Jun 26, 2018 - Virginia’s Eastern Shore

When we moved from TT Chesapeake Bay to this new location, we weren’t sure about some aspects of getting over here, so one day about 3 days prior we “pre-drove” the route. Doing that gave us much more confidence. You see the route involved going through three (3) tunnels that go under the waters of Chesapeake Bay and the James River! ! ! Doing the pre-drive was good, in that, we learned how much the tolls would be, $31 and that we had to pull over to the vehicle inspection area for LP gas inspection. They want to make sure it’s turned off,...

Jul 11, 2015 - Virginia Eastern Shore

This is a planned 2-night stop in a small town on the Eastern Shore. One again the park we are staying at is lovely and very well maintained; right on the water. Unfortunately we had bad weather. It rained almost our entire time here so we did not get to see too much. We drove thru several small waterfront towns but due to the heavy rains we did not get out of the car very much other than to have a very good dinner. The restaurant was in a small town called Wachapreaque which is directly on the water. If the weather had been nicer we would...

Oct 31, 2013 - Virginia's Eastern Shore

Day 238 - 241 of The Big Trip The campground at the Bethany Beach National Guard Training Facility is a treasure. All weekend, the only people there were the gate guard, the Andersons and us. It was peaceful. Right out our door, the water was just a few yards away. It was kind of a shame to leave such a nice spot. We've developed a pattern of late morning starts and short driving days. Leaving Bethany Beach, we drove through Ocean City, MD. We couldn't get any closer to the water, because of the multitude of hotels which line the beach....

Jun 4, 2012 - Virginia's Eastern Shore

We're getting ready to leave Virginia soon,,,, but we couldn't do that without seeing the Eastern Shore's of Virginia. After the settlement of Jamestown in 1607, Capt. John Smith explored the Eastern Shore of Virginia and scribed this famous first impression,"HEAVEN AND EARTH SEEMED NEVER TO HAVE AGREED BETTER TO FRAME A PLACE FOR MAN'S COMMODIOUS AND DELIGHTFUL HABITATION." I couldn't have said it better myself! The Shore's natural beauty, enhanced by a beautiful state park and two national wildlife refuges offers a refreshing change of...

May 31, 2011 - Virginia

We have so busy touring and moving, moving and touring. I feel like I have had the good fortune to attend a hands on course about the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. What a glorious time we have been having traveling through historic Virginia. We have been busy. I have included a map of our movements to give you an idea what we have been doing. We are currently at a Thousand Trails park called Virginia Landing. It is located on a strip of land on Hogs Head Bay on the Atlantic Ocean. It is 92 degrees with 80+ % humidity, and mosquito...

Jun 5, 2010 - Virginia Landing

Virginia Landing Virginia Landing is a Thousand Trails park located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. If you look at the map you will see that this eastern shore is a long peninsula stretching down from Maryland creating barrier protecting the mainland from the Atlantic. The massive bay created between this peninsula and the Mainland of Virginia is Chesapeake Bay. We are camped on the seaside of the peninsula, several miles from the speck of a town called Quinby. Nothing there, not even a store. Just a small fishing marina and a few houses....

May 24, 2008 - Chesapeake crossing

Crossing the Chesapeake - Saturday afternoon The freeways and streets of Norfolk are busy, even on a holiday Saturday, but Lucy did us proud and led us right to the Norfolk Costco. We gassed the RV and did some shopping, then got back on the highway and headed for the Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel crossing. We came to the toll both and paid our $17.00 toll. We had turned off our propane at Costco. Almost immediately we were on the first bridge and looking out at the enormous mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The crossing consists of a bridge - tunnel...
