When we lived in VA, our last address was right on the Chesapeake Bay.
I could watch Pan’s submarine come in and out of the bay as I sat on the deck of the beach house. It was wonderful place to live.
The history in that area is wonderful... lots of things to see.
We don’t miss it, though. It was time to move on.
I too lived in Virginia Beach right near Fort Story and on the beach.
You are right about all the history. I visited a lot of places but never even came close to seeing everything.
