Virginia Beach in the Off Season
Way back in March, Zach was invited by Endless Vacation magazine to write a feature about Virginia Beach in the Autumn.
So in the earliest days of spring, we hopped in a car and went to sample all that Virginia Beach had to offer. It was a jam-packed/meal-packed weekend as we ran from one activity -- kayaking! indoor skydiving! climbing through treetops in an adventure park! -- to another.
Virginia Beach rolled out the red carpet, but we had one experience that's really stayed with us: a visit to Pleasure House Oysters.
Here's the scene:
It's mid-afternoon on a Sunday, and the sun is starting to lower in the sky. It's one of those early days of spring -- sunny but still cold -- that indicates longer, warmer days are coming. We meet the owner of Pleasure House, Chris, on a dock. He outfits us with waders (very flattering, as you can see from the photo above), then we all climb on the boat and head out to Chris' farm.
