So, yesterday (Sunday) morning, we drove southeast for about 3 hours to Wrightsville Beach, NC. I have to admit, it was awful! Terrible! Worst thing we’ve ever done!
Why did I have a terrible time?
Well, it didn’t have anything to do with the people! We were able to spend time with some of the best people in the world. We talked about all kinds of things. I was particularly encouraged talking with a couple who has been helping another family start a simpler type of church in a bad neighborhood.
And, it wasn’t the weather that made it a bad day. Sure, it rained a little. But, for most of the day the weather was perfect! It was hot, but not too hot. Plus, hanging out under the pier gave us just the right amount of shade. With the wind blowing in off the ocean, it couldn’t have been any better.
The sand and surf didn’t make us have an awful time. The kids and adults alike enjoyed playing in the sand and the ocean. Yes, the waves got a little rough at time, but nothing more than we could handle. The beach and ocean were wonderful!
So, what made it a terrible day? Why did I have such an awful time?
Well, when we left the beach yesterday afternoon, most of us drove to one of my favorite restaurants. It’s a rib joint. There’s not one in the Raleigh area, so we always try to stop by on the way home from the beach.
But, guess what?!?!? The rib place was shut down! No more ribs.
What a terrible day. (Ok, so maybe I’m being a little sarcastic. The wing place we went to instead was pretty good.)
(If you’re interested in seeing pictures from our really great day at the beach, I’ve posted some on facebook here.)
