Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware

Trip Overview

Spent a wonderful day on the beach at the Cape! Surf fishing was dead so I thru the yak out for a paddle! Small swell made it for fun paddle little wind. The Dolphins never stopped cruising with ya till ya made it into the Bay around the Henlopen Light house! Nice trip of about 6 miles out and back. Took many photos some of the dolphins made it completely out of the water! One even gave me a little splash when it surfaced and got startled. A few others out mainly checking out all the Dolphins. Dolphins are fairly common in the area however Sunday saw an exceptional number! Stayed on the beach till about 5pm and than headed for home. Can't wait to get back out again next weekend! My own personal Margaritaville!!
