Cape Henlopen is a deactivated military facility from the days of WWII. Enroute to Ocean City, Maryland, you will pass by it on the way to your destination. Developed into a park, walking along the beach one can observe huge concrete sheltered bunkers that housed large coastal guns to fire on sighted German U- boats that would go up Delaware in an effort to try & destroy industrial targets. Reading a large display plaque located at the park explains this to the reader. It even goes on explaining the finding of a U-Boats sailor's uniform thus suggesting that one was either destroyed via depth charges or by accident. Along the MD & DE coast is a span of concret observation towers, some ranging in height from 20' to 50'. At the park there is one such tower of 40' open to the public. Climbing the spiral staircase up, youll pass by many gun ports suggesting that there was great concern of a possible invasion on US soil. Upon reaching the top, a little short of breath from the stairs, your climbing efforts will be rewarded by a fantastic veiw of the land & sea scape. Located at the opening of Delaware Bay, one can observe the southern tip of New Jersey on the opposite side of the bay. Until learning of Cape Henlopen thru my younger brother, I was unaware of the profound effect the Germans had acquired themselves w/ the use of the U-boats. If in the area, youll short change yourself of some very interesting history if not stopping. PEACE!
