Virginia Beach, VAStill nothing terribly exciting to report on lately. Chanukkah has come and gone, although we did not attend any public lighting displays (there was one scheduled but we were warned that it was a very narrow street and there wouldn't be anywhere to park; people were encouraged to take a taxi to get there. It wasn't worth spending $20). Here is a photo of our display on the last night (it was actually arranged for entry into a photo contest; it's not how we had things set up during the holiday. That's our tv/huge computer monitor in the back, and below is the fireplace).
There is also a large light show on the boardwalk, which we may or may not go to before the end of the month. In the meantime, Mitch came across this house (actually, several houses) that had a synchronized light display, set to music that you listened to on a special radio station. Here is a video of that. It was really cool, and the video doesn't do it justice. I think the light show on the Boardwalk will be very similar, so not sure yet if we want to spend the $15 to view it.
Interestingly, there aren't all that many holiday lights here in the campground; a few decorations and lights here and there but not a whole lot, which is sort of unusual.
We also plan to move to a different campground right after the new year. It's the one we originally wanted but they didn't have space when we arrived in October. We got a special promotional deal here but needed to stay 3 months ($530 versus $795). But in January, it goes back up to $795 plus electricity, which is running about $150/month. The other campground (1 mile down the road) is the same rate but electric is included so it makes more sense to go there instead.
