While at Virginia Beach Virginia spending Easter with Dad, we went out to Easter Brunch. The Brunch was at 31st and Atlantic on the beach side at the Hilton. We hadn't been down that far in a long time. The Neptune park is there.

During the Neptune Festival in 2005 the Neptune statue was commissioned. This was the first time we all had seen it. Our lives were very busy during the time 2005-2008. My Mom being diagnosed with cancer and going through treatments during that time,then dealing with her final days on earth, We miss all the hoopla about it. With all the movies out on the Methodological gods, it was perfect timing.

this is taken from the Hilton

Here are some stats on the statue.



Neptune and close ups.
