Anniversary Number 6

Today we are celebrating our 6th year together. Sometimes it feels like it has been a lot longer than that (in a good way.) We went out for breakfast and pigged out on a breakfast burrito and Billy had some sort of shrimp hash thing. Now we are down on the dock dodging bird poop under a huge tree that seems to be very popular with a bunch of noisy blackbirds. The weather here is really blowing our minds. We are supposed to be hitting the low 80's all week. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Yesterday we drove up to Beaufort which is about a 1/2 an hour North of here and right on the water. It's a cute little town. We had lunch at a little Italian place and walked around a bit. I scoured the two thrift stores there but came up empty handed. So far the South has been a total bust for vintage. What the heck do they do with that stuff down here? There must be a whole bunch of good stuff hiding out there somewhere. I snapped this shot from the truck while driving over what I think was the Beaufort River...



I love the way the water and sky sort of meld together and there is no horizon line in the center.

OK..I have literally been pooped on sitting here. These birds are a feisty bunch. I am heading back to the safety of our sunny patch at the trailer.

Happy Anniversay! I think eating burritos and dodging poop is a wonderful way to celebrate.
Nicholas Sparks books/movies always mention Beaufort. I didn't know it was a real place.

By the way, my advice on raccoons - is watch out. I think they like to jump on human heads so guard your head. (Harold and Kumar had a horrible raccoon experience on their way to White Castle)

Didn't you have an exciting experience at White Castle?............oh no wait.............that was Dairy Queen. Hold on Daughter!
My advice for today is stay out of the woods at night just in case that guy from the Indian Thriller video is out there.
Now THAT would be scary.
Happy Anniversary!
