A few comments on the Va Beach flying areas listed.

Fishing pier - Nice place to get some good sunrise pics. Very busy area with people. A lot of people fly in northern Va Beach (North End). Tourists fly in southern Va Beach (Sandbridge).

Mount Trashmore - Nice sized lake to fly over. Go early as it is a busy park. 

Stumpy Lake - Can get nice cypress tree pics with good reflections. Not a lot of launch areas. Golf course close by. 

Oak Grove Park - Huge lake with a lot of places to launch. In Chesapeake Va, my favorite place to fly. I like to fly over water and always have fun there with good skyline shots of downtown Norfolk and the Virginia Beach financial district (Town Center)

Great Bridge Locks - Good place for beginner pilots. Not a huge flying area, but can practice on fundamentals to gain confidence. 

There is a lot of farmland in southern Va Beach and Chesapeake. Quiet and fun places to fly if you know the landowners.
