Virginia and North Carolina… Great weather, and great beaches!

After traveling to the nations capitol, we headed south to Virginia.  It was a first to see a cotton field, I can honestly say I’ve never seen one before, but learned (from mom’s research) that a lot of states grow cotton, with Texas being the #1 US grower.

While in Virginia mom and dad took a trip to Colonial Williamsburg.  The township runs as if it was in the 1800’s with everything built within the city as it was done in OLDEN times!  🙂

Our next stop was Virginia Beach which was nice and warm for the most part, but there were a TON of stickers on the ground that kept getting stuck on my feet.  Luckily mom was there to pull them out, and I gave her a kiss each time she did.  She was a savior (bless her soul).

Heading south we made it to Durham NC to visit a friend of dad’s.  I loved where we stayed as there was a ton of hiking…and we all know how much I love to hike (and chase squirrels).

In Durham… taps outside – no beer coming from them, but they were still cool.

Sleeping at Paul’s while everyone watched the Seahawks beat the Giants.

From Durham we traveled even further south to Carolina Beach – near Wilmington.  We were once again blessed with great weather and enjoyed more hiking and even a day on the beach.

We’ve had a wonderful trip so far and been very lucky with the weather.  We are still headed south as the sun keeps calling our names.  I hear it’s almost freezing up there in Seattle these days… bring on more sunshine!
