Weekend Update: Norfolk Edition

Happy Snowy Tuesday, Kittens!

Over the weekend, M and I went to Norfolk.  I am not really sure why, other than neither of us had been there before.

It is not very likely that either of us will ever go there again.

There doesn't really seem like there is much to do in Norfolk.  We did some sightseeing.  We ate at some pretty good restaurants.  For the size of the city, they had a surprising amount of vegan/vegetarian friendly places.  We had dinner on Saturday night at an Italian place that had a separate vegan menu.  And, dinner on Sunday night, was the buffet at an Indian restaurant.  If I could remember the names of the places, I'd tell you ... y'know, just in case you ever find yourself hungry in Norfolk.

We didn't arrive until early Saturday evening, so we really only had time to check into the hotel (the Norfolk Plaza), which was nice enough, although it had seen better days.


On Sunday morning, we went for a 2.5 mile run.  It was COLD.  And, then, we had brunch at a downtown diner, D'Egg.  Then, we walked to the Nauticus Museum and the USS Wisconsin.  Touring battleships is kind of fun.



Then, dinner at the Indian place and a little driving tour of the downtown area.

Monday morning, we got up.  M went to a bagel place to pick up breakfast, and, after eating, we packed up and drove home.

I've uploaded some of my photos to the Flickr: Norfolk 2014.

We got to his place around 4, watched some movies, and "watched some movies."  Then, I left for tap class.

Tap class was difficult.  I must practice a lot this week.  UGH.

AND, I didn't get to bed until after 11, so I am VERY glad that the Federal government closed today.

I went for an almost 4-mile run.  Did some shopping at the Whole Foods.  And I plan on spending the rest of the day watching it snow, eating, drinking, ironing, and knitting.  Good times!
