At the Beach with the Family

It was one of those rare instances where nearly everyone in the family had Saturday off (Charles unfortunately had to work). I had originally planned to stay home and game all day but changes my plans because hey, who knows when we'll all be fortunate enough to have the same day off work.

Instead of going to the main Virginia Beach, we went to a beach that was about 15 minutes away from the house. It was my first time being to this particular beach and the first time I'd been to a beach that had way more than a handful of people. Kids and adults were having fun in the water, people were fishing, riding jet skis, ya you know, all the good fun activities you can do when you're that close to the ocean.

As always, the beach, no matter which one it is always impresses me. The view was phenomenal, the ocean crashing against the shore, the sound of the waves, the smell of the water, I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.

I watched my nieces and nephew play around in the water. Despite being only a year old, Samuel shows no fear of those crashing waves. He didn't even cry when some water got on his face. Nakiah loved to tube around in the water. I think she stepped further into the water more than any of us.

I actually did get my feet wet but I only wet so far. That whole not-being-able-to-swim thing could get messy. Still it was great to stand in the water if only a small part of me was in it. The water hitting my feet as I listened to music on my MP3 player and stared out at the ocean, man, that was awesome. I'm still cleaning sad out of my shoes and my bag. We'll probably be vacuuming the stuff up for some time but we had so much fun today. It was one of the best Saturdays I've had in a very long time. Definitely gonna have to do that again.
