The Sleeper on the Bay
Photographer David J. Kraft
Over the canal and Lewes Beach to Breakwater Harbor or out to curving Cape Henlopen and the Atlantic.
Your main street has: Notting Hill Coffee Roastery, Kids’ Ketch toy store, The Buttery, Piccolino clothing store, Teller Wines, St. Peter’s old mariner’s church, and a drawbridge over the canal connecting to the beachside shops and galleries.
Your favorite restaurant could be: Agave for fresh, authentic Mexican food and a tequila bar.
Your neighbors are: mostly residents in their late 50s. Lewes locals participate in the arts community; make trips to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, or New York (all around three hours away); and bike or walk the American Discovery Trail.
