Croatan National Forest
Cedar Point, NC
Friday is the beginning of a weekend at most campgrounds and this area is no exception. Gin’s cousin Pam joined us in the afternoon and we hung around the cg and visited with Gin’s folks. The real treat came today when we rode over to Emerald Isle to see Gin’s cousin Tony (Pam’s brother) and his wife Margaret. They have a very nice mobile home on the island with nice landscaping and a great screened in deck. They also have a wonderful deck boat and Tony took us out in the Intracoastal Waterway for an afternoon of fishing and relaxing. Tony and Gin each caught about a dozen hand-sized fish so no keepers. Pam and I just relaxed and soaked up the beauty of the day. Here’s Tony, Gin and Pam who were close buddies growing up.
We weren’t the only ones out there enjoying the waves. Here’s a few other boats anchored near the channel at the Hwy 58 bridge to Emerald Isle.
There were big sailboats and yachts enjoying the day also. I know there are people who live on these nice boats but I’ll just keep my feet planted on the ground.
Oh no! Don’t run into each other!!
Since there were no fresh fish to fry, we enjoyed a steak on the grill back at camp with Gin’s folks. What a nice way to wrap up a wonderful day!
Oh, we did have an offer on the house, but they wanted it for “free”. We’ll hold on to it for a little while longer since we’re having showings about every other day right now.
Thanks for dropping by and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
