Nov 6, 2011 - Punkin Chunkin

November 3 Cool but sunny this morning on the drive to Delaware. The toll bridge across the Chesapeake Bay cost us $12., and it was about a two hour drive to Lewes, Delaware.

On The Road 2011

Aug 20, 2011 - Lewes, Delaware

We planned to drive south on state road #1 toward Ocean City. But, the traffic was unbelievable...we drove as far as Bethany Beach then drove inland and made a loop back north to Lewes. The northbound side of #1 was backed up for miles so we were hoping for better on 113...not to be. The traffic was bumper to bumper there, too. We discovered that this is the last weekend before school starts up here. And, everyone has migrated to the seashore. We made it into Lewes looking for lunch. We had visited Lewes some years ago and took the ferry...

Jul 23, 2010 - Lewes Delaware

Here we are, made the drive from Dallas, Texas all the way to Lewes, Delaware, we had vehicle issues on this trip which made the drive a bit stressful, mentally caused the set up and the ‘back to normal’ relaxing after arrival really non-existent. With the vehicle back in our hands, we have ventured out to see a few things. Donna and I drove to Fisherman’s Wharf for dinner, we enjoyed fresh fish and relaxing by the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal, watched folks fish and saw a few boats float back in to the pier for the evening. Walking around...

Oct 16, 2008 - Lewes, Delaware

We drove over to Delaware on Thursday. We crossed the Cheasepeake Bay to the other half of Maryland and then on to Lewes. No sign saying we had entered Delaware on the road we were on. Stopped at the station for a break and had to take a picture of the fuel prices. Really has changed around this area outside of DC. Was a very nice drive. Houses are far apart, no fences, lots of farming area. Had lunch at Bob Evans and then drove back to trailer. Mileage was about 60 miles and took about 1 1/2 hrs, going thru rural area speed limits are not...

Fogle's Dream Trip

Feb 3, 2008 - Road Trip

On Saturday, Gary, Rusty and I decided to take a road trip. We headed out to Lewes DE to take the ferry over to Cape May, NJ. I've added pictures. We had such a good time. The countryside is beautiful, even in the winter. Lots of old farms and waterways. The ferry crossing was expensive and Gary was livid. But he got over it. The crossing was rough, ugh. Even with this extremely large ferry I had to spend most of the 75 min. crossing outside looking at the skyline. I was glad to hit New Jersey. We spent several hours in Cape May NJ, on the...

Aug 22, 2007 - Lewes, Delaware, Dutch Whaler Settlement

The Cape May-Lewes ferry leaves the harbour just outside of Cape May, makes a 180º turn and begins to make speed. The Delaware Bay is quite wide here and the Delaware coast is hidden in the glimmering distance. A whale-sighting boat lingers just in the path of our ferry, now at half power and then we see why, small groups of dolphins elegantly curve in and out of the water and as soon as they have passed the ferry rumbles to full speed. It still takes a good hour and a half to get to the other side and with the low coast line gradually...

Nov 7, 2006 - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Nov.7/06 Today the weather got up to 20 C and we traveled through Annapolis to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The information centre at Rehoboth Beach gave us some great things to see. The oceanfront Boardwalk is 1 mile long but most shops are closed for the season. You could tell that it must be a very busy place in the summer. The city is a very clean and friendly place. On Jan.27, 1873 the Camp Meeting Association of Methodist Episcopal Church was incorporated by Delaware legislature for the purpose to establish a permanent camp meeting...

The park is located one mile east of Lewes, where the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay meet. It consists of 5,000 acres that include a 4 mile beach, both ocean and bay vistas, nature trails and a bird sanctuary. The Cape’s Great Dune is one of the highest coastal points between Cape Hatteras and Cape Cod. As well as the stae park we also visited Roebeth Beach with its long swathe of sand.
