    Default Thanks for the Heads-Up

    Your post could not have been timelier for me. I am currently in the beginning stages of planning a few days for my wife and myself in the mid-section of the Delmarva Peninsula this fall to coincide with my xx'th high school reunion. I haven't been into Lewes for almost that long, having only driven by the outlet malls along DE-1 in the intervening years. In the back of my consciousness, I knew of Lewes' historical roots, but this is just the jolt I need to spend some quality time there.
