Vacation: Part 1 - Nofolk

We departed Memphis early Thursday morning for Norfolk. Katie picked us up from the airport and after a brief nap (for Evie) we went to lunch at Public House.

That's right, those are homemade tater tots wrapped in bacon and served with a homemade chipotle ketchup.

The afternoon was filled with a visit for the Naval Exchange and House Hunters.

For dinner we met Brett, Sarah, and Wes at Aw Shuck's (one of Brett and Sarah's favorite places).

Brett convinced Bryan to have oyster shooters and even eat raw oysters.

He did not like them.

After dinner we stopped at a local wine and beer mart to pick up some beer to take over to Wes and Katie's. We ran into one of Brett's students who criticized my beer selection as only a pretty label. It tasted fantastic, thankyouverymuch.

Friday morning we had a great breakfast at Wes and Katie's. It was nice to be lazy and all hang out together.

After breakfast we went with Brett to his and Sarah's apartment. She was off during the day so we saw their apartment, Brett's building, Sarah's hospital, and a little bit of Norfolk.

Harborfest was going on in Norfolk and I wanted to see what it was all about.

Boats and sailors!

I loved going to Harborfest and if you are ever in the area you should definitely go! There is something so amazing about being around the boats, seeing the diversity of the boats (and the sailors outfits!) and just being near water.

After Harborfest Bryan and I hit the road to Charlottesville
