July, 2011, took our camper to Virginia Beach, Va. for Dan's Navy Seal Reunion

While listing our trips in the previous posts, I completely forgot our almost two week trip to Virginia Beach.  It was the 50th anniversary of Seal Team Two, and so the festivities lasted from Thursday evening through Sunday.  Fun time, saw amazing demonstrations of our capabilities, met lots of people from Dan's history, ate some great food, drank a few beers, heard some good stories.  We had some great seafood in restaurants while in that part of the country.  We stayed on the base at Little Creek at the campground, and rode our bikes everywhere, even to events where I wore a skirt!  On the way there and on the way back, we mostly stayed off the Interstates.  One memorable night, though, we stopped for the night at a truck stop in Breezewood, Pa - big mistake.  Lots of air brake noises and backing up beeps, all night long!  On the way back, we stayed one night in a dark corner of a Walmart, along with another 2 campers/motor homes.  Enjoyed the beautiful country, stopped in little towns. 
Here are a few pictures:
