Hipstamonday at Fort Monroe

Curtis came down to visit this weekend and we spent time appreciating the simple things in life...
Sleeping in even after the fire alarm went off at 7 flippin' am.
Giftcards that were lost on the desk that lead to a free meal.
A fat cat who likes to snuggle.
Fresh breezes in the bedroom window.
Sunday crossworld puzzles.
And, most importantly, pretty sand and scenery at the beach.

We went for a walk down on Fort Monroe.  On 1 October it ceased to be an active military installation and now it's part of Hampton as a park.  It's going to be a great place for walks and runs now that it's not so painful to go through the gate without a DoD car sticker.  Here are some huge seagulls...and a purple sky!  Love my phone.  :)

As we walked, I shook the camera just to see what would come up--the lenses and films change randomly--and took shots.  This is some ridged sand:

And how about this one?  The seagulls were huge!  Most of them ran off while I was walking down there, but the crazy lens on this one took such a cool shot!

Here's a bit of wall where the water will be at high tide.

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing it with us. That place is beautiful!

  2. What amazing pictures, Jen! Wow...Ft. Monroe will no longer be a military installation? I have memories there too back when we lived in Chesapeake...


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
