What a weekend!
We had a pretty nice weekend down here in Va Beach.
My folks came down for the weekend and we hit the Strawberry Festival. It's in an area of Virginia Beach called Pungo. I've lived here on and off since '91 and this is the first time I've ever been there.
My family doesn't come down this way very often...Pop with his new heart and mom sporting her "hemi's", it's not that easy for them. But they both really impressed me. We walked all over the place and considering what they've been through medically in the last couple of years it was really great to see them motoring around like nobody's business.
Here comes the good part though...on Sunday I took my father, brother and cousin out on my boat for a "three hour tour". We went fishing around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and over to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. All in all about 30 or 40 miles.
I did forget one small thing though.
I hadn't fueled up in a while and apparently, I went a little farther than I should have. Yeah, running out of gas 10 miles from the nearest pump is an ugly thing, doing it with a boatload of my family members will guarantee a lifetime of grief!
