Summer 2013 - June 29 to July 7 - Barrier Islands, VA and Annapolis, MD

On June 29th, we traveled to the Barrier Islands off the coast of Virginia. Near Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk and Virginia Beach this area is part Virginia and part Maryland. Below are photos of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel from Hampton, VA to the Barrier Islands. There is a bridge, then a tunnel then a bridge, then a tunnel and it ends in a bridge.
