First Landing State Park

Don and I spent three days at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, VA, for an early anniversary trip. We stayed in a rustic cabin replete with hot showers, a fireplace, heat and air conditioning. This is my idea of roughing it!

The interior is roomy and comfortable with a small kitchen, bathroom, shower, heat and A/C. My kind of camping!

One benefit of staying in the park is that could bring our two dogs by paying an additional fee. Pets are allowed on a six-foot leash. Our Walker hound and beagle enjoyed hiking along the nearby beach and trails, although I confess I tuckered out way before Don or the dogs did. Other highlights were sitting around a campfire, reading, and writing a journal entry in the cabin log. We are already planning future trips!

I am more worn out than the dogs. They were hyper when they arrived!
