Sleeping at the Toll Booth

Just over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge are the tolls, and to the right is the Eastern Shore of

 

Virginia Welcome Center. They have a large parking area for overnight travelers and tucks. Truck stops can sometimes be noisy as truckers usually leave their engines running all night for heat, power, and air conditioning.

Virginia Welcome Center, Eastern Shore

I found a quiet corner backed up against the trees. Well, it was quiet until around 4am when a Prude truck pulled in right next to me.I briefly woke, but then fell right back to sleep.

It was well lit, and felt very safe. The visitors center has restrooms, information center, etc, typical for a rest stop. Once they opened in the morning I used the facilities, filled up on water, and headed out for the Assateague Island National Seashore.
