Sigh. No, we didn’t head to the Outer Banks for the weekend, but we still got to see water and something that passes for a beach. See, my cousin has a new home in Colonial Beach, and that’s where we did Easter dinner.
Now, Colonial Beach isn’t new to me, but I confess that I’ve never had time to be a tourist there before yesterday. Yesterday’s little drive made me very curious! Alexander Graham Bell maintained a vacation home there and the Bell House is now a bed & breakfast. The house has quite a history, having been built by the son of the Civil War General Ambrose.
The town of Colonial Beach even has a little fire boat after the big marina fire. It is the first fire boat I’ve seen in person. Yeah, that is the wee police boat to its left, and there was a State Police boat elsewhere in the marina too. I suspect before long, those boats will be in the water!
Did you do anything special for Easter?
Oh – and be sure to visit the girls’ blog for a fun Easter photo.
