A great shot of the bridge from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel website - CBBT.com Notice the gaps in the bridge? That's where there's a tunnel instead so both vehicle traffic, and boat traffic can move unimpeded. It's nearly 17 miles all totaled including to drive it - across both bridge and tunnel.
We started our day at a campground on I-95. We woke up fairly early and got on the road, stopping for breakfast at Cracker Barrel before turning off I-95 and heading east toward Norfolk. We would normally have spent the night at the Cracker Barrel, since they specifically allow that, but it was so hot we had to have electric hookups so we could run our air conditioner. We paid $45 for that luxury, so we made sure to take advantage of their hot tub as well!
It was a beautiful day to cross the Chesapeake, a Tuesday afternoon, little traffic and beautiful weather, Chris even drove.
There's a big cell tower in sight - that's how I'm posting this! And, we're 1.5 hours from the ferry terminal going from Lewes, DE to Cape May, NJ. We have a reservation to be on that ferry at noon tomorrow.
