Away a Few Days

  Sorry.  

  I've been gone a few days and am trying to catch up.  Mrs. Penwasser and I went to Virginia Beach for a long weekend (which proved to be a lonnnnnngggggg weekend for our relatives).    
  
  So, give me a couple days and I'll be all caught up.

While we didn't actually stay AT the Resort Area, we could see it.
I think.
Hey, the parking was cheap, anyway.
Like our president, I took in a little golf, too.
No wonder the greens fees were so cheap.

    1. I did, thanks. I didn't get the Chips Ahoy Blizzard which I wanted. But, I had beer. So, on balance...

    1. We were wayyyyyyyy up the beach (as the picture suggests). The good news is that is was pretty free of people. The bad news is that there were no porta-potties. Well, except the ocean.

    1. It really is nice. The good part is that we have a fair amount of family who love there (including our son). So, we see the place quite a bit.

  5. Next time you have to come to Florida where the beaches are white, the golf is cheap and parking is free!!

    1. That was alleged to be a green. The course was hideous.

    1. The picture doesn't do it justice.
      It was much, much worse.

  14. I've seen greener greens in a cornfield. Are you people having a drought? Consider emigrating to a rain forest.

  15. At least you had beer, the rest is just filler.

  16. Did you get a hole in one, Al? It sounds scandalous, so I had to ask.

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL, sorry, Al.
    They pump it for you? Do they charge? Can they get one in hole? What's the address?

    Love ya, silly.

    1. Signs, signs, every where's there's signs.
      And many times I see humor in them.

  18. My dad used to be a keen golfer and, as a child, I sometimes carried his clubs. As such, I've seen many greens in my time, but never one like that! In fact green is a misnomer!

  19. It was so funny when you left your comment at my place, as we were in Virginia also. Williamsberg. It was also good, but Looooong for the one who was driving. (That would be me.)
