Virginia Beach

Last week, in spite of the pending Hurricane Earl, I took off to go visit my dear cousin C who lives in VA Beach. Lucky for me (more for her) she lives about 1 mile from the beach and boardwalk! I spent a great deal of time sitting by the sea, thinking, writing, ogling, and thinking some more.
Here are a few images from my trip!
Virginia Beach pre-Earl
 I had the beach mostly to myself. There were a few other families out there, but it was nice and quiet with lots of space to spread out. Its "moments of clarity" like these that inspire creativity and emotion in me.
Local wildlife!

Obligatory self-portrait- with chocolate. Actually, sugar free, fat free, fudge bar. Not that great.

Red flag warning!
 I found this to be an interesting sight! The sign on the chair explains that red flags mean there are dangerous conditions. Gotta love how the flag is very weather-beaten, and the chair/stand is leaning heavily to one side! This was taken about 6 hours before the supposed hurricane (which was just a tropical storm when it got to us) was due to hit.
King Neptune greets you.

More wildlife

The morning after the storm my cousin C and I took a nice long walk on the beach. It was by far my favorite part of the visit. We had lots of laughs and girl talk as we walked along the churning sea.

 Even all stirred up and wild, I still love the ocean.

 This is what happens when you go walking along the ocean in a crazy tide. You get soaked from head to toe. More than one rogue wave snuck up and attacked my back side. It takes a brave woman with no sense of shame to post a picture of her butt like this.

 Under the boardwalk, down by the sea...

Honestly, I can't get enough of the ocean. The sheer strength of it marvels me. One of my only really big goals in life is to live by the ocean.


  1. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing!

    Sisty Ugler Here,
    Did you take that last dark blue picture of the ocean or is it from the web? It looks like it could be a poster.

  3. Yes, I really did take that picture! Isn't it beautiful?
