On my first (attempted) visit to Fort Delaware in May of 2012, this was as close as I got to the fort. I hadn't bothered to consult their website before leaving, and thus was unaware that the ferry on which one must ride to get to Pea Patch Island runs six days a week in the summer, but in May it only runs on the weekends. And I was there on a Monday. In May. Sooo tantilizingly close I was to that starfort!!!
