Easter Vacation in Virginia – Day 2: A Morning Walk

Soon after watching the sunrise on Good Friday, we went for a walk on the Virginia Beach boardwalk. Our hotel was located at 28th Street. We walked to the fishing pier at 15th Street.  We took pictures along the way.

We paid $2.00 each to walk to the end of the fishing pier.  The view from the end of the pier was very nice!

As it turned out, it cost more than $4.00 to walk that pier.  A gust of wind pushed the hood of my hoodie off my head. Underneath the hood was my Shenandoah baseball cap.

In addition to Bob and me, there were a few other people standing at the end of the fishing pier. Everyone said “OH”, as my cap fell into the ocean.

On our way back to the hotel, we stopped at a souvenir shop where I purchased a Virginia Beach baseball cap.

We began our walk at 7:25 am and returned to our hotel at 9:05 am.

After our walk, we returned to the hotel and relaxed for a couple hours. We went to lunch around 11:30 am, choosing a restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. We took notice of The Maple Tree Pancake House during our walk.  We thought it was open only for breakfast, given its name, but then I saw a sign advertising its lunch offerings.  The Maple Tree Pancake House turned out to be a good place for lunch. Bob ordered fish and chips. I ordered a cheeseburger. The service and food was very good.

In my next blog post I will continue sharing photographs from Day 2 in Virginia Beach.

    Sorry about you having your hat lost. Something that can happen at the shore with the wind. Looks to me like Virginia Beach has not changed a whole lot. My Wife and I were there years ago, but it was during the Summer when all the kids were there. We found that there was just to much noise for us. We stayed there only 1 night and then left for Myrtle Beach. I was also stationed in Norfolk, VA at the Naval Base for a bit. One of the things you might have seen is sign’s that say “Sailors & Dog’s Keep Off The Grass!” During the Summer Virginia Beach is just full of Service personnel looking for a good time. I was one of them many years ago.

    Virginia Beach looks like an interesting place to stay awhile. Sorry about your cap, glad you replaced it asap. Wish an artist would do something on the sidewall of the hotel with the trees at the base included as a part of the art. Love Bobs cool jacket!
