We just returned from the second annual Fort Fisher Family Beach Trip and boy are we burned. It didn't matter how much, how often or what kind of sunblock we used we still got burned. (except for Luke who I think could have been sent out sans sunblock and still been fine) Here are some pictures from our afternoon of crabbing. We ended up catching about 30 keep-able crabs and having a feast of gumbo and crabs that night. The rest of the pictures will be posted after Gabe and Abby get home from their mission trip. (I forgot my memory card, and this is all that would fit on the internal memory)
Top 5 Highlights... 1) Playing in the ocean (of course) 2) Crabbing (they caught 2 big hermit crabs as well as the 30+ blue crabs) 3) A night of Ghost Crab hunting (beach, kids, night and flashlights...need I say more?) 4) Flying kites (until Luke let go of his and it flew into an electic line...we left shortly after that...) 5) Watching my kids have fun with their cousins (it doesn't get to happen nearly enough)
Becoming Maggie Blue is the journey to becoming the person I want to be. After many years of living a conventional life, we decided to move to Alaska and live on a boat. Currently we're traveling full time in a camper with our two kids, exploring North America. We have no plan beyond going slowly and seeing all there is to see, and taking the time to connect and be together as much as possible in these special years.
