Rosemarie and I rode down to Lewes, DE on Saturday. Since neither of us had ever taken the Cape May - Lewes Ferry, we decided to give it a try. We had the only motorcycle aboard for the 1 p.m. trip. The wind was fierce and the seas were choppy.

We took in the South Pole Party at the Irish Eyes Pub with Debbie and Clyde as the temperatures remained in the 70s. The food was excellent and many patrons came in Halloween costumes. There was a great band.

On Sunday, the weather had changed so temperatures were 20 degrees cooler and there was a stiff breeze and some annoying sprinkles of rain. We took the ferry back to Cape May, had a much more controlled voyage, and talked the whole way across with a congenial woman who invited us to share her table.

This week's pictures reveal elements of Halloween, mascots, and glimpses of the ferry.

I had to leave by 11:45 so I missed many of you. I expect to be around much longer at Old Bridge.
