Today dawned bright and sunny, so we decided to go look for rain. It wonâ€™t be difficult as the Weather Channel is reporting that this is the wettest September on record since Noah recorded the flood. Ok, seriously the weather has changed out plans to head south so we will start back west today. We traveled through the Delmarva peninsula and were pleased to find that in this area there is tomatoes to break up the corn fields.
This time we crossed the Chesapeake on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. After paying the toll and starting across the reality of transitioning from above water bridge to underwater tunnel suddenly had Tess worried. Iâ€™m glad to say that the transition was successful and she is still with us. Valium works wonders. (You should also ask the Grey Ghost his Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel story)
We bypassed sunny Virginia Beach and headed for Williamsburg. After checking into a hotel and calling Joe and Sherry to see if they could join us for dinner the girls donned their helmets and headed off for Yorktown with the guys. An hour and a half later we managed to arrive at Yorktown - about 15 miles from our hotel. Worn out by our 15 mile journey we decided to spend some time by the pool and stay another night.
P.S. Vee has been doing her best to help those corn farmers by eating grits every chance she gets!
