I am attempting to blog from my phone due to internet issues. I work this doesn’t turn out too funky. 😉
Sunday morning we said goodbye to our campsite along the intracoastal waterway in Surf City, NC. We’d had a wonderful visit and it was hard to leave. But, moving on is just the nature of a trip like this. So, on we went!
We are backin Raleigh, NC for a week. The kids and I are enjoying a quiet, relaxing week while Nick is off doing work stuff (It is amazing how slow and relaxing a week can be when you don’t have a car to run around in. It’s kind of nice, actually. ).
The lovely ICWW –
We have been having such a wonderful time in Wilmington, NC! We called this place home for four years and it has been so fun to spend time here with family and old friends. We have spent the past two weeks visiting, swimming in the ocean and my Gram’s pool, and shopping and dining at old favorite spots. It has just been lovely! It is fun and exciting to visit new destinations, but there is something so wonderful about the familiar. I am so thankful for the time we have had with family and the chance to catch up with old friends. And, well, it’s just nice to have been missed.
Today Betsy and George went back to their old schools to eat lunch with friends. What a blessing it was to be back in those well-walked halls among familiar faces. So many dear friends! I was reminded of the blessed life we had had here in Wilmington. Oh, how thankful I am for those days and relationships and memories.
After lunch, the kids, Gram, and I stopped at Carolina Beach. It was a wonderful day!
