These were just a few fun shots we took on our last day in Virginia. We woke early to catch the sunrise over Buckroe Beach. I used to run to this beach from my childhood home in Hampton. I love the sound of the waves rolling in and the smell of the beach. I love the birds and the shells and the way the sky meets the water. It was such a neat thing to be able to stay at this particular beach and have my children experience nature in a way that I did as a kid. It was cold but none of us minded. They danced at the water's edge and sang little ditties as a new day dawned before our eyes.
