50- CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 23- May 29, 1997 Silver Lake's unique freshwater attracted pirates before tourists In addition to being attracted to goods-laden ships heading in and out of Delaware Bay, pirates of the late 1600s and early 1700s enjoyed lurking around the Delaware coast because of the ample supply of freshwater available in a number of locations just over the dunes. Rehoboth's Silver Lake, and Httle sister Lake Comegys (both pictured here), provide expan- sive stretches of freshwater within 100 yards of the briny sea. It's often been said that water in the lakes rises from deep springs that find their Dennis Fomey photo origins hundreds of miles to the west where the snows and rains of winter flow downward and eastward from the Appalachian mountains. The fresh- water lakes of Rehoboth Beach, including Lake Gerar at the north end of town, contribute to the Nation's Summer Capital's unique natural setting. Part of the Atlantie Coastal Plain, Rehoboth Beach occupies one of the few spots along the South Atlantic Coast where the mainland extends to the surf itself. The dunes, it's said, still secret some of Capt. Kidd's treasure. ]' Miles of Ocean Views Spectacular unob- structed views of the Ocean in prestigious North Shores.
