Virginia Beach and Russ

Steve's b'day was the 11th of May and Moms Day the 14th. We decided to take a few days to Va. Beach to relax and even though it was chilly _ a day at the beach is still a day at the beach I hear said by many.  

Me taking a picture of steve shortly after arriving of him taking a pix along the beach from 12th floor. We stayed at the Wyndam in Virginia beach on the North End. Much more quiet here.

waves kicking up on the 11th
May 12 and 13 the same thing.   Love hearing the sound of the waves crashing.  Made for a good nights sleep for us.

looking down to area outside the hotel restaurant

I see you

I want some of these faux rocks or boulders.  I knew this one wasn't real because of the hole in it.

moonlight over the ocean

sun rising

This was Saturday and of course the sun would come out and the temperature at 80 degrees this day as we leave.

We will be back

Russ will be back too.  He will travel with us from now on.   Adalyn and Genevieve picked him out to give to Opa on his b'day.  They love stuffed animals and Opa does too.  He is now our traveling buddy.


  1. What a beautiful beach! :)


  2. Russ is cutie. You all were at the beach almost the same time as we were there. We got lucky this year and had gorgeous weather every single day. That doesn't usually happen but this year it certainly did. You are correct when saying that a day at the beach is a day at the beach no matter what the weather is.

  3. Beautiful pictures of waves.. and belated Happy birthday to Steve...:)

  4. Dearest Betsy,
    That for sure was a relaxing weekend but as usual with Murphy's Law, the good days start when we have packed up to leave!
    Hope Steve had a happy Birthday and you a special Mother's Day.

  5. Too bad about the weather but the beach is beautiful, The moonlight over the ocean photo is stunning!!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Hi Betsy. Looks like you had a lovely get-away. That is one thing I miss about living by the ocean is the sound of the waves at night or a good storm..Happy Memorial Day..xxoJudy
