We're back from Hatteras, NC. Again it was so great to spend time for the second year with these generous, kind friends. There were 21 people in a 7 bedroom house. Lots of cooking and sharing meals; watching children in the pool and on the beach; kite flying, boogie boarding, and sand castle building. Nights catching crabs, roasting marshmallows, and one rainy night watching lightening crackle across the whole horizon.
This year's house: Beach Babies
Favorite activities at the beach:
* long walks at the edge of the waves searching for cool shells or sea glass
* finding the perfect spot in the water where the waves gently lift and cool you, but don't send white water over your head
*finally getting to carve the stack of sand you've worked so hard to build
* being on the beach at night with ghost crabs and glow sticks
