beach pictures

I finally have time to post my pictures from the beach. So, enjoy. :)

On the way there

the ferry from Cedar Island to Oakracoke Island

Oakracoke Island lighthouse

Waiting in line for the ferry from Oakracoke to Hatteras Island. The island was flooded because of hurricane Irene.

the next morning, in our beach house

We didn't spend much time in the water, 'cause the waves were rough.

We made some cool sculptures in the sand - Anna's feet had one big shoe, and Christianne became a mermaid.

giant footprints on the beach!

Monday morning we build a sandcastle.

There was lots of foam on the beach.

Further up the beach, we saw a cool sand sculpture.


Tuesday was Mom's birthday...

store-bought key lime pie

hanging out

Wednesday morning the weather was perfect!

in the afternoon we climbed the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

"sleeping", the new fad soon to replace "planking"

sunset again

I didn't take any pictures Thursday, but Friday morning I woke up to see the sunrise. So beautiful!

the sandcastle I made

I found lots of cool shells on the beach this year

I also found a whole sand dollar.

Saturday we went back to Oakracoke Island. It was still flooded.

Well, that's all folks.

Sorry I haven't got around to posting beach pictures. I started school 2 days after we got back, so I've been really busy.
School is so fun! We're learning all the bones in the human body and learning Swedish massage techniques. We get to practice massaging our classmates every day, and get massaged in return. I'm looking forward to getting a massage table at home so I can practice on my family. =)
Well, hopefully soon I'll have time to post pictures from the beach.
