Seaford, DE

We stopped for the night here at the Seaford Elks Lodge, on the Delmarva peninsula (map). After leaving Toms River, we had a leisurely drive across NJ on SR70, then hit I-295 down to the Delaware Memorial Bridge. We stopped at the Flying-J in Carney's Point, just before the bridge, and took on 200 gallons of diesel and 80 gallons or so of fresh water. We also dumped our tanks there, as Flying-J makes an effort to equip all their truck stops with RV dumps. Our FMCA-sponsored Flying-J RV card also gets us the cash price when using a credit card -- important with a 200-gallon fill up. Oddly, the additional penny/gallon discount for using the card is not available in NJ.

Seaford was a convenient stopping point, far enough away from the bustle of Wilmington (and even Dover) to be quiet and pleasant. Today we will cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, after picking up a couple items here in sales-tax-free Delaware.
