Instead of driving the 180+ miles back home, I decided to take the ferry across the bay, cutting my trip to 80 miles. There are a few things to see during the 75 minute ride, if you know what to look for.
Right next to the ferry is a replica of the first Dutch ship to land in Delaware. I wanted to commandeer it.
The Melee was quite comfortable aboard the ferry.
A lighthouse on the Delaware side, along with one of the towers from Cape Henlopen.
Imagine having to walk out to this every day.
You can see the Cape May Lighthouse from the ferry, though it’s a bit far.
Also visible from the ferry are the Concrete Shipwreck and WWII Watchtower.
