We breathed a sigh of relief crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel. There were a lot of reasons to be relieved. One was we were glad to be away from heavy traffic and deciding not to go to DC was a big part of that. Second was that we survived the 17.6 mile crossing that included an underwater tunnel half way across the bay. Lastly, the bridge toll wasn’t nearly as bad as we thought it might be.
