Edward Goldberg, MD, is a cardiologist who has owned a home and vacationed in Lewes for the past three decades. His grandsons, Andrew and Zach, visited Lewes last summer during July and August. A visit to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry was a daily routine and its workings a magnet for a child’s curiosity. Below is Goldberg’s account, written with his grandsons in mind:
A visit to the ferry
Andrew, a 6-year-old first-grader, has fallen in love with the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. This love affair started last summer when he and his grandfather, Sa, visited the ferry every day. Each morning Sa was awakened promptly at 7 a.m. to be in time for breakfast and the 8 a.m. ferry. The morning always started with reading the ferry schedule and noting the color of the day, which defined the frequency of arrivals.
