Dewey Beach 2012 – The Trip

Posted by lori . 7 Comments


Following our friends

Last Thursday, we returned from our vacation in Dewey Beach with our friends, Tyler and Amy, and their 3 greyhounds.  Dewey Beach, Delaware is a little over 700 miles from our home in Indiana, traveling through Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

“Are we there yet?”

Last year, we rented a 15-passenger van and drove together.  This year, our friends took their vehicle with their 3 houndies and we took our vehicle with our 3 houndies.

Sometimes we switch positions

Fortunately, the hounds travel very well.  They settle in and spend most of the time sleeping.

Following our friends through the tunnel

During the trip, we traverse two engineering marvels.  We get to travel through the Allegheny Mountain Tunnel which was constructed in 1939.  The Alleghenies comprise the rugged western-central portion of the Appalachian Mountain Range.

And travel over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

What a bridge!

Opened in 1952, the bridge is 4.3 miles, shore-to-shore.
