« Welcome to Delaware », Ocean City, MD

Leaving Ocean City, Maryland, and entering Fenwick Island, Delaware. Named after Thomas Fenwick. « Some legends contend that Fenwick swam ashore at Fenwick Island after being thrown overboard by pirates. Most historians do not believe that this happened. It is, however, likely that Fenwick’s future son-in-law did swim ashore. William Fassett swam ashore after being cast off by a group of pirates. He would go on to marry Fenwick’s daughter, Mary and claim the land of Fenwick Island for himself. »(Town of Fenwick Island.)
