VB Basics is an open invitation to rediscover and reconnect. Rediscover the heritage of our beautiful city of Virginia Beach, notice the old that typically escapes us in our day to day movements around the neighborhood, and celebrate new sprouts of life and culture on our streets and our shores. Reconnect with ourselves, nature, and each other. Take back time, regain our senses, step back and observe. There is so much to enjoy and so many relationships to treasure around here.
“Do the best that you can in the place you are at, and be kind”
– Scott Nearing
As an import from a vegetable farm in Vermont who married a VB native, I have immersed myself in the culture and lifestyle of Virginia Beach and the Hampton Roads area for many years. I share both a local and outside perspective on what this vibrant and diverse community has to offer from entertainment, to food, to outdoor activities and the beach, in an effort to maximize your experience whether you’re a seasoned local or a curious tourist. I encourage you to join me on this journey and to follow along as I take a soulful quest to reconnect with the basics and explore Virginia Beach.
