Easily one of my favorite parts of my trip. I have been coming to VA beach since I was a kid and my dad says it’s way different now. We finally came inside the cottage after looking from the outside for years and I learned so much. My favorite part was talking with the gentleman who carves the special artwork: he had so much to teach me in just a short time and was such a genuine soul. So happy to have come and so much to learn and see about VA beach’s past. Must see!!! Thank you for filling my heart with your stories in such a short time! ... See MoreSee Less
