Good timing, left Lancaster with a major storm coming up the Eastern Seaboard. The rain hit around 6PM and was heavy. Over 3 inches at Cape Charles where I was at Arlington Farms, a very pleasant HARVEST HOST. Early morning around 0530 I crossed the Chesapeake Bay bridge in heavy rain and wind. Just glad it was open. Crossing was not an issue. Amazed for some people will not cross it anytime. Sure saves time not having to drive through DC and deal with all that traffic too.
What an engineering marvel . Construction began in the early 1960's and was open to traffic in 1964.
Seventeen and a half miles across the inlet sea. The longest bridge of its type in the world. Look up the history on the internet, a fascinating read.
The day prior to the crossing and before storm; spent a couple of hours looking for the wild horses
on Assateague Island. They were there but to far to photograph. Had to leave because of the storm coming in. Did see quite a bit of water fowl. The light level was. so low had to use a high ISO, please forgive the grainy image plan on spending several days.
Writing this post I am at my son's home in Virginia Beach. And the joke of the Season is, I have driven over 3,500 miles to spend Christmas with him and the evening I arrived, he was deployed to Greece the early morning of the next day. Hopefully will return Christmas Eve - perfect gift!
Again wishing you all a very Merry Christmas
See You Down The Road
