One more wedding this weekend. Sue and I have been friends for twenty-five years, starting with the birth of our children. They grew up together, went to school together, stayed in touch, and my DF's son was married here this weekend. It was a lovely outdoor wedding by the sound in Corolla, NC. While there, we took advantage of the weekend to throw in some activities.
We went on a jeep ride to see the wild horses around this area of Carova (Carolina-Virginia) up from Corolla. Highly recommend Wild Horse Adventures for this if you ever go to there.
Some big Monster Truck dude lives out here and posted this sign. Click to read - rather humorous. If you live up here beyond Corolla, it requires a 4-wheel drive. Be prepared to have what you need with you; it takes a while to get to any store. If you want to truly get away from it all, this is the place to be, though it's pricey. It's just sand and houses miles away from any roads, even though I've been assured they're listed with GPS.
Climbed 400+ steps in lighthouses and saw gorgeous views. This view is from Cape Hatteras; if you ever look at a US map, you'll see the Outer Banks right off the NC coast. Note where that sharp hook is in the banks; this is it.
While riding down #12 on the Outer Banks, you blink and miss this. Anyone recognize this house? It's from the movie "Nights in Rodanthe." Too bad it's condemned; there were six houses around that all looked that way; I guess they couldn't be saved. Time and erosion do take their toll at the beach.
And lastly, for all of you frog lovers or haters, I couldn't resist taking a pic of this sign on #12. Too funny. Can't imagine where the name came from; I don't think I want to know......LOL
Stitching was non-existent; but I'm hoping to stitch this week. I'm working on three little gifts and finished a bookmark, but can't show anything yet. Everyone take care.
