Cape May-Lewes Ferry, Lewes Terminal, Cape May Terminal, Atlantic City, Bally’s Bikini Beach Bar, And…John Eddie, Traveling on the Ferry, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


What were we thinking?  Not much, except my social secretary, Paula, and her daughter, Jackie, had Atlantic City as a destination in mind.  Well, John Eddie,, musician, rocker, boot stumping kind of genre…was playing on the beach.  I must have been the only one they invited and said yes to traveling on the Sunday of 4th of July week-end.



The Lewes Terminal is located at 43 Cape Henlopen Drive, Lewes, DE 19958.  The Cape May Terminal is located at 1200 Lincoln Blvd., North Cape May, NJ 08204.

It was a gorgeous day, hot and steamy like today and our ferry was departing from the Lewes Terminal at 9:15 a.m.  Here is the website because traveling on the Ferry to New Jersey and back is the easiest and most comfortable way to go.  And, you cannot beat the scenery, especially on such a nice day.  There are bikes to rent, tours, and buses to take you downtown.  Not only does the Ferry offer the rides but it also has a lot of fun events for visitors and residents alike. Next time check the On The Rocks Bar & Grill because they have the best hamburgers in town and best views.  Website?


Inside, the air condition was on, the seats were comfortable, television on, and something to eat, as well.



On deck, all of our traveling companions were already soaking up the sun.  We decided to enjoy our ride along with the beautiful scenery.

The trip over to Cape May was great…..the drive to Atlantic City was crazy.  Finally, we arrived at 2 p.m.!!!


Rushing to the Bally’s Bikini Beach Bar and the Beach.  To tell you the truth, I was very surprised to see how good everything looked.  The beach was so wide; the sand so white.



John Eddie started to play….and Paula was happy!!




This bar sits right on the beach, so it was fun to be able to go and dance a little, and then grab a drink and kick back and relax.


Time went quickly and we had to catch the last Ferry back to Delaware.


On the Ferry, the sun was setting….we got comfortable to enjoy the ride once again.


The whale watching boat was coming in as we were heading out.




I am writing this post and some of it would be interesting to a few, but for the 3 friends that were there enjoying July 7th, a day of Summer of 2013…it was priceless!!

Until next time, ladies.
