In Old New Castle

Bike Ride
Our Office Christmas Lunch on Friday was at a small restaurant in the oldest part of the City of New Castle, on the Delaware River. After we ate, a few of us took a brief stroll around the town. It was another bright, though cold, day and I wanted to get some photos of the town for possible use in our Livable Delaware web site. And, of course, I love to take pictures of places like this.

New Castle is a gem. It's very colonial; it was one of the first (European) places in the first state. There are old buildings, the river, a sense of history, a village green, and cobblestones.

The photo above is from Battery Park, which fronts much of the town along the Delaware River and features a scenic walk, piers, and a beach. This is how cities and towns should grow.

I love this picture. The tree against that beautiful blue sky, and the lone biker on the pathway - it's a great shot. Love the "river" picture too. You have great skill with a camera.

I love Battery Park, too. When I lived just outside of NC, I got over there every chance I could.

It's a shame that if you turned around you'd be able to see the nuclear reactor. Ruins a good shot facing south.

You were in my neck of the woods and I didn't even know it! I walk there all the time.
