Tides Inn. to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. Our son Billy and his girlfriend Courtney joined us for the festivities. We go about once a year and have a great time. The funny thing is the Tides Inn is about 20 min by car and 2.5 hrs by boat.
Here to the right is the view of our home as we pulled off the dock.
But we go by boat and enjoy staying at the Marina, even more so now that they have completely redone the docks with new floating ones, our favorite type. The Tides is a very unique place that we really like. It is like "old Florida" type place but in VA. It still has the original charm, not the splash and sizzle of over- designed trendy places. Warm welcomes, relaxing and comfortable is how we see it and, of course, good food. For this corner of the world it attracts both locals like us but also folks from other parts of the country and Europe. If you listen you will hear several different languages with French and German the most common. Lots of families visit.
Eartec which allows us to talk back and forth while one is out of sight of the other. Also it makes docking easier because one of us can be aft and give verbal instructions about how far the dock is away from the boat..they are called marriage savers. They are great. We use a more robust headset than what is standard as they hold up better.
A bit of golf....the Spa and a fabulous dinner with great company made for a wonderful anniversary celebration.
