Apr 29, 2019 - Virginia

Another 200 miles and 4 hours brings us to Virginia Beach. We dropped off I-95 just after crossing into Virginia and took US-58 up through Norfolk and into Virginia Beach. We're just North of the beach/hotel/honky tonk area in First Landing State Park. It's a little expensive for a state park, but we've got a secluded site where we can't even see the neighbors. We're back right up to the dunes and it's just a short walk to the beach. Today is way too cold and damp for the beach with temps in the low 50's. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny...

Mar 25, 2019 - On Our Way!

Left the house around 6am for the long flight to Japan. Arrived early in Atlanta (hooray) and will depart at 12:25 but with the 14 hour flight and 13 hour time change we won't arrive until late tomorrow afternoon at Narita airport. Then we'll take the express train to Tokyo Station and from there a short walk to our hotel. Fortunately we're arriving a day before the tour starts so we'll have a day to try to adjust to the time change. Looks like there are only 12 people on our tour with two tour guides.

Nov 5, 2018 - Little Creek Campground (11/1 - 11/30/18)

We arrived in Virginia Beach on November 1st. This time we were in site #42, the same site we had the very first time we stayed here. We spent the month of November so that we would be there for our daughter's birthday and Thanksgiving. We were able to spend time with our son and grandsons. For most of the time there, the weather wasn't the best. We had lots of rain and it was a bit colder than we like. We visited friends and Tim got to play golf. Thanksgiving was wonderful. We had the whole family, plus a friend of Joanne's (Tim's sister)....

May 8, 2018 - Little Creek Campground (5/1 - 5/10/18)

We had originally made a reservation at Northwest River Park in Chesapeake because we couldn't get a place here. I checked again before we left Georgia and was lucky enough to get a place through May 11th. This is the first time we have been here since January. The site we had this time is our favorite so far, #35. We also spent a couple of days in Tim's sister's driveway. We were in VB for my birthday, May 7th. Had lots of fun! We were able to see some of our grandsons' baseball games. Also, my grandbunny had his 10th birthday on May 3rd....
