Before moving to Virginia, we lived in a small town in Texas that was so hot half the year that it was nearly impossible to go out during daylight hours. When we could venture out, there wasn’t much in the way of trails, forests, or shady areas. All things that would’ve made it bearable.
That’s why I was so thrilled by the availability of outdoor activities here at the beach. The place that I love, and consider our second home is First Landing State Park. The park takes it’s name from the fact that it’s where the members of the Virginia Company first landed before ultimately settling at Jamestown. From biking along the trails to the cool educational offerings (crabbing, anyone?), we never get bored. My favorite thing to do there, however, is nothing at all. The water (Chesapeake Bay) is calmer than the Atlantic ocean and I can just relax on the shore with the dog while the kids wear themselves out.
