Night at Virginia Beach

Photobucket
This is what its looks like in Virginia Beach at night, so beautiful, so clean, and so peaceful. Its the opposite from what Ive imagine. The crowd is not that bad, it feel safe walking along the boardwalk and along the beach. There’s not much cop around, I only saw one walking around, checking the beach, maybe because there’s not much trouble in this place. You will know if there is because the place would be heavily guarded. I feel so care free when we strolled around. I heard a live band on the next street from our hotel, people laughing and having a party. We didnt went that far, we just stayed in front of our hotel, enjoying the view of the ocean and feeling the sand on our feet. It was wonderful! I never felt so happy, relax and full of excitement at the same time. 😉 pretty cool huh?

Well.. here are some photos I took that night.

The beautiful Beach of Virginia

Its the first beach that Ive been to since I arrive here in US 4years ago. I was so happy and excited that hubby agreed to spend our Anniversary in Virginia Beach. Its 6 to 7 hours drive from home, pretty far but it was worth going. Its a very pretty beach, very clean, not so crowded, people are so friendly, safe, secured, and the best part is you can view the beach from your hotel. Its really pretty amazing at night and in the morning. You can see the moon so bright shining and reflecting on the water, and the Sunrise is so spectacular that you cant stop your camera from capturing every moment as it rises up from the water. pretty amazing. I sure thank God for this beauty. =)

Baltimore National Aquarium

Last Friday, we went to the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland, thinking that we’ll beat the crowd before weekend, but to our dismay, it was super crowded. To top that, the weather changed to cloudy, and dark clouds starting to appear above us. 🙁 And since we were already there.. we just make most of our time.
The picture below is the Aquarium building. Cool structure huh?

From outside, I find it so small, wondering how those those poor big fishes fit in their aquarium. But once inside its quite big, but not big enough for the crowd that day. It was terrible! We were not able to see all the fishes, we missed half of the 4th level where the Octopus was, and missed the showing of the Dora and Diego 4D show. 🙁 So, if you are planning to go to this place, better go on weekdays which is not so crowded, but since its summer, it might still be crowded, but not as crowded on the weekends. And, also check the weather, if its gonna rain or not, so you will enjoy strolling on the deck in the pier. 🙂 As for the tickets… I find it very expensive! lol. For the Aquarium only, it cost $24.95 for adults, and 19.95 for child 3-11. And its like $5 more if you want to watch the 4D show or the Dolphin Show. That day, there was no Dolphin show, I dont know why, I didnt asked, maybe because of the weather.
ANyhow.. Below are some of the photos that I took inside the Aquarium. They really got a lot of cool fishes. Our favorite was the green eel that was swimming slowly on the rocks, fitting in the tiny cracks. It was really the coolest!
For larger viewing of the photos just double click it. Enjoy! 🙂
