I tagged along on my sweetie’s holiday trip to visit his kids in Virginia Beach, Va., and his father in North Carolina. It was, all in all, a good week, but tiring. We stayed at guest quarters at Oceana Naval Air Station, which as clean and comfortable, and equipped with a fridge and wifi. Yay! We did a lot of running around with the kids, and since we were borrowing his daughter’s car for the weekend, we spent a fair bit of time getting it rehabbed — inspections, new tires, oil and fluids, replacement keys, wipers and such. It needed to happen.
On Christmas Eve, we drove down to North Carolina to visit my sweetie’s father, whom I had never met, even though my sweetie and I have been together for 10 years. We also spent Christmas Day there. My sweetie’s dad and his wife don’t celebrate Christmas, and she has severe allergies, so it as a little odd… but it was an interesting experience, and I think it went well.
On the last day of my visit, my sweetie took me to the beach at Dam Neck Naval Air Station. The morning was foggy, the temperature was rising, and the beach was deserted. It was FABULOUS!
And, finally, a rare photo of my sweetie:
