The September sun is still high and warm in the afternoon and the river is oh so inviting. As evening approaches, the sun is a little lower in the sky and the sunsets are breathtaking. There are many ways to partake in the poetic beauty of this area of the Delaware River made ever famous by George Washington’s crossing in 1776. Guests of the Bridgeton House often spend their afternoons whiling away the hours swimming off the dock, exploring via kayak the rugged edges and small islands of the river, or floating in a tube or raft from one small town to another. A favorite way to enjoy sunset on the river is aboard the “River Otter.” Operated out of Keller’s Landing, just a short walk from Bridgeton House, the Saturday evening sunset cocktail cruise offers guests a memorable evening on the wild and scenic Delaware River. Once aboard you can enjoy light appetizers and beverages from the Riverboat Pub while Captain Dee shares a narrative about the river and surrounding area. For the perfect ending to your day: order one of Chef Karen’s Picnic Baskets and we will have it waiting for your return to be enjoyed on your riverside porch where you can watch the lights from the bridge twinkling on the water. Come, relax unwind and enjoy all that our wonderful river has to offer.
