had a great time at the beach last week! we went to the outer banks, where i lived for a summer 15 years ago.
i lived in a house with 3 guys and 3 girls. the guys were lifeguards. the girls worked in restaurants. the restaurant where i worked had a 6 foot iguana in an aquarium. the iguana was named frisco, the restaurant was named frisco's. i was not great at waiting tables. i had nightly nightmares about forgetting food. i think i took it too seriously.
anyway the outer banks are about the same. not much has been built in the past 15 years around nags head, and a lot that i remember has been been left to seed or torn down. some of the awesome old signs from the 50's are still up on hotels.
tortugas is still there. phew.
we tried to catch fish. even used bloodworms.
we had more luck flying a kite
and boogie boarding
and touching the eyes of tunas
it was a great trip!
