50 Miles For 50 Years... A half-tour of Delaware

I turned 50 on Friday, so I took the day off to crank a mile for every year, and take a slow ride down Delaware's scenic coastal route.

Starting at Delaware Park racetrack:

...into historic New Castle, where William Penn first landed in the New World:

South on Route 9 to Delaware City....

Over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal on the Reedy Point Bridge, and miles of Chesapeake sweet silver corn (if you haven't had our corn, you don't know what you are missing - goes great with blue crabs):

Port Penn, rush hour...

Taylor's Landing...

Cedar Swamp? Yeah, I cedar swamp. Do you cedar swamp?

Why do people keep calling me "Roger Thornton"?

Coming into beautiful downtown Leipsic for lunch....

Little Creek, Delaware - Population: "several"

One of the most impressive things to see in central Delaware are the C5 Galaxy transports coming into Dover AFB - nonstop from Kabul:

And my ride home is here and ready to pick me up:
