The Virginia Getaway

I know I am guilty of it, and I am sure you are too. I was constantly checking my emails, staring at a screen, and just obsessed with technology. I needed to unplug and unwind, but I could not seem to find a way to do so… until I found this precious gem. While searching VRBO one hectic morning in rush hour traffic, I found my solution to truly disconnect… an adorable farmhouse cottage in Onancock Virginia. One quick click and I was finally going to get some time to destress.

I showed up this cottage well into the evening, tired and just ready to lay down. The owners had no problem with my late arrival, and everything was labeled for me to help me feel right at home. I was eager to see what the next morning had in store for me, but upon arrival I headed straight up the first bedroom I saw and was fast asleep.

My first morning at this place felt like (pardon the cliché but) a Nicholas Sparks novel. The sunrise softly entered the cottage, showing off the beautiful naval decor of the home. I poured my first cup of coffee for the morning and sat on the inside porch (pictured below) watching the locals head out of the marina to go crabbing for the day. The neighbors smiled and said hello as they went for their morning walks, making me feel like I had lived there my whole life. I didn’t want to leave that inside porch for hours as I sat sipping coffee and reading the books I brought along… for once I felt was disconnected and it was exactly what I needed to unwind.

After drinking nearly an entire pot of coffee, I knew I needed to shake my legs loose and put on my running shoes to check out the local area.
