Just a heads up, dogs are not permitted on the VA side of the island....not even in the car. We were unable to hike for this reason. Otherwise a pleasant drive up the Eastern Shore...

It was a nice drive and a well needed rest from hiking.

Today was a nice early summer day. Can you guess how busy it was? But well worth it.

This is one of those drives you have to undertake if you really want to experience a particular culture and scenery - in this case, the Chesapeake. You're not going to experience it on I-95! It's a slow go, and can be busy, but if you want to feel the bay and ocean environment, this is a great place to do it.
