Home Away From Home

We are spending a few days in Virginia Beach visiting with the family. It has been a lovely trip and I will tell you more when I get home. We will be driving back up north tomorrow morning.

This is a very familiar sight on the boardwalk, the statue of King Neptune. I think he has to be one of my all-time favorite statues. The detail is exceptional.

Thank you to all who have visited my blog and to those who have left comments I will be catching up with you next week.

I have never been to Virginia Beach, but it's almost worth a trip to see that statue. Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Denise, we live about an hour or so from Virginia Beach by way of the Chesapeake Bay-Bridge bridge and tunnel. It's a costly trip from the VA eastern shore: $12each way / $17 if round trip is done within 24 hours. We don't get across the bay too often!

King Neptune is looking splendid. I have visited VA Beach but have heard it is nice. Hope y'all enjoyed your visit.
