Also took one of the great spot we had and the little narrow road through the trees. Sue did a great job as usual of finding this in the dark.
|Road was about a mile long winding through the trees|
|At the end of the road a lovely clearing|
Today we were going to cross the Chesapeake bridge tunnel. The Chesapeake project is is a four-lane 20-mile-long vehicular toll crossing of the lower Chesapeake Bay. There are three bridges that are about 6 miles long each, with two tunnel under the bay that are about a mile long each.
The tunnels are a little bit scary in the motorhome because the lanes are normal width with no shoulder at all. You have to keep it between the lines for a mile while going 55 mph and trucks coming at you and you realize your mirrors are only missing each other by a foot or so. I must admit I wouldn't want to go more than a mile like that because the tension is as the very top of the scale. Good for the old ticker.
|And here come the trucks|
|No room for error. (Sorry about the reflection)|
Once out of the last tunnel we could see Virginia Beach in the Distance.
|Destination is at the end of the bridge on the left.|
We started to see some fields of Cotton by the road. That is one operation I want to stop and watch, but we didn't see anyone harvesting or picking today.
Sue found us a lovely little spot by the mouth of the Neuse River. I think we are on the approach path for the naval base across the river. Lots of jets flying over.
|That is white sand not snow.|
Here is where we travelled today. We are near the beach in the Croatan National Forest
