that's how I roll.......


I went. I fished. I drank. I coughed. I drank some more. I fished. I coughed. I ate wonderful breakfasts. I saw things I'd never seen before. I forgot my camera. Dammit.
This is a picture I snagged from Google of where we spent Friday and Saturday fishing. You just drive out on the beach and park. And drink. And you have the best part of the place to yourself. It's totally unreal. The lighthouse doesn't sit on the shore anymore. They moved it about a mile or so back a few years ago because the beach was eroding. Yeah. Moved it. The whole lighthouse. At one time. Well, over the course of a long time, but still.....That's damn impressive. Anyway, I have never had the beach pretty much to myself ever. It was amazing.




The first day I found PERFECT shells. The conch shells that you only ever find pieces of. And there were no fish. But, there were lots of beers.
The second day there were no shells ( a different part of the beach) but there were lots of fish. Well, a bunch of sand sharks and one for real, honest to god, shark. I don't know what kind it was, but it was about 3.5-4 feet long with real, pointy shark teeth. It was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen. Pictures? No, apparently the convenience stores in NC don't believe in disposable cameras either. Oh well, hopefully this fall we'll see some more because you can bet I'm taking my camera then!!!!

Fun Fact: One of my BFFs Loves, Loves, Loves lighthouses! He likes to take trips to see them too!

Wait.

You didn't go with a person named 'Sean', did you?

Fun Fact#2: I'm glad you went. It sounds like you had fun fishing. Drinking. Coughing. Drinking some more. Fishing. Coughing. Eating wonderful breakfasts. Seeing things you've never seen before. Forgetting your camera.

Wow, how cool that you got to see a shark. Too bad you didn't get a picture. But it sounds like a really cool trip.

I lived about 10 miles from the Nubble Lighthouse, which is supposedly the most photographed lighthouse. I was a little too youngg when we lived there to appreciate how beautiful it was. I'd love to go back and visit now that I am older.

Glad you went and enjoyed yourself despite the coughing.

Even being sick that sounds like an awesome weekend. And seriously, what store in a vacation spot doesn't sell disposable cameras? God damned North Carolina.
