Oh, how a half a century can change one's perspective! Now I love those Victorian homes in Cape May! All those wonderful streets lined with classy shops and restaurants. The pedestrian malls in downtown. And Wildwood seems so tacky! Did I ever love it? Well I'm sure my grandchildren would rather come to Wildwood than to Cape May. Lucky for us that we stayed at the Seashore Campsite near Cape May but a short drive to Wildwood as well. We got to visit both.
|We took a ferry from Lewes, Delaware to Cape May. |
Cuts out about 60 miles and the fare ($80 for Diva and the two of us)
was not much more than the extra fuel and tolls.
|Bella, a Golden-Doodle, sits at the bar while waiting for the ferry. She liked Bud Light.|
|Diva was 3rd in line to get on the ferry.Also the 3rd to get off.|
|Diva from above. The ferry could hold 100 cars.|
|A German Sheppard guards the entrance to the ferry. |
I don't know if he was sniffing for drugs, weapons, dead bodies?
Lucky we didn't have any of those on Diva.

|This dog drew large crowds while parading up and down the main drag.|
|The Wildwood Boardwalk has not changed a bit since I was a teen|

Amazing that they were able to get the rights to use his image that fast!
