DELAWARE TRIP PART 2
U.S. 13 Virginia (Page 2)

U.S. 13 is the main north-south route through the eastern shores of Virginia and Maryland. It provides the only north-south crossing of the Chesapeake Bay via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, which connects Virginia Beach to Cape Charles. On Day Nine of Delaware Trip Part Two, I drove U.S. 13 from MD 675 near Salisbury, Maryland, to Interstate 64 in Norfolk, Virginia.

Eastern Shore.

To the left in the far distance is (presumably)

Wonder how much it costs to live in those
apartments on the right side of this picture...
