Love The Moment In Virginia Beach

What's up dear readers? Are you starting to think about summer? Maybe a fun trip to the beach? Well I know I am! I really want to go the the beach this summer.

Especially I've got to get to Virginia Beach! If you guys recall I even posted a picture of my kids at Virginia Beach. You can look at my archives to check that out if you want. I actually was looking over some other pictures that I had taken that day. And I want to share some more with you. That is my daughter - enjoying her fun time - making a sand castle. One of her favorite things to do at the beach!

Another thing that struck me about Virginia Beach is how warm the water was! I was loving it. Being originally from New England, I am used to freezing cold ocean temperatures! I really loved how warm the water was at Virginia Beach, and even I was having fun in the warm water and riding the waves!

As you also may or may not know, we moved to Virginia last July. I can not believe it has been almost a year since we have moved here. We have been so busy with the move, work and school, that we really only had that one trip to Virginia Beach to enjoy. But we are defiantly going to change that this summer.

My husband has a weeks vacation coming up in July, so we are going to go to Virginia Beach for at least a few days. I have been doing some research on planning a trip and there is a lot of great resources to find information. 

I was visiting the  Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau  and have been getting lots of ideas about hotels, restaurants and activities at Virginia Beach. Please visit this website for yourselves to get all kinds of information about Virginia Beach.

One thing I saw when we went there was a lot of people para-sailing! There are lots of companies that provide that on Virginia Beach. And that would be something to cross of my bucket list. I would really love to try that! My husband said he would too. Maybe we can do that on our trip. That would be so cool. 

I also noticed that they have a lot of companies that do boat tours. You can have a fun excursion on a boat tour - from everything to a fishing trip to dolphin sighting. While I was there we even noticed something that looked like a pirate ship. Look at this picture I took when I was there. Isn't that cool?

Another thing I remember seeing that I really want to do - is rent some bikes. There is a whole bike path that runs along the beach. We saw all kinds of people doing that. You can even rent one that the whole family can fit in. That looked like so much fun! 

And of course, while I'm on vacation I really do not want to do any of the cooking. I was checking out Coastal Food Tours of Virginia and saw so many ways that you can enjoy all the coastal cuisine that Virginia has to offer.

There is so much to do and see at Virginia Beach. I really can not wait to get back there and really share in all the fun moments with my family!
