Photo Walk of Delaware City - What a Quaint, Waterfront Town!

8:00 AM

Sometimes you can find enchantment in your own backyard....

There's a paved trail along the canal in Delaware City that will eventually grow to 16 miles long. "The 6.1-mile paved shared-use recreational trail provides visitors with a spectacular view of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal."

On my 2nd photo walk with my local "Clickin" group we visited Delaware City. What a charming and quaint town, with buildings from the early 1800s.  Being by the water is its crowning feature.

It looks out upon Pea Patch Island and Fort Delaware and sidles up beside The C&D Canal.

At the center of it is the historic Central Hotel, which now holds offices for the American Birding Association.

Our guide on this sun-drenched day was Christine, the owner of Cordelia's Cafe.  Besides the wonderful lunch she walked with us and shared much about the history of the area and its resurgence.

This is a spot to return to...great tea sandwiches and dessert delights!

But I would also like to sample the offerings at the local gastro pub, too.  It's touted as gourmet pub fare and a tour inside highlighted the recovered tin ceilings and walls. Adorning the walls are old photos of the town's history. Prepare yourself for the name...I kid you not...Lewinsky's on Clinton.  Reminder to NOT go there on Thursday nights wearing a blue dress.

 I hope to walk these streets again soon and check out some of the other shops. This is a spot that encompasses charm, exercise, history and good food!

We always loved to visit the library here. Such a little gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life.
