On Good Friday, April 3, we enjoyed the beauty of the morning sunrise. We went for a walk on the Virginia Beach boardwalk, and we enjoyed lunch at a pancake house.
After lunch, we returned to our hotel. We spent the next 4 hours relaxing, either in our room or on the balcony. I intended to do a great deal of reading, while on vacation. I found it difficult to concentrate when reading, though. There were just too many photo opportunities afforded from our 8th floor balcony!
The horses were corralled a short way up the beach from our hotel.
I saw several dogs who looked like they were enjoying the beach and surf just as much as their human masters.
We met our friends, Denise and Nic, at 5:00 pm for dinner at Margie and Ray’s Seafood Restaurant. The four of us ordered two Hurricane Margie Platters. The platters cost $37.99 each. Each platter contained generous portions of Shrimp, Scallops, Crab Cakes, Clam Strips, Oysters, Fish Filets, French Fries, Hush Puppies, and Homemade Cole Slaw. There was enough food on one platter to feed all four of us! We each carried out a box filled to the brim. Bob and I planned to reheat our leftovers for Saturday’s dinner.
The last time we had seen Denise was in September 2013, when we vacationed together for a week at the Outer Banks. We met Nic for the first time during that vacation. It was so good to see Denise again and to spend more time with Nic, getting to know him better.
I hope 18 months doesn’t pass again, before we see each other!
There is still much more to share with you about our Easter vacation in Virginia, so please come back soon!
