Flag Day and MJF

Took a short trip to Virginia Beach for the Boardwalk Show and Michaels 67th birthday!

When we're dead everyone will think Michael was single since we have many photos of him but very few of me!

The show was pretty good, some EXCELLENT work.

We stayed at the Fairfield, which was ok, could not beat the location.

The thing that struck us the most about the location was the wind!! Could not imagine doing the show for 4 days with 15-25 mile an hour winds.

We saw some of our friends, ate some good food at Tautag's and Burton's (where the Happy Birthday desert came from) and generally had a good time.

Below is the Life Saving Station, one, probably the only, old building left along the waterfront. It is a nice little museum. We saw a photo of the beach when this was the only thing on it. Will have to say they have done a good job with the board walk and the adjacent paved bike trail beside it. The shops are typical beach though, not my taste.

As we left Virginia Beach we visited The Military Aviation Museum - it was outstanding! When we read about it we didn't know what to expect. It was well worth the visit.

Many planes, probably 50, from WW1 & WWII, all perfectly restored and with very few exceptions they all fly! Here is a link to their website.

Back home tonight and ready for work tomorrow at Carolina Creations.
