This is a "bigger-deal" ferry than the last one we rode at Cape Hatteras. There's this large modern terminal. (The boat in front is a miniature model of the ferry.)
The real boat has two passenger decks above the car level and full service food and drinks (which we didn't take advantage of since it was before our lunch time.)
We spent the whole voyage on the upper deck, enjoying the slight rock and the sunshine and breeze, happy to be back on the water.
This tall ship is a reproduction of Delaware's historic Kalmyr Nikkel. She takes tourists on Bay cruises, sailing from the Lewes Ferry Terminal Dock. This is really the only thing besides the ferry that I found to take a picture of in the part of Delaware where we stayed.
Delaware is the only State besides Oregon that has no sales tax. In Oregon (which is our former long-time home state), I don't think you can see much difference at the border between neighboring states. Delaware seems to attract a lot of out-of-state shoppers to take advantage of its tax-free status. We saw row after row of shopping outlets and discount malls. People can walk onto the ferry in New Jersey and take a shuttle to these malls from the Delaware dock.
