Ok so I failed at blogging on this trip…because I was too busy relaxing! It was a complete departure from our usual adventures and that couldn’t have been more appropriate! We did some of the typical OBX things (wild horses, Wright Brothers Memorial, Bodie Island Lighthouse, The Lost Colony) but we also saved a lot for the next time. When I went to Europe the first time, my tour guide, Jutta, told us that we should always expect to return…we should see that trip as our introduction, not the final chapter.
For me, this was an emotional chapter…it was the first time in seventeen years that I’d been in Kitty Hawk and the first time without my mom. Of course the occasion of our visit, my baby sister’s wedding, didn’t help with the range of emotions! In this case, it isn’t a WILL I be back so much as WHEN, so rushing around to see everything was definitely not a priority. Lots of toes in the sand and celebrating the new couple and making NEW memories definitely was.
So I’ll share some pictures, and share some memories, and for those of you who waited with bated breath for the thrilling adventures of The Brennens, this will probably be pretty disappointing, but for us, it was perfect. Catch ya on the next adventure! 🙂
