Monday was a dreary, blustery, wet day in Virginia Beach. It dampened our enthusiasm for visiting multiple locations. We went through the Hampton Bridge Tunnel, a smaller version of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Our first stop was at First Landing State Park. This was the first location where the Jamestown settlers landed before eventually setting their colony at Jamestown Virginia.

The park is more of a hiking and camping location although there was a educational display about the landing and the ships. We took the slow route along the ocean. We passed the older resort area, the military base area, and then the modern, fancy resort area. This section of Virginia is loaded with military bases. In addition, there seem to be multiple military museums in every town of substantial size.

Since it was not a great day for hiking, we chose not to. We turned around and heading back to Williamsburg. The evening dinner was a very nice restaurant called the Jefferson. Their stuffed boneless pork chops were excellent.
