Catching Up, Company, Bumming Around and Checking Out The State Park

Virginia Beach, VA.  Wednesday 11/09/11

48 deg. fog, no wind.

Forecast = high temp. 67 deg., sunny, light winds.

Can’t get on the Internet this morning, so again, I’m writing this using a word processor and then will cut and paste it to Blogger whenever I can get a signal.

There’s not a real lot of fog right here at the park as I’m writing this, but from all the reports on TV, the whole Virginia Beach area is socked in this morning with some areas reporting as little a .1 of a mile visibility.

Yesterday was a very nice day here. Jim worked on a light in the bay where all my hose connections are and finally ended up replacing it with a new fixture that he had originally bought for Myrddin, but never used. It’s not too often that he would need a light down there but now if he wants to hook or unhook a water/flush/sewer hose when it’s dark, he’ll be able to see what he’s doing.

He also helped Linda do a few things inside to get ready for Joe and Nancy coming for dinner.

Speaking of that, Linda put together a really nice meal yesterday.  She made a meatloaf, parsley potatoes and a yellow squash/onion dish. Along with that, she had sliced French bread and butter and of course, drinks.

Joe and Nancy got here around and as soon as they arrived, everyone sat down and enjoyed a great meal.

Joe had some work he had to do, so about he and Nancy headed back home. Then, after cleaning up, Jim and Linda watched TV for the rest of the evening.

Not a real exciting day, but a very good one. ; )

Virginia Beach, VA. Thursday, 11/10/11

55 deg. mostly cloudy, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. Widespread dense fog early in the morning. Isolated showers in the late morning and afternoon. Visibility one quarter mile or less at times early in the morning. Highs in the mid 60s. North winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.

Got a signal this morning. : )

Jim and Linda took CLT and went "bumming around" yesterday. Their first stop was at the new Forbes Candy store here in Virginia Beach. Lind bought some sugar free candy, but not a real lot as the prices have gone up quite a bit in the last few years. : (

From there, they headed out to the First Landing State Park to see if that would be a place to camp while visiting Virginia Beach. Well, CLT says that for the most part it's nice and some of the sites are close to the water, but some of the roads could be a challenge for me, there are no sewer hook-ups at any of the sites and their rates are almost $10 a day more than we're paying for off season weekly rates here at the Holiday Trav-L-Park.

From the State Park they headed to a store called Tuesday Morning. It's kind of like Big Lots, or one of those kind of stores where they stock what's available and frequently don't have the same merchandise. Linda did find a few small Christmas Presents there, but not some of the items she had hoped to find.

By mid afternoon, they were back here at the park, resting and taking naps.

Then, for dinner, they headed back over to Joe and Nancy's where Nancy cooked a very tasty chicken stir-fry.

Today, is Sami's birthday so there have been plans made to go over there this evening for a meal and cake.

Did you know that Virginia Beach has 38 miles of shoreline?

  1. I will agree, the roads in First Landing are a bit tricky. We take it slow and cautious, and we do love it there. We take a site near a boardwalk, and the pups have a great time on the beach every do we!
