We headed to Virginia Beach after Almes Giving on Sunday morning at Wat Lao Buddhavong. This time I made a reservation ahead of time, and it was a 3 hour drive from the temple. I’m not a huge fan of crowded beach since I grew up going to Brighten Beach in Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. Virginia Beach is not too bad as long as it’s not on a National holiday. My sister and I got up early every morning to walk.
A view from the pier.
We went to the pier the morning of July 4th, it’s $2 per person to get in. As you get closer to the fishermen area, it smelled fishy. This was taken at 7:16 am.
This is how I like to live my life, living at the beach is so calm and peaceful.
You know the saying, the early bird catches the worm, and in this case the fish.
By 8:30 am Lee was ready to test the water.
My GI Joe sister surfed with her.
By the afternoon the beach was crowded.
Bo caught a hermit crab and let it go since it would be much happier in the ocean.
The birds were eyeballing it the whole time he was holding it.
Below was the fireworks boat that was scheduled for July 4th fireworks display. We had a severe thunderstorm swept through the area, and it was cancelled. They had fireworks at a nearby town the following night, but it was too far for us to hear anything. We saw the fireworks display while walking on the boardwalk but I didn’t bright my camera with me. And by the time I got back to our room it was the finally and way too far to capture anything.
The morning of July 5th we saw dolphins.
It’s amazing to see them this close and they were out there for about 2-3 hours.
A much calmer beach after the 4th, and the weather was real nice.
These panning shots were taken from the 5th floor of our hotel room.
Seriously, text while cycling?
My dad stayed at the next room.
I heard that they revamped Myrtle Beach South Carolina, and it’s as nice as Virginia Beach now. They also have a boardwalk now, and we might have to visit on our long weekend.
