This morning we headed south to the Delaware Seashore State Park. Just over this dune is the Atlantic Ocean. The water was warm, the waves mild and I saw dolphins. Lots and lots of dolphins.
Here I am. Can you guess what that is in the background? The tall thing sticking up just to my right? Do you know? Well, let me tell you.
Back in World War 2 there was fear that the Germans would attack Philadelphia, or other ports along the eastern seacoast. Just north of these towers is the entrance to the Delaware Bay, and upstream from the Delaware Bay lies the ports of Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, PA. These towers were used as lookout towers, and thus this beach we were at today is rightly named Tower Beach. Today you cannot go up in these towers, but they still stand as a little reminder to Delaware's role in helping to play a role in the coastal watch.
I also met Michele, a very, cool, homeschooling mom and a dear friend to Mt Pleasant Mom. Soon she will be moving to West Virginia and I'm hoping that I will be able to visit her sometime in the near future. But I heard that I will be heading north very soon. Delaware has been fun to visit and I've seen some really neat sites.
