We were up early this morning, as we had an appointment to make. We were headed to the lovely port at Lewes, Delaware, to catch the ferry. This ferry ride will take us from Delaware to New Jersey, and save us a considerable amount of driving. So we left our very nice Boondockers Welcome site at 9:00 a.m. Some would say that's not really early, but remember that we are retired and on a whole different time schedule now.
We headed for the harbor for our journey on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. We didn't sail until 10:15, but we were supposed to check in at the station an hour early. We prepaid our $104 ferry ticket when we made our reservation several weeks ago. That's $79 for the motor home and pickup, $20 for two passengers, and a $5 fuel surcharge. When we got to the entrance gate, they measured our motor home and pickup to verify the 59-feet measurement that we used to fill out our on-line reservation. Then they charged us an extra $1 fuel surcharge because of the rising price of diesel.
Being here an hour early gave us time to walk around the Lewes Harbor. They have a nice building with travel information and a grill. We have been struggling with how to pronounce the name of this town since we first saw it in print. Now we know that you say it like "Lewis."
