A trip to the ocean!

 Friday I had the delightful opportunity to head to the Jersey Shore with a group of younger people from the church we've been attending since moving here. It was great  to be able to make new friends and get to know some newer friends even better. We enjoyed a fantastic time swimming in the afternoon, and in the evening we walked the boardwalk, and then went to a lovely service at the boardwalk chapel that is part of the denomination of the church group I was with.

The beach at Wildwood is absolutely massive. This is the view from the boardwalk.

For a gorgeous day in August, the beach actually wasn't that crowded, and the water even less.

Fireworks on the boardwalk!

Sun and Sand

Yesterday after a lovely day of worship and fellowship and lunch with new friends, Dad, Seth and I  took advantage of a rare sunny day to go swimming! We went to Elk Neck river which is part of the Chesapeake Bay, and had a thoroughly good time! Dad fished a bit, Seth and I swam, enjoyed the sand, and collected scallop shells.

I decided the easiest way to share past pictures would be to upload them to picasa,  so here is that album.
Moving Across the country

I'll try to put actual pictures on posts from now on though! I've added just a few of my favorites to this post, and I hope to have another post up tomorrow.
Virginia was insanely beautiful!

If you have to have a flat tire, Virginia is the place to be stranded! :)

Seeing the Shenandoah Valley was probably one my very favorite parts of our trip!
