Strolling along the boardwalk, we passed several seafood restaurants. In the evening, there was a live performance under the red tent by the country western band Alabama. Great show, if you're into Country Music and it seems that thousands of people are, including John and I.
Our next adventure, something I had been waiting for, was a charter boat tour to see the sights along Virginia Beach and watch the dolphins. I only took one picture of them, but luckily that was enough to capture a group of five baby dolphins, as they momentarily rose from the water. To be honest, what I actually did was send them this telepathic message, "I'm only taking one picture so jump up ... and here we go." I guess they heard me. It really was very hard to capture them, as the boat started listing and bobbing, making it very difficult to hang on and grab a picture. The ride going out to sea was a bit choppy, but fun. I met some interesting people, especially 2 students from Germany who are here on holiday. We all had a lot of laughs. On the way back to the dock, the water got very choppy, the wind blowing, people holding onto the railings. It was all very humorous, but I have to admit at some point, my some stomach churned. The women running the tour said if anybody didn't feel well, they had meds, but I was really cool about the whole thing and in all, enjoyed the boat ride.
