Ahhhhhhhh...



Well, I'm all caught up, once again. I had a great trip to the beach and some fun times searching for the perfect treasures for the Marie Antoinette swap. The beach was great, sun and rain. All of it was fabulous. I even delivered a order of angels for my friends shop there at Virginia Beach.
And the Angels for Brianna Auction looks like it was a great success. What an honor that was for me to be a part of. So I want to share some pictures of all my good times and travels, hope you enjoy.



Well Good Morning Sun Shine!
This first picture is of what we saw first thing in the morning out our balcony at the hotel, right on the beach. What a view. And this was the best time to catch a glimpse of the dolphins frolicking in the water. Although they were also right out there with the people too. One surfer was trying to get real close but those dolphins out smarted him every time.


There is so much History here its hard to keep track of it all. But they have done some great things in Virginia Beach to celebrate it 400th birthday. These next few pictures are some of the beautiful things to see...

I call these two King Neptune and Lady Virginia. He is set right outside the big beautiful Hilton Hotel on the Beach on 31st street. Look at the abs on this guy. It is a beautiful sculpture I always visit him when I'm there.















Here are more pictures in the daylight...

How many crunches do you think this guy does everyday?







































Then a storm rolled in , literally! It rolled. But it was great too.

This rolled in from the left...




and this rolled in from the right.







It was actually great to watch the storm so up close and personal. I hadn't done that since I lived in Chicago at the wee age of 8.
And this was the beach life saving police getting people out of the water and off the beach. We heard him on his loud speaker say to a guy in the water, "GET OUT OF THE WATER" The guy comes running out of the water, then we hear "AND PUT SOME CLOTHS ON"! Really, a ocean streaker. Those poor dolphins.
But the sun came out again and I was back on the sand, with my summer read. Only got 3 chapters in so far, I will have to read on the deck at home I guess. It was great and can't wait to go back.







Here are more random pictures of Virginia Beach, VA...




























A tribute to the military.













And to close this is the view at night, looking across the city, sun going down, Ahhh...
Ya know I don't think I appreciated it enough when I lived here, I was less then 10 miles for the Ocean. But I sure do appreciate it now. The beach is forever a part of me.
