Virginia Beach - Last of the Vacation Posts
Since we were "in the neighborhood", my daughter and I set upon lobbying to go to Virginia Beach to see the ocean. Due to the 40 degree temps and additional driving, my husband adamantly said NO. But after dropping the boyfriend back at base and saying goodbyes for the next seven weeks, my daughter was feeling pretty blue. Looking at her sad little face, my husband immediately acquiesced and we were off on our hour long drive to Virginia Beach. Of course, it was also in the low 40s there, not to mention cloudy and VERY windy .... resulting in a windchill in the 20s, well maybe 30s! Bottom line .... it was COLD! The few other people on the beach had on winter coats and hats! Well we parked and walked down to the waters edge in our flip flops, walked ankle deep into the water (NOT my hubbie) and quickly retreated back to the car. Took half the trip back to the hotel before I could feel my toes again!! My husband and daughter did wait for me, albeit impatiently, to get a few shots of the beach .... very hurried and of out focus shots. Even though they aren't top quality images, I decided to share anyway since I have taken you all on my virtual vacation through my other posts! We spent a total of 2 hours driving there and back .... for 9 minutes tops on the beach! Oh what we do for our children hahaha. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this last installment of my vacation. Thanks for viewing!
In the UNDERWATER tunnel .... freaked me out a bit!

I just came across them today. I don't know if they can fly, I'll check tomorrow.

Nikon AF Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5D Lens
I just ordered this lens from KEH, they rated it's condition as excellent. I figured that for $119 I couldn't go wrong.
Today's backgrounds are a collaboration ...

Cook's Bank Rhyolite, Nevada
In 1906, the sprawling burg of Rhyolite, Nevada was home to 10,000 residents. The Cook's Bank Building cost $90,000 in 1906 to build. By 1910, mines were played out, the market had collapsed and only 600 people remained in the town. Bits of the interior were sold off the same year, and the structure started collapsing.
