Spent Labor Day touring historic Lewes, Delaware. Many charming homes remain, including Captain Charles W. Johnston’s Queen Anne Victorian house (pictured at right).

A perfect place to camp is Cape Henlopen State Park  “right on the water where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. This 3,000-acre park near Lewes has the famous ‘walking’ sand dunes, nature trails with guides, a nature center, camping bathhouses, tennis courts, recreation areas and areas for surf fishing and swimming.”

Cape Henlopen’s beaches attract thousands of visitors who enjoy ocean swimming and sunbathing.

“Pine-covered dunes are the setting for over 150 spacious sites, most with a water hookup. Camping is available from March 1 through November 30.For family camping, call the Campground Reservation System at 1-877-98 PARKS. For more information, call the campground at (302) 645-2103. For non-residents sites with water hook-up runs $32/night, without hookup, $30/night.” Be sure to ask about limit on RV length, most of the campsites are small, many tent-only.
