We had a few things on our "wish" list - 1. UNC-W 2. Riverboat Landing 3. Carolina Beach
We started off with 5 at UNCW including myself. Then, at the restaurant we added a new friend. We've been friends online for a few months, but met in person for the first time. She chose the restaurant. And then, my elementary school friend and his wife (with their adorable little boy) stopped by to hug my neck.
On the beach itself, we wound up with the original 5. Two friends I've known for a while, but have known in person for a year. Then, there were two new friends - brand new friends. I didn't even know they existed a few days ago.
I am exhausted. I did way too much, but boy do I feel 1,000% better. The waves and sounds and feelings of the ocean calmed me. I went there with pounds on my shoulders and left with relief. If it wasn't an almost 5 hour round trip, I'd be there every weekend.
My friend Beth stole my camera and took several pictures of me. The one above is my favorite. LOL.
