Virginia Beach VA 2014

The hotel room I stayed in this time was AMAZING! The Hilton Garden Inn on 33rd was newly built and I was lucky enough to stay in a corner suite that had a 270 degree view!

It was very rainy when I got there and overcast the next day, so there was no sunrise. But I nevertheless sat on the balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee and people-watched.

I watched a woman scour the sand with a metal detector (hope she eventually found something).

I also watched this guy set up every single volleyball net by himself (of which there were probably 20).

I also saw dolphins!! Their fins anyway. I love dolphins!

They were swimming fairly close to shore and some surfers. One surfer caught sight of them and looked concerned, as would anyone I’m sure if they saw a fin in the water!

The black dot on the left is the surfer and the black dot on the right is the dolphin.

The rest of the trip consisted of the aquarium and the Neptune Festival (art show and sand sculpting), which I will post separately.

Even though the sun didn’t come out until I was leaving, it was another glorious trip to the beach!
