Even after almost six years living in Virginia Beach, I still haven't seen all that this area has to offer. Just this week I walked the dogs on the beach at First Landing State Park for the first time. Its a pretty, sandy beach at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, only a few miles from my house. I just never bothered to see this part of the park because there is a beach at the end of my street.
Pelicans, seagulls, and cormorants resting on some old pier supports, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel can be seen in the background.
Interesting tide pool draining towards the ocean.
An Atlantic Whelk shell to add to my collection, usually I only find these after a large storm.
