Long time lurker jumping in.

Delaware in general is a very mainstream state, but we are making huge strides.  We now have 3 LLL meetings a month across the state, and 3 babywearing meetings.  We will soon have ICAN as well.  I don't know specifically about Fenwick,but the beaches in general are more laid back and "organic".  Delaware is a dream for homeschoolers, very friendly.  We belong to a very large (Christian) co-op in Kent County, and I have heard rumors of others co-ops trying to get off the ground.

Welcome! Have you moved yet?  We're in New Castle County and I've never been to fenwick island, but there is a large network of AP mamas that has stemmed from the delmarva babywearer group (you can find them on FB).

I've lived in southern Delaware now for two years and have been pleasantly suprised with regards to many aspects of this area, including attitudes about parenting.  I live "inland" a bit but I am still showered with positive comments from strangers when I wear my daughter in the ergo. I have never received one negative comment about that or homebirthing or breastfeeding. (Though one guy did mistake her for a dog and told me I couldn't bring animals into the store... haha) In general, people are just too polite here to talk rudely to strangers even if they did disagree. I know of a small LLL group in Lewes (a little north of Fenwick) and I believe all the beach communities, especially, are quite "organic" like another poster mentioned. I also know quite a few homeschoolers here. On another note, there are also community supported organic farms popping up around here and farmers markets. Please let me know if you have any more questions about delaware and/or sussex county, I am more than happy to help!
