Patty Jacobs loves to live near the coast. 

She grew up in Linwood, N.J., a bedroom community outside Atlantic City. She’s also lived in three Florida seaside areas — Key West, Key Largo and West Fort Lauderdale — as well as Sonoma County, Calif. She moved to Delaware after meeting her husband, Ted, who owned a beach home in the Oak Orchard area.

Jacobs also never strayed far from hospitality. Her mother, whose family was in the industry, owned a restaurant at the Mays Landing Country Club in New Jersey. “I was raised in the business,” Jacobs says. “When I was probably 8 years old, I stood on a milk crate and sliced vegetables.”

Participants pay for empty containers, which they fill with goodies baked by volunteers, explained the professional musician, who organized a walk in New Jersey, where she’d lived before moving to Milton.

Equipped with a box and protective gloves, St. Peter’s walkers stroll the parish hall choosing preferred treats from banquet tables, which line the walls and create a dividing line down the room’s center.

When Barry Fleischmann and Mindy Fisher decided to cohabitate, they started fresh and moved from Baltimore to the beach. “Great quality of life, great cost of living,” Fleischmann says of their choice. “We moved in January 2022 and haven’t looked back.”

With their beach home under construction, the partners debated about continuing their meal-delivery service, Scratch Mill Kitchen, in Baltimore. “We decided if we were going to move here and ‘do’ here, we would move here and do it now,” says the chef. “So, we rented a house with storage for all our stuff.”
