It's Not a Vacation 'Til You See Water

Any chance I get, I love a stop at the ocean. That vast water and sky helps to put life into perspective. And its beautiful.
Our first stop for spring break has been Viriginia Beach. It's not really bathing suit weather, though there were folks trying to soak in the cold sunlight.  Even in jeans and long sleeves, I was cold, but it was a wonderfully, sunny day and you can't pass up chances to get your feet in the sand.
We rented a tandem bike and rode up and down the boardwalk. Good thing it wasn't too crowded, since my kids apparently aren't the best co-drivers. Hard to believe, all our beach visits, this was our first bike rental.
On our way to the beach, we also squeezed in a college visit drive-thru tour at Hampton University. With a high school sophomore, college apps around the corner, so we want to get at least an idea of colleges.
It was a good start for the spring break week.
