Where is Cape Henlopen State Park?
Cape Henlopen and on the other, the New Jersey side, Cape May. Like two gatekeepers, the two capes in the 18th century (and later still) received the ships that set off from Europe to the new world. From Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Londonderry, etc. after nine weeks of travel across the endless ocean, which often cost many deaths due to illness, finally Land in sight. Flat shores, pushed into the sea, behind them majestic forests.
What must that have been? What anticipation for a better life. Without oppression, tax and tax burdens, Guild constraints.
Delaware Bay, which stretches behind the capes, later merges into the Delaware River, which flows through Philadelphia, capital of the young United States at the end of the 18th century.
