BAD TIMING...kids are out of school and the best and cheapest thing to get the energy out is to take them to the BEACH....but wait. This weekend there are bacteria warnings all across Hampton Roads. WAVY-TV is helping to track the conditions. You can check that out HERE.
You can also go directly HERE to the Va Dept of Health site. You can see the flagged area and when they are lifted.
BUT...kids don't care about bacteria and just want to get in the water. Below is a video of a bunch of close calls from Shark attacks. Just show them that and say that there are shark spotting. Might be easier...depends on your parenting philosophy. haha.
