Finally blogged about our drive from St. Augustine to New Jersey. The alternate title would be An Interstate, A Highway, A Ferry, and A Bridge Out In The Ocean.

    I've have been across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge but not the the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel - but have heard of it. Sounds like you made your trip interesting by avoiding I-95 which is never fun!

    The thought of a bridge going underwater, not just once but twice, would terrify me! Hurrah for you both!

    I don't like bridges at all and this one sounds like a lot to not like. LOL. I have used ferries but just short ones. As I have gotten older I don't trust things like planes, trains, boats, cars, bridges like I used to.

    Wow does that take me back. When Joe was stationed in Newport News, VA, that was exactly our route north and then west to my parents near Harrisburg.

    We haven't been on the bridge/tunnel is decades. Now it's Rt 29 north. Still avoiding I95.

    Thank you so much for your blog! I love travelling with you. I am familiar with St. Augustine, which I loved when we visited many years on our way to Orlando, and have been to Rehoboth Beach, also many years ago.

    I've always wanted to do the Chesapeake Bay bridge/tunnel, but probably never will now, and the ferry sounds lovely. I was surprised, though, that on such a big ferry you were allowed to stay in your car. Two car ferries that I know about, one from Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island and the other from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland make everyone go upstairs, to lounges, for the crossings.

    Peter and I experienced the Chunnel, from England to France to return, by train, which was fun, but over way too quickly.

    Looking forward to your next blog,

    I loved the details and map of the trip. I am not familiar with the east coast and it was very informative. Can hardly wait for the cross country trip

    Did I hear you correctly? Never heard of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel? Well, now you have. I'd long known of it and, then, in 1997, had the occasion to take it when I drove up from Norfolk. It was quite impressive, but too bad that the tunnel portion offers no views!

    I always though St. Augustine was one of the most prettiest towns in America.
