Everleigh Belle Epps is an adventurous 8-year-old who loves to explore nature, as well as staying active swimming, playing soccer, and gymnastics. Everleigh and her family recently vacationed in Cape Charles, and contacted the Mirror to say just how much they loved it.
The family stayed at the Karla Cottage at Marina Villages.
“I loved where we stayed. I was close to the beach and the pool. I could swim every day! I really loved being able to ride in a golf cart, and going to the shops in town. My favorite was Moonrise….we all got little glass bottles to fill with shells, seaglass, and sand from Cape Charles.”
This is not Everleigh’s first time to Cape Charles. She has been vacationing here for five years.
“One of my favorite things is the places to eat. The food at Kelly’s and the Shanty are wonderful. And the pizza at Deadrise is great.”
The Mirror asked her about Brown Dog.
“Brown Dog is the best! Our family ordered eleven cones! The Candy store is awesome too…and the shaved ice stand, I could mix two different flavors.”
A natural beachcomber, Everleigh spent countless hours searching for sea glass. According to her family, she has quite a collection going. They also told the Mirror that Everleigh is passionate about saving the beach snails and tiger beetles.
Coming back to Cape Charles every year is fast becoming a family tradition.
“I always look forward to coming back. Cape Charles is one of my favorite places.”
Everleigh is a rising third grader at the Academy of Discovery at Lakewood in Norfolk. She told the Mirror that she wants to be a scientist one day.
