Ft Mott State Park
The Ferry to take us from Ft. Mott over to Pea Patch Island where Ft. Delaware is located. This ferry only comes to NJ every two hours. This is a good piece of info to know, which I didn't when we started our adventure.
The entry to Ft. Delaware.
The Drawbridge was down in anticipation of our visit.
We wandered to the Kitchen where Son checked out their indoor pumbing and the new stove.
The next stop was the blacksmith shop. Son was facinated with the bellows used to keep the fire going.
The blacksmith made Son a Nail.
I tried to leave Son in the prisons but he didn't want to stay.
We also looked for ghosts in the tunnels, just like the Ghost Hunters did a couple of Halloweens ago. Well, not quite like them but we pretended!
We took the ferry from Ft. Delaware over to Delaware City for lunch.
We had lunch at Crabby Dicks. YUM!
If you every get to one, have their Stuffed Pretzel. HEAVEN!
We wandered the Park while waiting for the Ferry to take us back to NJ. Now is when the knowledge that the ferry only goes to NJ every two hours would have come in handy.
Son wanted to stay until 4 but I was hot and tired and wanted to go home. There was a ferry to NJ at 2 and 4. But there also were ferries over to Ft. Delaware and I thought they would also be going to NJ. I was WRONG. We missed the 2 o'clock ferry. So we were stuck in Delaware City until 4. With nowhere air conditioned to hang out. Grrrrrrrrrr
We finally made it back to NJ. I think the next time we go, I will drive to Delaware City and take the ferry to Ft. Delaware. Then I won't be stranded for the day.
This is part of Theme Thursday. Head over there to check out other Parks and Recreations.
