Cape May Ferry

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 5 September 2015 in Transportation.

Taking the ferry to Cape May, New Jersey. The Cape May – Lewes Ferry is a ferry system that traverses a 17-mile (27 km) crossing of the Delaware Bay to connect Cape May, New Jersey with Lewes, Delaware. The ferry trip takes approximately 80 minutes and provides a view of three lighthouses. We took the ferry and spent the day in Cape May. This ferry was passing us on the return trip to Lewes.

Magnifique bâtiment, la traversée doit être agréable, surtout placé en haut on doit respirer un bon air iodé. )

A wonderful day, looks so fun. I 've only been on a few ferry's, once to Friday Harbor in Wash. and Alaska. I have to tell you a little story about my little grand-daughter, her dad took her on a ferry adventure one day and she got very upset on the ferry. Her dad asked her what was wrong, her replay was, " she had not seen even one fairy", and she had been looking the whole time while on the ferry. That was so precious, you just never know what they are thinking.:))

As a child I loved going on the ferry from Halifax to Prince Edward Island.... and have been on many more as an adult. There's just something about the ride that is both fun and exciting.... a nice respite from long spells of driving. That is a super shot of the passing ferry... I enjoyed!

@Carol: I like ferry rides too. The earliest I remember was when we went from Washington to Vancouver, BC. I think that I as about 11 and I really loved it!

I love to ride ferries, as well. We have a few in the Carolinas, but this one looks very large. A very calm looking day - good for a ferry ride.

Great shot - the ferry looks to move swiftly and smoothy across the bay.
