First Friday Leisurely Walk Returns

Spring is here and with luck, the nor’easter of the week is a thing of the past and we will be able to have our monthly ILR ramble in April, May, and June. Members and their dogs enjoy a leisurely walk in the coldest of Virginia Beach neighborhoods.

The Story By the Sea neighborhood is on the south side of Shore Drive east of Great Neck Road. The neighborhood features a mix of original cottages and modern homes, quiet streets, a linear park, tidal creeks, and pleasant neighbors. We meet in the car park behind the Food Lion and amble out at 10:15 to give everybody a chance to park and chat a bit. The pace is leisurely and much of the neighborhood is sheltered from wind and sun.

First Friday Dog Walk Takes a Break

The July heat discouraged most of our member and hounds Crash, Missy, and Nick wilted as Judy  Schooley and Dave Hamby walked them in the Story by the Sea Neighborhood in July 4 weekend heat and humidity. Given that August will be hot and September 1 is the start of Labor Day weekend, Judy and Dave have wisely decided to suspend the walk series for August and September. Regular walks will resume on October 6.
