, MUST be replaced IMMEDIATELY after the weather event.

My community HOA manager sent out the following announcement:

Dog Park

HOA management is looking into possible solutions for the ground at the dog park. Obviously, with recent rains, soft soil and pups running and from licking about, the turf is bound to get tattered and messy.

While I am in the process of determining such solution and in scheduling meetings with contractors for the same; I welcome you, as dog owners who use the park, or to those that don’t, to please share your thoughts and feasible solutions to correct the ground at the Dog Park.

I can be reached via email at or by phone at 302-337-9919.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dawn Guappone,
Community Manager
Heritage Shores HOA

—————- ——— End of Announcement ————- ————–

Now looking at the Off Leash Bark Park Rules, I’m convinced the cats should operate the space. They look like something the cats would come up with 🙂

While repairing some light poles, a local utility company used a Ditch Witch to dig and lay cables. Besides a great name for a piece of equipment I loved the wicket orange colors.

A Ditch Witch was being using to lay some cables.
