Neptune Tea

our traveling tea cup is on the road again…

this time it’s a little trip to Virginia Beach which is about a three hour drive for us…

our first evening here I found the perfect spot for the tea cup…

this 34 foot (10.36 meter) tall statue of King Neptune by our hotel is a marvel weighing in at 12.5 tons…

we seem to be drawn to it again

and again

like so many others

it has been a bit damp and chilly here…

no complaints tho as there is always fun to be had…

getting to sit down and have dinner with a dear blog friend Jan from Colorado certainly was a treat…

meeting face to face for the first time was like getting together with an old friend as we talked the night away…

so nice to get to say hello to sweet Terri too!

here’s hoping your T on Tuesday is full of fun

  7. Your tea cup travels to the BEST places. It’s great when you can be on the go and have as much fun as you have. I guess it says something about and for empty-nesters! I really enjoyed this trip and seeing a place I will probably never visit. Now I must get my tea post prepared and wish you a happy Tea today.
