Aunt Sue arrived to our house late Friday night so we took her to Dam Neck beach yesterday. This was our first trip to the beach since moving to VA. My friend Maureen told us about Dam Neck and she was spot on. Convenient parking, shower/bathroom facility (although I will admit the showers could use more water pressure!), etc. We picked up lunch at Subway, took a cooler with drinks, grapes, and snacks...arrived at the beach around 11:30 and stayed until 5:00 p.m.! Maureen and Kristi met up with us and hung out for a few hours and that was really nice. I must say it was quite relaxing once we finally got all of the gear onto the beach. The kids really had fun, except maybe for Tinna, who didn't want to go anywhere near the water because of the waves. She's been too long on the Gulf and Pacific coasts, I guess. Hopefully she'll outgrow her fears because I think we'll be going to Dam Neck quite a bit while we live here.
