Virginia Beach Random-osity

The Good: It's Independence Day and it's good to see the Stars and Stripes flying in the sun! 
First Landing State Park

The Random: We went to Virginia Beach this weekend and met up with two of Frank's daughters and their families. We made a brief visit to First Landing State Park. We saw this figure of Blackbeard on display in the Trail Center. I don't know if he's gathering treasure or he is a treasure! He may have been a plundering outlaw, but he is still celebrated on the Atlantic Coast.

The Fun: Although I'm not a big fan of the beach, it was fun spending time with Frank's family. Here he is with grandson Austin. 


  1. Better than 'the good, the bad and the ugly.' The boat looks inviting.

  2. Hello, a vacation with the family sounds nice. Love the photos. Have a great day and week ahead!

  3. ...I never can understand the fascination with pirates! Hopping that you had a wonderful 4th!

  4. I like the Blackbeard shot, he looks pretty tough
