We made a short side trip to Virginia Beach last week so we could say we have stood in all three US oceans (Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf Coast). Jackie was excited about finally seeing the ocean.
The problem was actually seeing the ocean! We are used to wide open beaches with people here and there. At 2 PM on Friday, Virginia Beach was packed with people and vendors.
But at least you could go into the water without danger of hypothermia, unlike back home.

Quite the comedown, isn’t it? Knowing the traffic at the beach and the fact that the beaches are so small, I don’t see them as a selling point.
Next time you come through here, run up 460 to the Petersburg battlefield (church w/ Tiffany windows there), or out to Appomattox.
Fascinating history here.
And as always, the Plaid Turnip awaits.
We did some of the history last time, and would certainty like to do more! Thanks for the time together.
