Memorial Day Weekend, 2009
Got up at 5:15 this morning to pack the car, get ice and cooler drinks and head to Stacey's to pick up her and Merle. We hit the road around 6:45 and we were parking at First Landing State Park at noon. This after taking the scenic route through Petersburg instead of going through Colonial Heights as planned. Need to get that GPS soon!
After 3.5 hours at the beach, we headed to our room at the Red Roof Inn, a dog friendly establishment. We are in the dog wing at the back of the hotel and have so far seen another schnauzer, a cocker spaniel, and several other breeds. We have heard some barking from adjacent rooms, but not loud enough to disturb. The main thing that is bothersome is when Merle and Conner sound the alarm that someone is walking by on the side walk.
They were good enough to let us run out for a take out dinner from a restaurant we discovered last July when we came to the beach for 4th of July. The Dockside has a bar and restaurant, fishing boat charters, sightseeing tours, a fish cleaning and bait center and some souvenirs. We went on their Fireworks cruise last year and it was fabulous.
Going to bed earlier than 11:00 tonight!
