Chesapeake Thousand Trails and a trip to Yorktown VA.

After our very busy week in Myrtle Beach, we have now moved a bit further north to Gloucester, Virginia where the Chesapeake Thousand Trails Resort is situated on the west bank of the Piankatank River. We are very fortunate in that it is open so early in the season. I am not sure if it open all year or not. This is a very big campground with a lot of water around it. Mature trees and a small beach. It must be a very pretty campground in summer, however, right now it is pretty bleak. The weather has been cold with a nasty wind bowing over the icy waters of the river. We have just been taking things easy as Michael has not received his temporary drivers licence. We are really hoping it will be emailed to us by my sister in the next few days.

We found a take out place called Diggs where bought some wonderful crab cakes, devilled crab and crab muffins. Yummy!

My apologies for not getting my posts updated as I have been unwell.

Our first site on the banks of the Piankatank River. Very wet and cold.

Then we moved further away from the river onto a bigger site, away from the icy cold wind.

Timmy says, Yes please can we stay here next year?

Very calm on the river

Timmy loved running around and digging in the soft sand on the river bank

The campground is right on the river.
