This Monday morning in Sandbridge is brisk and cool as a large weather front moved through last night and brought us about an inch of rain overnight and very heavy winds. Not great weather for going to the beach, nor for having a wedding.
Have you noticed? Families simply don’t spend time together the way they used to. According to psychologist Dr. Jim Taylor, writing in Psychology Today, busy lifestyles and 24/7 technology are driving us apart. “It’s gotten to the point,” he writes, “where it seems like parents and children are emailing and texting each other [even] more than they’re talking.”
There’s nothing better than when your beach vacation finally arrives. You’ve been waiting for sunny days laying on the beach. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the outcome of your beach vacation and it ends up raining. Don’t let a little rain ruin your trip to Sandbridge, embrace it! Sandbridge is located within Virginia Beach so there are plenty of things to do within a short drive. Here are our top 5 things to do when it rains in Sandbridge!
What a game last night huh? Not exactly the offensive show everyone was predicting prior to the game, but we have to be honest and say that the game was secondary to our enjoyment of the evening. We enjoyed the food and the commercials more than the game – just like we do every year.
Greetings from a chilly, but beautiful Sandbridge Beach on this Monday morning. Crisp is the best work we can think of this morning when thinking of how to describe the day. The frost on the ground this morning looked like a fine layer of snow fell overnight. It was really beautiful. It was tough to get up this morning and walk the dog however.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we are here to help you find some of the best places to get breakfast in and around the Sandbridge area.
If you’re a foodie like me, finding a good place for dessert is a necessity on any vacation. Whether you’re looking for a quick ice cream cone after a long hot day on the beach or just something to satisfy your sweet tooth while exploring around Virginia Beach, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of some of our favorite dessert places in and around Sandbridge Beach:
Greetings from a glorious Sandbridge Beach. I was just out on the beach earlier this morning with my dog enjoying a beautiful Christmas Eve sunrise.
It was truly an amazing sight as the sun was rising over an otherwise very calm Atlantic ocean, I looked to the west and saw the remnants of a full moon setting in the northwestern sky. Did you know that the full moon we had on the first day of winter was such a rare situation that none of us may live to see it again.
That is what we offer you today on Memory Monday. A simple photo that conveys all that is good with a beach vacation. Who would not enjoy sitting on your oceanfront deck, prop your feet up on the railing, and enjoy a warm beverage as you gaze out at the ocean? In fact, how about we do that today?!
We hope you are having a relaxing day wherever you may be. This is a busy and stressful week for a lot of people as it is effectively the last week of the business year as many companies are closed multiple days over the next two weeks. Lots of family travel is in store for folks as well.
If you still have holiday shopping to do this week, or if you have some deadlines to meet at work we pass this photo on to you as our gift from Sandbridge Blue to remind you that relaxing times can be yours.
Now is the time to start thinking about a vacation for summer 2019 and we still have good availability on our properties for next year. January starts our busy season in terms of bookings so why not take a look around our inventory today and get a head start on your own relaxing vacation? Our booking calendars are all open for next year right now, and we can set you and your family up today with your own relaxing vacation.
We are ready when you are with our reservations staff available 24 hours to help with any questions you may have.
In the meantime we wish you all the best from the beach!
Winds are blowing steadily at 25-30 miles per hour along the oceanfront this morning, and we had gusts yesterday upwards of 40 miles per hour. Add to that a good amount of rain, some sleet, and a few minutes of snow and that made for a very ugly day along the beach. We even had some of the flags in front of our office tattered by the strong weather. Very surprising for us.
We look for better weather ahead, but this morning we look back on Memory Monday to a great photo that reminds us that not all of our vacation rentals are occupied by families getting together. While we don’t normally rent to non-family groups….one could consider these ladies an extended family once you hear their story.
This photo is of a group of ladies that came and stayed with Blue in September. Ann L tells the story of this remarkable photo.
She says “we live in a small rural town on the Rhappahannock river. On our street great neighbors join together in times of need and times of fun. 9 ladies pictured here make an annual trip to the beach…and this is the official trip picture.” What a great looking group of friends!
We think that is inspiring, and great. Thank you Ann for sharing your photo of you and your friends with us. It seems to us that times like this are rare occasions these days and it is encouraging to see the enjoyment of just being together and sharing in a photo.
We look forward to serving you and your group again soon.
All the best from the beach!
