My Vacation

Saturday, June 11, 2011

My vacation was fabulous and relaxing,
I had plenty of time by the pool and some sunshine!
We rented a beach house for a week and Virginia Beach
was everything that I hoped. It was great to take walks
in the morning by the ocean. I visited the Strawberry Festival,
 the Aquarium, Cape Henry Lighthouse and the Nauticus.
I also had the opportunity to see the boardwalk and had some
 great and fresh seafood! I love vacations, too bad they
don't last forever. Here are the pictures that my sister Carine took:

The pool was very relaxing.
