This entire week is a celebration.
Of our 25th Anniversary.
We actually crossed this milestone in March but Warren was
(along with hundreds of others)
with the preparations of launching Sight and Sound's current
show, Moses. We decided that it would be prudent and a lot less
stressful to wait until things settled down a bit before leaving town.
This is the appointed time.
We left Easter morning which meant we missed our church family at the
annual Sonrise Service for the first time in seven years.
That kind of hurt....but it was a long drive to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.
We were so touched when our friend, Deanna, sent us a video from the
breakfast as she interviewed several in attendance to give us
messages. In fact the messages were about how they liked the
makeover of the Fellowship Hall. It was so fun to hear the different
kinds of responses from teens... to men... to ladies.
And now get ready....here come a bunch of photos from our visit so far.
We've been to local beaches, the Aquarium, Beaufort Historical District and Waterfront
and several local eateries.
I love that there are many, many public beach accesses here. No charges for parking.
And very clean beaches.
From the North Carolina Aquarium. They seem like friends, don't they?
While still a bit on the homely side all of the colors help.....
I've always loved sea horses. So unusual and kind of elegant.
As close as I care to be to jellyfish.
After being stung once....
I keep my distance.
Everyone loved the otters.
They are so cute and social.
Sweetly brightening the path on the way home from the beach. It appeared to be a "volunteer"
as it was all on its own.
Beaufort, North Carolina
Ham and Cheddar hush puppies...with orange dipping sauce
This was fabulous!
Butter cake with blueberries, lemon custard and vanilla cream.
Everyone on the beach is windblown....
But I've come to be just fine with that.
And you probably would be too.
By the way,
if you are a Facebook Friend you may have seen most of these
and may be completely tired of the subject.
However, there are a few special people in our lives who are not
on Facebook and will enjoy seeing these.
So....my apologies if you are feeling inundated and overwhelmed by
all of the media surrounding our adventures.
