Greetings From Virginia Beach

We made it to Virginia Beach after a 10 hour car drive yesterday. The drive was fairly unexciting, aside from a 30 mile stretch of road between Huntington and Charleston, WV that I have now christened as “Road Kill Alley”. The deer in that area are either not too bright or just have really bad luck. Along that stretch of road, I counted well over 35 dead deer, along with various smaller creatures. That’s greater than one dead animal a mile, folks. I’ve never heard of an area where the deer population control weapon of choice is a vehicle. Now, I’m not a gun advocate, but come on, people of West Virginia – it’s at least more humane.

Our room is pretty nice. We have a fridge and a microwave, and high-speed internet access, which of course was a must. The breakfast here is amazing – every type of breakfast food you could think of is available.

The one unpleasant aspect is the surprise we had waiting in our bathroom. I saw something hanging on a hook, and couldn’t figure out what it was. Was it a towel? A shower cap? Aaron took a closer look to tell me. Turns out, it’s a pair of underwear. Someone else’s underwear. Yuck.

Not sure what I’m going to do today. I will probably look in the guide book and find something to explore in the area. The weather is great, and thanks to the Hippo Diet, I can just barely fit into my capris, so life is good!

    As a total aside…My peanut is sitting on my lap as I type, and she can see Cordy in the right hand corner, and she’s yelling “BAAAAA BAEEEEEE!” and trying to grab her.

  9. Ick, double Ick, triple ICK!

    But, oooh, breakfast foods. Does that make up for the undies in the bathroom?
