Virginia Beach Boardwalk Christmas Lights going up

The waves were crashing big time today when Marie-Louise and I walked Molly on the Boardwalk.  A storm is coming and the wind was out of the NorthEast.  The Pier was closed except for a couple of gift shops and the time share "Vacation Info" booth. 

The city and oceanfront hotel employees were bustling around setting up the lights for the Christmas Lightshow on the Boardwalk.  This starts before Thanksgiving and lasts until after New Year's Eve.   Promptly at 5:00 PM every night, the Boardwalk is cleared of pedestrians and bicyclists and carloads of people slowly drive along the Boardwalk from 1st to 36th  Streets taking in the wonderful Christmas Light Displays.  One pays $10 ($5 before Thanksgiving), gets a CD with Christmas Music on it, and drives the Boardwalk listening to the music and watching the animated Christmas Light show choreographed to the CD.  It's all quite fun and the proceeds go to charity.
