Help! I'm buried in content and unable to dig out before we hit the road again. Oh, well. At least I can't complain that it's ever boring around here...
While I'm trying to get my projects in order, I'll share a handful of photos from our recent trip with my in-laws to North Carolina's Outer Banks. (I recently posted about our visit to the wild horses.)
Above: Last year I took a photo of my oldest niece with a shark tooth she found on the beach. This year her prize find was an intact clam shell.
Below left: Photo taken exactly a year ago of Cricket and Jeff at Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge on the way to the Outer Banks. Below right: Cricket, Jeff and the newest walker, Nora, on this year's adventure. Life has changed quite a bit in the last year!
My sandy little beach bum.
Below top left: Jeff waiting for waves on a glassy day with a band of pelicans. Below top right: Jeff on a good wave day. Below bottom left: Yum. Below bottom right: Egret sighting during my 6 a.m. coffee run.
One of my favorite photos of the trip: my youngest nephew.
Below left: My nephew perfects his skim boarding skills. Below right: Cricket and her cousin take a break from sandcastle building to splash.
Scenes from the dunes.
Feeding turtles at the neighborhood pond is always a very serious endeavor. "Otherwise they'll be hungry!" Cricket told me. Apparently Nora was hungry, too.
The kids had a blast catching crabs.
Stay tuned for a sisterly beach photo session and highlights from a newborn session.
