Here are some things I love about Norfolk:
—Celebrating Megan’s birthday at the Oceanview Pier with $1 beers
—The city symbol is a mermaid
—The historical significance of this bay, and the ships that once sailed where the barges and Coast Guard ships sailed tonight
—From my house I can hear the neighbor’s wind chimes, church bells every three hours during the day, trains constantly, ships blowing their fog horns at night, P-3s flying overhead, kids playing
—the museums, the breweries, the interesting shops
—cherry blossoms in the rain and a sunset at the beach two days apart
—how often you see familiar faces around town
—Isaac has this goofy history comic book Chris bought him in Williamsburg about Chester the Crab. He loves it…and we’ve learned a ton about the Chesapeake region, geographically and historically. Ha ha!
—frequently crossing paths with the trains, Port of Norfolk, and barges shipping stuff across the world
—changing seasons, except as they pertain to allergies and extra yard work for me…
—living here with my kids, waiting for our sailor to come home!
