OCEAN water




I live in Virginia, and frankly it doesn’t get cold until, like, November. So, it’s currently in the 90s. Which is fine, except for the part where I’m ready for visiting the beach in cooler weather. Imagine- nicer temperatures and sweaters. And hot coffee. And good food.

I’m ready for fall like the rest of the human race.

ANYWAY. I don’t have a super romantic story a la the past 3 posts about these pictures. This is more of me just being wistful and wishing the weather WOULD COOL THE HELL DOWN A COUPLE OF NOCHES LIKE SHIT. Warm beaches are nice, but visiting beaches in the fall when things have cooled down just seems nice. You get bonfires, and sweaters, and hot beverages…. like doesn’t that sound nice?! It does to me!

P.S. I took these pictures at Virginia Beach while visiting a friend. Coincidentally there was a Noreaster storm going through. My friend and I were set to drive down to a condo, and we realized there was going to be the winter equivalent of a tropical storm. We considered, for a bold 5 minutes, delaying our trip. Then we realized, “nah,” AND GOT IN THE CAR ANYWAYS CAUSE THAT’S WHAT WINNERS DO. So! We had a total blast. The beach and the bars were pretty empty due to the weather, but that’s ok! We got to hang out with some really down to earth bartenders along the boardwalk. We ended up talking about old fashions and whiskey vs scotch. And for some reason my bar talk ended up about French in the second World War. Dunno how that happened but at the time it seemed like a great idea.

Bottom line. Fall/winter beaches? Pretty legit.
