About David Pass
We are avid dog lovers with two very active but well behaved beagles...Topper & Kermit, so Summer of '42 is definitely pet friendly. Our newest rescue is named Franklyn who despite being accidentally shot and abandoned in the woods of West Virginia, has emerged with the most loving and attentive disposition.
David Pass purchased this house in 2005
Why David Pass chose Broadkill Beach
We loved the quiet location, the uncrowded beach where we could walk forever(and have our dogs walk with us), the quaint country store with great ice cream and sandwiches (and recently, kayak rentals), being in the Nature Preserve (it is fascinating to see the multitude of birds that frequent the preserve), being very close to great golf, and being able to sail and kayak from the beach OR Canoe down the Broadkill river! It seemed like a step back in time where life was calmer and less hectic, hence our choice of 'Summer of '42' for the name. Broadkill is a calm beach where the waves are minimal, yet great surf is available in the nearby Cape Henlopen State Park (which also has great biking and hiking trails and a dog-friendly beach. Broadkill is a unique place away from everything where time seems to stand still, yet just a quick hop in the car to the excitement of Lewes, Rehoboth, the Lewes-Cape May Ferry and other places of interest. We just plain fell in love with it!
