Norfolk - Waterside

Judy and I continue to enjoy our stay here at the pristine beach of Dam Neck just six miles south of the nice but commercialized Virginia Beach.  The Navy's Master Jet Base at NAS Oceana provides an opportunity to observe F18 Super Hornets flying over the beach as they head out to the VA Capes training area. To me, it is the "Sound of Freedom" I hear as they fly by; to our enemies it is the "Sound of Death".

After Judy got her beach time in we decided to go to Norfolk for lunch and a walk around Waterside.  We had lunch at the "Free Mason Abbey".  Waterside is a nice tourist area to hang out, lots of restaurants and things to see.  Here are a few pics.
