The Tumbleweeds and the Beach

More than a week has passed since I've blogged, and the tumbling-tumbleweeds blowing around my blog show the neglect, and dust-bunnies blowing through the house show neglect there as well.

The past week was a full one that began with my trip to my nephew's wedding. With a few hours before the wedding, I did manage to squeeze in a sunrise walk on Virginia Beach.
Mornings on the beach are much different than during the day when the crowds are there.
It's peaceful and serene with only the sound of the birds as they fly past and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.  I'll admit that I'm not one to go barefoot, but who doesn't love that feeling of the grainy sand against your feet as you walk across the beach?
Sunrise on the beach is a special time and I've a feeling that the lady below agrees with that.
I think that when given the chance everyone should experience it at least once. 
All too soon, and before I realized it, the crowds of people began to arrive, and it was time to leave and get ready for the wedding.  

In my next post I'll tell you about the wedding that took place in "Isle of Wight County" at the historic St Luke's Church, which is the oldest church of English origin in America.
THANKS for stopping by, I've missed visiting with you!  ...And you didn't think I'd not post at least one photo of a dog (Josh) ....
Or of Todd, did you?  


  1. I felt as if I WAS at the shore, thanks for taking me there, glad that you posted some dogs as well.phyllis

  2. Hello Kim, I love going to the beach. Especially to be there watching the sunrise, lovely captures! The church looks beautiful. And of course Josh and Todd are adorable. Gorgeous images. Happy Sunday, have a great new week ahead!

  3. Looks like a beautiful beach. Welcome back and hope you had a nice time away.

  4. Who doesn't like walking barefoot on the beach?

    Someone who just stepped on a now angry crab. Well, you asked.

  5. I agree, everyone should watch the sunrise at the beach, it's just too awesome. Also walking barefoot in the sand, nothing like it!
    Cool old church!
    Josh and Todd - looking good! (As usual)

  6. Looks like there's a lot of folk keen to see the sunrise and get the grit between their toes.

  7. Beaches are always best viewed alone or with family and friends only. Sunrises and sunsets are nice they are usually the coolest of the day.
    Thanks for taking us with you, Kim. It looked lovely. ♥

  8. I enjoyed going to the shore with you as I burn too easily to enjoy it in person. Miss it though, very much!

  9. A quiet walk along the beach in the morning or evening is fantastic. The only way SHE enjoys the beach anyway. Hope your batteries have been charged sufficiently.

  10. Hope this visit to your nephew's wedding has given you a good break and recharged your batteries...I'm sure the crew have been looking after things.

  11. Glad you got some quiet time on the beach. Lovely old church.

  12. It was good to see your post and my buddy Todd.

    Aroo to you,

  13. Your ocean is so beautiful Kim! Wonderful photos. We felt like we were there too! And yes,, we would be barefoot with sand between our toes, and the cold ocean water!

  14. We've been neglectful if our blog too. (Ongoing computer issues). But I always look forward to your posts!

  15. To beat the crowds of people and enjoy a few quiet moments looking out at the sea . . . like you said, who wouldn't enjoy!
    Walking a beach is good exercise . . .
    (Happy you included the two doggie pics too!)

  16. oh i just loved this post! my kind of place... in the perfect time of day.
    anxiously await the beautiful wedding photos!
    and yes!
    todd and josh. a handsome duo if there ever was one! xoxo♥

  17. I haven't been to a beach in a long time. Thanks for taking me with you. That church is very interesting. I hope you have pictures of the interior too.
