We are being hit by a Nor'Easter that is generating gusts up to 60 mph with sustained winds over 30 mph! The waves are really kicking up and putting on a show of Mother Nature's immense power. Everything is supposed to clear out by the weekend and become pleasant again, but until then, all but the adventurous, will be spending most of their time indoors.
However, notwithstanding the wind and driving rain, our guests were out and about the area visiting: 1) the Virginia Beach Library for some genealogical research; 2) the Military Aviation Museum to view the many WWII aircraft and learn from of the actual pilots about the craft; 3) the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Museum to observe the various denizens of the deep and take in an IMAX 3-D show; 4) several shopping malls and upscale shops; and 5) continuing a multi-day business trip calling on local clients.
If the weather continues to blow tomorrow as expected, there are still many indoor things left to enjoy including: the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum and Coast Guard Lifesaving Museum which are each only a few blocks away on the Boardwalk; the Virginia Contemporary Art Center on 22nd Street; the Cape Henry Lighthouse; and many more museums and attractions in Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Newport News only short drives away.
That's one thing more about Virginia Beach that we love - there's always something to do no matter what the weather!
