Pictures tell it better

It is Sunday for this post to the blog but we wanted to post some pictures of our extra day and night in Virgina Beach on Saturday. A nice walk on the beach showed some interesting creatures. The first is someone Robin and I thought we knew:









We also meet someone who had no backbone at all:









There is much to do on the boardwalk at Virgina Beach. But, hugging your gal is the best:









After a night on the boardwalk there was some heavy driving. We took the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel System. It is a marvelous bridge over and tunnel under the Chesapeake Bay. It is 22 miles long and you are above water for awhile and then below water for awhile. Here is a little video clip. Robin is good at this ... but remember, David is the one driving so careful for her to get the perfect clip:

Once we got over, or under, the water, we stopped on the Island of Chincoteague (Chi-ka-tee-gee). We are staying in a Bed and Breakfast and the room is actually smaller than the Stateroom on the Boat back home. We feel right at home.

There is a huge wildlife preserve where wild horses run free on the island along the ocean. We could see them but they were too far away to capture on film. We did get some great shots of a Bald Eagle; Deer (like we don't see those); and, water fowl (that we see each day outside our boat at home). But, another great day on the Harley and the East Coast. Tommorrow, Atlantic City via the highway and a ferry ride. Miss you all.
