we just returned from a brief, overwhelming, and incredible trip down the east coast to virginia beach. it was five days full of intense sun, family, people watching, micro-brew drinking, wave playing, beach lounging, boardwalk walking, slot playing, and overeating. there was a little sunburn in there too. lots of pictures were taken. perhaps i'll share some more here when i get acclimatized back to home. for now, i'll leave you with this picture snapped from our hotel balcony in virginia beach.
