On our last full day in North Carolina we headed on an adventure to the seashore. We traveled east to Emerald Isle/Crystal Coast of N.C.
We traveled the length of Emerald Isle across to the mainland to Beaufort.
We walked along the sand and collected a couple handfuls of shells.
It was good to walk along the beach again. It’s been a long time since our weekly walks along the Pacific Ocean.
Seems like mushrooms can grow in many environments…
Here are the shells we collected.
I’ll share our stops at the aquarium, Beaufort, and Fort Macon in the next few days.
On Saturday after our day out Dear and I left for the airport home. It was hard to say goodbye to Katie and leave her alone. We know she’ll do well and that soon she’ll be reunited with Andrew. I also know I will have those tearful moments as I adjust to our empty nest. The triggers that lead to tears vary. The first trigger was walking past Katie’s room. Oops! I might just have to redecorate sooner than later. But first I need to start getting our home ready for our Christmas celebrations!
I’m linking up for Mosaic Monday with Mary at Little Red House.
