(the last of my vacation posts)
Virginia Beach, Virginia
I have never visited anything quite like Virginia Beach. It was a wonderful experience. The sand was a yellowish color and the water was sooo warm. California's sand is more white with grey and the water is almost always pretty cold. I guess I enjoyed it so much because I had never seen anything like it before. I couldn't say, "oh this reminds me of the other place I have been."
It was totally unique to me. The boardwalk with all the shops was pretty neat but, I didn't have much time to look around so I just grabbed a couple boxes of salt water taffy, a must, and we headed back to get dinner with the whole big family. I think I heard myself tell the host at the restaurant that we needed a table for seventeen-and that's with seven people from the family that weren't there. Maybe to some that's not a lot but I came from a smaller family so it takes getting used to. :) I love Sean's family though-they are great.
("No Profanities at the beach")-I thought this is strange and funny. Hehe
Now the scary part was that there were some scary parts where we were. For a couple of days, we couldn't find normal places to hang out that we felt comfortable and safe in other than our hotel room(boring!). Aside from that and the underwater tunnel that we had to drive thru (TWICE!!!)-It was a great visit and my brother-in-law's wedding was amazingly beautiful.
On our way home, we stopped in
Which was beautiful. We will have to explore more of it next time when we have more time.
We found Williamsburg's Famous Cheese Shop,known for their famous sandwiches, and grabbed
a bite to eat..
(A great homemade-bread roast beef sandwich with lots of mayo and spiced mustard. Pretty good.)
(Celery Soda-Very odd taste that you could get used to and like. I am thinking a cupcake made with this soda would be interesting. I would have to special order it though because I haven't seen it around here.)
Anyway, back to more serious food blogging for the future. I have been sick so it's been good that I have all this vacation to share with you.
