Cape Charles

This past weekend was GORGEOUS. The kind of gorgeous day that just draws you outside even if you have a gagillion things to do inside. Saturday Trey's tee-ball game was canceled so we decided to drive over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and see part of the Eastern Shore of VA. Incidentally, the bridge is considered one of the 7 Engineering Marvels of the world... did you know that? I didn't...

The Eastern Shore is a, roughly, 70 mile long peninsula that juts into the Chesapeake Bay and connects to southern Maryland at the top. It took us around an hour to get there from our house in Hampton. We stopped at the first little city on the shore, Cape Charles. Eventually we want to make our way up the peninsula to Chincoteague and Tangier Island, but those trips will probably have to be a bit less spontaneous. :)

Anyway, it's not prime tourist season yet so the little town was quiet, sleepy almost. It's one of those places you can see yourself living when your 80... your grandkids and great-grandkids coming to visit... and throwing their stuff down in the living room, yelling "HEY GRAN!" then running down to the beach. And you wouldn't worry. Because this town has that kind of feel...

After lunch at a cute little artsy cafe, we walked across the street to some old train graveyard place? I'm not really sure what it was, but it was a photographer's flippin' DREAM!

We walked around the town a bit more and ended up down on the beach... ahh the beach. My family just loves the beach...

DJ managed to wrangle the camera from me so I appear in a few shots. Ack. I DESPISE being in front of the camera...

But I remedied that right quick... LOL...

And then Trey got gutsy and started sticking his head in the water... he's a crazy kid.

All in all, it was a great little trip!

Any photography clients want to drive over an hour to your location?! Because this would be PERFECT!!! :)

Oh and I've still got some business stuff to post! Stay tuned :)
