We had a chance to slip off to Virginia Beach for 1 night, so we jumped at the chance to use Daddy's free conference hotel room.
I packed lightly and we hit the beach hard.
I snapped photos:
My daughter really enjoyed the waves (when did she stop being the toddler afraid of waves bigger than her feet?):
Lots of sand castles and pit digging occurred:
After our "relaxing" mini vacation, I drive home with my daughter only to get a call from my husband AFTER I passed through the tunnel that I had his car keys and had to turn around and go BACK through the tunnel. On a Friday afternoon. After at least a half-hour of stop-and-go congestion on the way back, I see this sign:
Glad some one's on top of the situation! In case you're wondering, it took almost 2 1/2 hours to drive from the beach through the tunnel twice and back to the beach. Longer than it "should" take to get home. But all ended well and we got home the long, scenic way.
I'm not sure that you get to call it a vacation when you spend more time in the car than on the sand...
