We have been watching the weather predictions and it looks to be a rainy few days coming up. In fact, the small town of Elizabeth City NC (about 13 miles away) had a tornado the other day so I guess they aren't kidding when they say it's a stormy time around "these parts".....There was one home destroyed and some property damage to others but luckily no loss of life. I imagine a few bumps and bruises along the way though.
So, with that in mind, I called the next stop for us, Sands of Time Campground in Kinnekeet/Avon NC, about 31 miles away from here. Michelle told me they are expecting rain in the next few days but should be no further problems. We will set our sights on there. They are a small beach community and we can walk to various things in town. They are located 3 miles from a place called Canadian Hole. It is a fairly popular kite surfing and windsurfing paradise. Plus the also famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is about 6 miles down the road. Hmmmm, maybe it is a good bike ride?? We will find out tomorrow!!
Anyway, back to today. It is cool with a nice breeze whipping up and the rain is beginning to fall lightly. Laundry is the order of the day but nothing else will be happening!
Here are a few pictures to keep you amused. Guess who?
So this is Gus' new favourite thing. They go to Starbucks and get him a little steamed milk. He LOVES for it to be on his lip and then loves to put his fingers in it and offer a taste to strangers sitting nearby!! He cracks me up - that's our little boy alright!!
Also, I just wanted to thank everyone for reading the blog. We really appreciate all the comments and positive feedback you guys give us. It makes doing this a whole lot of fun knowing people are out there who care that we are out here. Thanks so much, from both Doug and I. I am sorry if I don't always get to respond back to all of them. I try, but sometimes if we are on the road or somewhere that we don't have wifi, it's hard to get back to them. I do try though!!
Anyway, hope all is well. When I was at work and people would grumble about Mondays I would always say "....but now it's only 4 more sleeps until Friday!!"
Thought for the Day: Never sacrifice these three things. Your family, your heart, your dignity.
