|Kate and I!|
We just got back from a week in Virginia Beach. This was our first visit to that area. We usually go to the beaches in North Carolina. But we were looking for something just a little different. We stayed in Sandbridge Beach, which is a little south of Virginia Beach actually, not quite so many people. We rented a condo that was very nice, and the outside of the building was painted in bright colors. Very festive! I love going to the beach. I love sitting on the beach, reading a book, and watching the dolphins play in the waves. It's very relaxing. The other thing I love about the beach is looking for sea glass. It is so much fun to walk the beach and find little pieces of frosted glass. But we couldn't find a single piece of glass this trip.
We went to the aquarium and they had sea turtles that were only a year old, they were so cute. There were two alligators that were huge and for awhile I thought maybe they were just statues, but we did see them finally move. There were a lot of really good exhibits.
The other thing we saw in and around VA Beach, was a sculpture project called a Dolphin's Promise. Local artists decorated life sized dolphins made of fiberglass. The money raised from this project, helps to support cancer research. I don't know how may dolphins there are, but we spent some time searching for and photographing them. They are all really well done. I will post pictures of some of the ones we found later.
Here's just a couple pictures of our adventures!
