9/14-16 SALUTE! OOPAH! ZOOM! CLINK! BOTTOMS UP!

Now that summer is over, what is there to do in Virginia Beach?
Let's take a look at the Weekend of Sept 14-16 for some ideas:

Mediterranean Weekend comes to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront September 14 - 16 2012 at the 17th Street and 24th Street Parks on the Boardwalk. Singing, dancing, food and drink - a celebration of the best of Italy and Greece.

Naval Air Station Oceana Air Show also September 14-16. Special Twilight show kicks off the weekend at 5:30 on Friday night with most of the activities taking place during the day Saturday and Sunday and a Saturday night Super Hornet afterburner flyby at 31st St Park where parachutists will arrive with burning torches and the Blue Angels pilots and support team will be introduced on the stage and mingle with guests.
Here's the Black Diamond Civilian Aerobatic Team which flys L-39s and MIG-17s, in their formations.  



2012 North American Sea Glass Festival will be held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center over the same weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Many amateur and commercial members of the North American Sea Glass Association (who knew?) will be exhibiting beautiful and unusual examples of sea glass both genuine and artificial, loose and crafted into amazing  jewelry and products.

16th Annual Neptune Fall Wine Festival featuring over 15 Virginia wineries will be open for tastings from Noon to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday at the 31st Street Park 

DON'T FORGET that this weekend September 8-9 is BLUES AT THE BEACH and NEPTUNE BOARDWALK FESTIVAL is September 28-30

Come stay at Barclay Cottage Bed and Breakfast!

Marie-Louise's "Annual Review"

As we got closer to August 16  (our anniversary)  I kidded 
Marie-Louise that her "Annual Review" was approaching.  Whenever guests complimented her cooking or gardening I was sure to point out that I would note her "record"  as her "Annual Review" was fast approaching.

Well, I must have seemed a stern taskmaster, as some wonderful guests wanted to be sure that I treated Marie-Louise fairly during her "Employment Evaluation", and left this review behind when they checked out!
