Hiking the Back Bays of Virginia on Minimal Sleep

Julie and I have done very little today.  We are both worn out from our busy day yesterday in combination of the clocks springing forward last night.  Even so, I must say that our day yesterday was totally worth it.

I don’t really know how she does it, but Julie always finds the oddest, coolest things to do.  Yesterday, she organized a trip for us and her photography group to head to a state park in Virginia Beach.  Unfortunately, this trip involved us getting up at 4:45am to get there.  Groggily, we made our way to the park where we then hopped aboard a mean machine called a TerraGator.  This beast of a vehicle drove us over the dunes and down the beach to a remote area that was within walking distance to both the beach and the back bay.  We decided to hike to the back bay.  Once we got there, the tide was out so we decided to hike on the back bay.

It was muddy, but Julie was able to get some pretty good shots.


At the end of the day, we were exhausted and a little disheartened when we remembered we were losing an hour of sleep tonight.  Still, we had an awesome time and as tired as we are now, I don’t think we’d change anything about it.
