A Bit of NE in DE

I've lived in the DC area since 1990 but last week was my first trip to the quaint beachside town of Lewes, DE. It's like a dose of New England in the Mid-Atlantic.

A great place to eat - Striper Bites. Seems that Ty Pennington went there when he was in town.
The infamous Cannonball House. It was built in 1760 and acquired its accessory in 1813.
A church - birdhouse.
A duck nestled among the clams. There were two flanking the entry and they made me smile - credit where credit is due.

We go through on our way to Cape May and have always heard good things about it. Next time maybe we will spend a little more time exploring :)

Even though we go to Bethany Beach every summer, I have never been to Lewes but once in 40 years! I must go and soak in the ambiance. It looks like a darling town.

Lewes is such a nice quiet and restful alternative to busy Rehoboth and Dewey! Great pictures.

I always spent time in Lewes when I was in Dewey Beach for the greyhound gathering each spring. It is such a wonderful little town ... and very dog friendly.

Very pretty. Looks like it could be Martha's Vineyard.

I love Lewes. I am trying to convince my husband that Delaware is a nice place. Maybe I'll get there next year.

Thank you for posting! I'm always looking for something in the mid-Atlantic that will remind me of home, New England.
