Yes yes, I've been away. Last Wednesday I left for DC after work and left from there Thursday morning with Diogo and headed for the North Carolina coast. After many hours in the car, we arrived at my grandfather's beach house. Quickly I realized that the air conditioning was not working, which was a bit of a bummer. At least all the windows had been cracked open last summer when the AC went out while my parents were there. After a trip to Food Lion for groceries, Jerry and Sara arrived. Actually, our reunion was in the beer aisle - like you do.
We had a really lovely time (aside from the lack of air conditioning) lying on the beach, playing cards, drinking beer, and enjoying seafood. We played a lot of Playmaker at this bar called the Sea Witch Bar and Tiki Lounge. I also had a lot of fun swimming in the ocean again. The water temperature was perfect, and we even had some good waves to body surf. I have a few thoughts that I'll get to later. For now, you can check out the photos from the trip via the link on the right.
