End of Day Log Entry

Wow 11:22 pm.  Bill and I are in our overnight outdoor accomodations on the lawn of the East Point Lighthouse.  This place rocks.  Sits maybe 60 yards from the water.  The care takers Nancy and her husband are so nice.  They work hard to keep the place running.  Without boring you too much the structure is challenged by the Bay which is trying to reclaim its land.  The pumps that remove water from the basement are constantly running and being damaged. 

It would be so sad to see it go.  The structure at one time was abandoned and vandals accidently set it on fire.  Looking at it today you'd never know that happened.  

Anyway, we had a great ride on the ferry to start the day.  Met several retired and fans of the Coast Guard throughout the day. Many wete attracted to Bill's  Coast Guard socks.  Yes, his socks!

Anyway, the roads are pretty to start running the Delaware Bay - liked that.  Then they got busy had we headed north and inland.  

Bill saved the day and many miles by getting us back on track after I blew past a turn.  The alternate road was so calm and rural  - a welcome break.  

I'll post pictures tomorrow hopefully. 

Thanks for following!!!M  Must go to bed now or read my book.
