I’m sitting in the MSP Airport as I type this, waiting on my flight south, just ahead of the coming snow. I’m going back to Norfolk for my high school reunion and Homecoming (go Bulldogs!) While I’m back at Navy Inc., I’ll also be visiting the old ‘hood in VaBeach. Haven’t been back to Aragona Village and the Beach in 25 years. Looking forward to getting my feet wet and visiting some of the old haunts.

Did a Wikimedia image search for my old high school, Norfolk Academy, which was founded in 1728 on land given to the school by Patrick Henry (yes, that Patrick Henry). All I found was the photo below. Yup, just how I remember the place.
