A Day at The Jersey Shore
7/28/2010
We took the ferry from Lewes, DE to Cape May, NJ, to spend a day on the beach with the Ferrarello Family, like we did last summer.
We were on the road a few minutes after 7. We arrived at the Lewes Ferry close to 0830 and Henry Hensel was waiting for us. We turned over several family albums and then said our goodbyes and headed for the ferry. The crossing was uneventful and we were foot dry just before 1100 and on the beach soon thereafter for a nice visit with family. It was back to the beach house at 1300 for a lunch of eggplant stews and salad. We left about 1530, headed back to the ferry landing. The afternoon crossing was a little harder with a 10o roll. Lyd was uncomfortable even before a nearby woman threw up from seasickness. On the drive back to Salisbury, we stopped at Chiliís for dinner, but it wasnít very good.
We met Henry near the ferry and gave him several family photo albums.
The Kalmar Nyckel is docked near the ferry and is available for tours.
We spent the trip north on the MV Twin Capes in a spacious salon. We treated ourselves to Bloody Maries.
We had several hours on the beach, basically watching Nico play in the sand and surf.
A nice eggplant stew was for lunch.
A round trip ticket is $82.00
