Away for the Day
On Saturday we headed to a little spot called Tangier Island in Virginia, a tiny, peaceful little spot in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.
We went with our pilot peeps – our friends Mark & Mary. It is advantageous to have a friend who is a pilot! And fun, too, let me tell you. He’s taken us to Boston, Niagra Falls, Cape May, and Vermont in the past few years.
After a 1 1/2 hour flight, we landed on a little runway on Tangier Island. It almost looks like the Caribbean, right?
Pretty little houses dotted the coastline…
And the beach! Oh, my, was it pretty! And the water was so nice and warm. Unfortunately, we didn’t have our swimming suits along. But that didn’t stop us from going swimming anyway! (Thank goodness there are no photos to document THAT! It was a private beach – enough said!)
We did get stung by jellyfish, but the hilarious moments we had made up for the pain!
We ate some amazing seafood – crab bisque, crab cakes, shrimp po boys, yum, yum, yum.
What a fun time of exploring and adventure! We didn’t have our kids along (which is pretty rare), so we acted like we were kids again!
