Virgina Beach in the Winter

Our trip to Virginia Beach Virginia. We stayed in a timeshare/hotel room overlooking the beach on the Atlantic ocean. The weather wasn't the best, but it was nice to get away for a week. When the weather cooperated we ventured away from our room and visited the Virginia Aquarium and the Water Fowl Museum and I wandered the beach. It was quite interesting visiting the Old Cape Henry Light House which is on a Navy Base. We had to go through a security check, and they explained what we could and could not take pictures of. Walking the steps to the top of the mound were tiring but the climb to the top of the lighthouse was worth the steps. What a great view of the bay, the ocean and the new Cape Henry lighthouse. We also stopped at the Chesapeake Bay-Bridge Tunnel rest area again, and this time the restaurant was open for business. Very nice eatery and wonderful views. The fishing pier was cold but worth the chill. Over all it was a great trip and certainly has me wanting to go back again.
