Virginia Beach, Virginia
First Landing State Park
Well, today was moving day. We left our empty house back in Sag Harbor for the last time as it's homeowners. The moving company had come yesterday and in a mere 4 hours completely emptied the house of the contents we are keeping and took them away for storage until we buy a house in Florida. Then today, our family left in a caravan headed south. Al's mom and sister, our close friend, the 2 of us, the 2 dogs and the cat have all landed in Virginia Beach, Virginia for the next 5 days. We are visiting family here, and spending these last few days together before Al and I head to Kentucky to start our jobs at Amazon. The rest will head to Florida, and we will all meet again at Christmas.
We had a wonderful time spending the last 3+ weeks back in our hometown. There was a lot of fishing, a little golf, lots of visiting, and of course packing and cleaning. The weather did not co-operate for the most part, but we did get a few nice days in. It was so nice to visit with my brother and sister, who are the last of my family in the area. Al has a niece, an aunt and a few cousins still hanging in there as well. So we still have plenty of reasons to continue to visit the area.
It was hard leaving the homestead for the last time, but we are really loving this new lifestyle. I will always have a place in my heart for Sag Harbor, but I am also very excited by the opportunities waiting for me out there.
I promise that I will now return to picture taking and talking about the places we are traveling through. After all, that's what is most interesting, right? So, coming up: Virginia Beach!
