THOSE FAST JETS!OUR PESTY LITTLE SQUIRREL FRIENDNAVY ALL THE WAY
Today to keep us busy from dwelling on Carolyn's surgery, we walked the beach and met Mark for lunch at.............OK TOM & PHYLLIS..............ARE YOU READY FOR THIS>>>>>Murphy's, A Grand Irish Pub & Restaurant. It was very good. The food was great & not really that expensive considering it is one block back from the beach. Now Bill & I want to go back some evening to see what the entertainment is like. If you come & meet us we will take you Tom, along with your bride!!

After eating we walked the 20 blocks back to our truck. It's nice to walk the boardwalk or past the stores & never go into buy anything. Sales, sales, sales. But still more than I want to pay and every store is the same. I love the "where are you from, want a vacation package for.....". We got on-line & bought our tickets for our Anniversary Cruise for the end of the month & saved 30%. The price online was already less than what they were offering! What a bunch of scammers.
Walking along the beach & the scuptures & sights:
Fishing Pier at Virginia Beach, VA
School of fish sculptures
Artist at Work
Old Coast Guard Station
Band Shell getting ready for music on boardwalk
King Neptune Sculpture looking down boardwalk
Ship at sea
Virginia Beach Naval Aviation Monument - Very Impressive
Well, that about wraps up the last couple of days.
Our legs were really tired by the time we got back from the beach. So we just sat & relaxed the rest of the day. I finished my book & played a few games of solitaire. Since I didn't finish all my lunch, I had that for supper. That open faced Reuben Sandwich was delicious though. Would have tasted better if I hadn't had to warm it up though. Never as good as when it is first placed in front of you. Somethings the microwave just doesn't help.
Until next time.......The Traveling Cardinal's
