We finally got on the road around 10:00 a.m. Supposedly, it only takes 4-4 1/2 hours to reach Greenbackville, VA; however, when you're driving a 38' MH, towing a car and driving around 60 mph, of course, it's going to take longer.
As we approached the second tunnel, through the fog that was beginning to roll in, we saw the largest cargo ship any of us had ever seen. We were like, "OH MY GOSH, that ship just rolled over the tunnel."
We safely made it across Chesapeake Bay and approximately an hour later, we arrived at our destination: Tall Pines Harbor Campground in Sanford, VA. When I was researching campgrounds near the kids, I found Tall Pines, which had wonderful reviews. We were in such a hurry when we finally arrived, we failed to get a picture of the office/store area where we checked in. It is new and very nice and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. You can see it at this site -- if you're interested. http://www.tallpinesharbor.com/
They had sites located in the tall pines, but we chose a site that was clear to the sky so we would have good reception for our satellite. However, we didn't stay around very much to actually watch TV. We soon learned that there was so much to see and do and so little time. We would like to go back when the kids are not with us and we are not on a time schedule -- we are retired, you know, we shouldn't be in such a hurry. After arriving, we jumped in the car and made our way to Jon, Mindy and Allen's house in Greenbackville, approximately 30 minutes away. We were starving and couldn't wait to see them and eat the delicious Mexican pork Carnitas, cheese dip, beans, etc. Mindy had waiting for us.
Below is our campsite. As you can see, we had plenty of room. We had neighbors on both sides when we first arrived, but by the end of the weekend -- when I actually had time to take a pic -- they were gone. However, the owner said it would fill up fast by the end of the week -- there was a truck camper rally on the weekend...lol.
