Walking Virginia Beach

My husband and I walked the roadway in for 7 miles. It was quite a fun walk, we had a lot of cathing up to do. Along the way there were an abundance of birds and wildlife. We spotted some deer and they were very curious of us. We finally reached camp and set up for the nights that we had ahead of us. It sure was beautiful out here, we hiked to the beach and then to the bay where right there in front of us was an angry cottonmouth, we just ignored and respected one another and went on our merry ways. This trip was definitely a beachy experience if you like the salty air and starry night.
My wife and I found ourselves at Back Bay NWR one chilly April morning amidst flocks of birders glued to their binoculars. I thought that they were looking because the sea was beautiful that day. With the dunes to our right and crashing waves to our left, I could only think that this is what it must be like to be shipwrecked. No hotels. No condos. Only pelicans and a thousand other typrs of birds that we heard in the wind but could not see. The sea grass hushed the breeze and we walked for hours. Then we got hungry and ate seafood at a place nearby the went back and sat on the beach for the rest of the day. Being shipwrecked is the good life.
