We had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with family in Virginia Beach for a long, fun-filled weekend. The weather cooperated and was gorgeous and our accommodations were right on the beach with a beautiful view of the Atlantic.
These pelicans are so huge it’s amazing that they can fly! Other family members were lucky enough to see dolphin playing in the surf.
On our last day (this morning!) I woke up really early to catch the sunrise and it did not disappoint. The sun rose slightly before slipping behind the clouds and as soon as the rich warm colors disappeared it started to rain.
One of my dreams and goals in life is to live ocean-side. I love the smell of the salt water, the sound of the waves and the feel of the sand. I love the laid back beach lifestyle. But, for now, I will just have to look forward to our summer vacation in Maine.
