Time is Slipping Thru my Fingers Like Sand in the Wind

I am getting a bit behind on my scheduled posts!  Not good, Been so busy here on vacation, that I can barely get a full post in; & edit all of the days pix, before I doze off again.

I will say that I have yet to finish editing all of the beach pictures. Yesterday, Thursday, My Fiance & I went to a Cathedral with some astounding history to it!! That I can not WAIT to edit the captures, & Post Pictures!! have managed to capture a LOT of historical buildings here, as well as some beachy captures, too!

I hope I will have time to get some (Editing) time tomorrow, & Get things together. 🙂 Good night & Peace till then! Ami

The Childrens Museum (Saturday)

We all went to the Children’s Museum, Yesterday (Saturday). Thankfully we didn’t get lost today, well I did, but Bobbie knew where we were…. Lol! They were holding an Art Show in the rd we needed to go down for the museum, so we ended up parking in a garage, & walking 5 mi. To get to the Museum. After the museum, we made a pit stop @ walmart, & then off to the hotel, & let the girls swim. Dinner was Chick-fil-a, & now we are dropping the girls off @ their place. I love those girls!!! Now for some US time!!!! HISTORIC JAMESTOWN tomorrow !!! (My Request) & Beach Day Monday/Tuesday. 🙂

The State For Lovers {Day 2}

So, Yesterday {Tuesday} was Day 2 in the State For Lovers. It rained all day!! Blahhh…

We got up around 0900 hrs, & rounded all of our stuff up, packed it all in the car,  got ready to head out to get some munchies, & find the hotel we had reserved for a major part of the rest of this week. {By the Airport in Norfolk, Va.}

Before we headed out, we stood on the balcony of out room, overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, {Our Little Slice of Heaven}. Talking about the days plans, & how long we had till we were due to pick the girls up from school, that day. {My Fiance has 2 little girls, {{ABSOLUTE ANGELS I MUST SAY!!}} from his 1st Marriage.}

Yes,  have posted captures of the beach, & some of the presents the ocean left us on the beach. I will have to post a few more later, because there are SO many! {If you know me, & you know me well, I am an avid Photographer; I usually take about 1,000 pictures {Minimum} in 1 hour.}

Once we left the C.B. Beach & Hotel, It was about 1100 hours by then. So, we headed out to get lunch, or so I thought that was the plan. Bobbie & I were having a good conversation, & started to realize I had no clue where we were, … I thought we were going to get FOOD! {Yes, I know, I know. I have a one track mind when it comes to food!}

So we pull up to this HUGE, huge, huge warehouse building, with all kinds of assorted advertisements on it. So my Fiance pulls up, & says, OK Let’s Go! & I just looked & him, @ the building, & back @ him, thinking, Where are we??  Well, we get inside, & the first thing I do is squeal @ how big this place was!! Every direction I looked, {I kid you not!!} there was something to do with WEDDING!!! check out this place!! We spent 2 hours in there, I got a good $50 worth of wedding essentials, & the web address so I could go back & shop some more!! {I spent another 2 hours on the website last night!!} Intrigued? >> http://www.wineandcake.com/

Don’t take my word for it, Go check it out for yourself!!

So after the 2 hours worth of WEDDING!! shopping, We set out for lunch, We ended up @ Doumars. 2nd best place in Va to eat!! 🙂

Off to attach the pictures, & Viola!

The state for Lovers!! {Virginia} May 2012

Alas! We are in the lovely State for Lovers!! {Virginia} I am sitting here in out hotel suite, typing a quick little post, Hoping that I don’t get too carried away! 🙂

Update:: So, we managed to leave last night around 20:00 hours, and we crossed the Virginia state line, about 07:00 hours this morning. When we left home, I drove almost 6 hours, we were about 1/2 way thru S.C., when I started nodding off, & had to ask my honey to drive. He ended up driving over @ the {Va.} state line & napped for a few hours. {Better to be safe, than sorry!!} I was already asleep, when he reached the Va. state line, he said he tried to wake me up, but I was dead to the world. LMAO, I had only been up 48 hours prior to that! I hadn’t been able to sleep because I was so excited about our trip, & I was trying to make lists of what to do, & what to remember to pack.

When we got closer to our home away from home, {My Honey was born & raised here in Va.}, We drove to Virginia Beach, & scouted out the local 3-star hotels. We are staying at a Super 8 hotel, right on the beach!! I am ecstatic!! I knew there was a reason I brought my best tripod!! I will post pictures later… I have only taken about 45 since we left home last night! ^_^

To my left is my Fiance, taking a short nap, trying to kill his migraine, before we go see the family. To my right, thru these 2 huge bay windows, is the lovely Virginia Beach. The water is gorgeous, & calm. There is a rocky dune/wave breaker out a little bit, & barely anyone on the beach. Guess what?? I forgot my bathing suit!!!

Until we meet again, . . . Hopefully I will have some pictures ready to post. ^_^  Ciao!!
