Too Much Water To Drink

Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel, located on Route 13 to runs to the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  There are so many people who are afraid to cross this bridge because of the large amount of water underneath.  The only time I am afraid is when the wind is blowing and the water is splashing up on the bridge. Yeah, that’s super scary!  I guess it’s not so bad when you cross this bridge in a car, but imagine crossing in a big truck, a high-profile vehicle, you have to slow your roll and pay closer attention to what’s going on around you.

The scenery off this bridge is beautiful! Nothing but water for a few minutes, ships crossing over the tunnel, you may be able to catch a picture or two when that happens.  My view maybe a little better than others because I sit up higher. There is a restaurant located at the first tunnel you come to when crossing from the Norfolk side called The Virginia Originals & Chesapeake Grill.  I have not had the chance to stop through but I am sure it’s good. You can get any fresher seafood than being right on the water. The many reviews I’ve read, some good some bad, but you can say that about any establishment!  The speed limit is where it should be. Traveling any faster may create problems you don’t want.  I don’t think that you will ever be that thirsty!

The best time to cross is only when its a clear sunny day, so you can see everything! It is totally amazing!

Looking down the middle of both bridges.  Road work constantly on bridge to make sure it is always in good condition.

Seafood restaurant off the bay.  You know that you are the freshest seafood at this place.  One day I am going to eat there!
There are many shops along Route 50/301 that I want to visit but the area is definitely not made for big trucks.  The views from this bridge is breathtaking.  The water is beautiful, especially when it is filled with all different size boats, recreation and/or fishing.  If ever you are in this area of the Eastern Shore, stop in for a visit!  I truly recommend it!
