DELAWARE TRIP PART 2
Trip Summaries
Days 7-8 (Sidetrips)

DAY EIGHT SUMMARY
Tuesday, August 5, 2003

This was the wettest day of the trip. I drove exactly 200 miles around southern Delaware to compile more pictures for the Delaware State Highway Terminus Gallery & Guides. Well, as soon as I got the final terminus of the day (DE 5's southern terminus), the rain stopped and it became partly cloudy for the first time all day. So most pictures from this day will not be as great as I would have liked them to be.

DAY SEVEN SUMMARY
Monday, August 4, 2003

For the first time in my life, I rode on a ferry boat on this day. I took the Cape May-Lewes Ferry across the Delaware Bay, then headed into New Jersey. Atlantic City was the destination. Basically, I saw the eastern end of U.S. 40 (which is unsigned, too bad), and a few casinos. Then I headed back through Wilmington and Dover. This day was one of the most unusual weather days I have ever seen on a roadtrip. Sometimes, it would be sunny, and not look like it's going to rain. Then, just a few miles later, it would start pouring down rain. Then it would clear up again. The weather reminded me of Oklahoma's: You never know what to expect!
