We've been waiting for a good reason to take a day trip this summer down to one of our favorite places in the world. We hadn't been to Ocracoke, NC since before Gwyneth arrived, and because it's about a 2.5 hour drive, it's basically a once-a-year, all-day trip. Just before we left on Monday morning, we decided to pack our bags and try to find a vacant hotel to stay the night on the island, something that we haven't done before.
We let Gwyneth sit in the driver's seat on the ferry...
I'll give 86 points to the first person who can make an educated guess as to what restaurant served us lunch.
Emily was actually our "good reason" to make our trip down the coast. She and her family vacation in Ocracoke every summer. We met Emily a few years ago...she and Tricia are about the same age, and she also has CF. We'll take just about any chance we can get to hang out with other CFers and their families.
Chillaxin' at our motel (another 53 points to the first person who can guess which motel)...it rained pretty much the entire first day we were there, which was cool with us.
A quick 4x4 drive out to the beach to take a look at the nearly full moon, and then off to bed...
