Sunday was a beautiful day here on the east coast of Virginia...hubby was dying to take the boat out to our "hidden" island (really just a huge sand bar that changes every year)

Enjoy some pics...

The 2 mile bridge basscrazy was leary to cross, but did, thank goodness!

Scenes like this remind me of why I love where I live...

Don't ask me if I feel this way when it gets cold or there's snow...

This is our little paradise all summer long...TS Ernesto took out about 30' of sand that connected the two "islands"...now it's just a 4 foot walkway that is completely covered at high tide...

Still beautiful, but where I'm taking the pic from is destined to be washed away with one or two good storms...

There's a small airport a few miles away; tons of smaller planes always flying overhead...

And the clouds were amazing...

Way off in the distance is the town where I live...looks to be a long way off, but it only takes us about 20 minutes to get from the dock to the island in calm waters...

Curious to see what will be there next summer...

THEY ARE! LOL

They think they are...they're so funny when you ask 'em to "show us your muscles"

(BiG-T @ Sep. 19 2006,14:47) The pic in post #10 is very nice!
It's a beautiful area to live in; we're surrounded by rivers and the Bay on 3 sides...

...hubby goes out in the boat way more than I do, but I'm so glad I went on Sunday...I did nothing but sit in a chair and watch the kids and clouds...

I'm going to really miss summer
