A rare sight, Deb on the boogy board.

Any trip that includes a ferry is good!


As kid growing up watching Scooby Doo, I assumed Quicksand was a much bigger danger in my life.


Almost home or how to squeeze the most out of 35 hours. This is one of Deb’s rare Friday through Sunday off, so we had to do something. The beach weather looked promising, so I called around and the only campground that had a spot was a sketchy one we only stay at when desperate. Friday I had to do the Taco brakes after work, so we planned to leave early Sat. and were on the road at 9:35. We were on the beach by 2pm and it was packed (this is rare for Ft. Fisher SRA) but we found an open spot and set up. We played in the water, napped, etc till dinner time. We had planned to cook on the beach, but it was too windy, so we headed to sketchy campground and ate, showered, listened to the domestic dispute across from us and played cards. Sunday was back to beach; play, nap, eat and then head home. We decided to take the Southport ferry and skip all the Wilmington traffic, had ice cream, Smithfield Chicken and BBQ – about perfect for 35 hours.
