Sorry, can't hear you over the waves and the pelicans...

Yes, North Carolina is gorgeous at this time of year. Get this--average temperature is still in the high 70s, and the water is also somewhere in the 70s, warmer than I have ever felt it in Nova Scotia, but the season here is over? It ends at Labour Day. You can't buy a pair of sandals or a bathing suit anywhere! It's insane, they're so spoiled by the 80+ degree water and the 90+ degree air in July and August that they think it's cold right now! Wish I could show you photos, but we can't get the camera to talk to this computer. Anyway, just imagine this--we were using boogie boards to catch some waves, watching the fish jump out of the waves, the pelicans dive bomb the fish and the DOLPHINS were there too! I love this place, I may not come home!

Oh yeah, and at the airport in Halifax we saw Don Cherry. While The Boy was unimpressed, His Dad had his photo taken. That was when we were all still happy, before the missed connection in Dulles, the rerouting through Charlotte, the arrival in Raleigh after midnight, the car rental place closing at 11, and having to spend the night at the Holiday Inn before driving to Wilmington. Oh well, once we hit the beach, we forgot all that stressful stuff.

Tomorrow we pack up the race car and head to VIR where we will be staying at the Lodge. Anyway, I think it will be fun this time, I quite enjoy being considered part of the pit crew!

Oh, I do wish I had pictures of Wrightsville Beach to show you. Google it, please, it's gorgeous. They filmed Dawson's Creek here, and One Tree Hill. We may get to see a bit more of the state this time too, The Boy wants to go here, while His Dad wants to go here, both of which are quite close together, although about a six hour drive or so from here.

Sorry, no knitting content whatsoever!

Wildlife is the best.

Sounds like an awesome trip (and the temps sound perfect to me).

Good luck with the racing!
