VA Beach & Coming Home

The day after the wedding, we planned to fly out later, in case we wanted to do anything with Sara's family. Since it appeared everyone was exhausted and since the newlyweds were eager to take off on their honeymoon, we just packed up and headed to VA Beach (Virginia Beach, but they call it "Vah" beach) for a few hours.

It was hot & humid. Everyone was kind of hungry and crabby. Since we had they long night of travel ahead, that was also a kind of oppressive cloud hanging over the day. The beach there was pretty different... there were a TON of people and they were packed 5 and 6 deep from the water. It was interesting and fun seeming... too bad we couldn't have maybe stayed a night.

On the boardwalk

At the Pier ($2 per person to walk all the way out on it)
Surrey rental - a lot of work to pedal (for them! - it was great for me... I had not pedals - haha!)

At Dairy Queen
Ahhh... the romance
At Norfolk Int'l
Playing Monopoly Deal
Riding the SkyWay between terminals at DFW
We left DFW over an hour late because of an elusive "seat cushion". We flew into LAX. We got our luggage and caught the tram to the parking lot. Then a 45 minute drive home (no traffic at 2:15AM). We got home to our house at 3AM.
We were all beat like Pete.
