Happy 28th anniversary to Steve and me! Here are some pictures from yesterday’s anniversary outing.
As were pulling out of the drive way, we were treated to the sight of this happy foursome bidding us adieu. (Nathan is still dressed in the stuff he slept in which is why he looks so “coldly clad.”
Although my dear husband thought of everything to make this day special, it appears as though he forgot to write on his to-do list, “Order sunny, balmy weather.”
It was about 45 degrees all day with some pretty good wind whipping around. We dressed in layers, put on hats and scarves, cranked up the heater and the seat warmers and did pretty well. Not for the whole trip, mind you, but at least for an hour when I told Steve through chattering teeth that it just might be time to put the top back up!
I must say that I don't know all those lovely stars in movies manage to drive around in a convertible all day and then pop out of the car for dinner with unmussed hair. I guess it would help to have a hairdresser riding in the car behind me, like they do. Ya think?
Here’s the famous Rodanthe house. (Which by the way, a realtor in our church is in the process of selling.) I know there are many other pictures of it on the Internet but I just snapped this one in a hurry while we were driving by.
We eventually made it to our destination—the lovely Cape Hatteras lighthouse. From what we understood, it’s the most widely recognized lighthouse in the country. Steve and I both loved that the base is painted red. Such a zippy color combination.
Steve makes friends where ever he goes, and the lighthouse was no exception.
I must say that it was marvelously invigorating to be buffeted by such a chilly wind! Happily, the fresh air and exercise served to whet our appetites for our evening repast, eaten by a roaring fire . . .
Our marvelous repast was followed by chocolate chip pie warmed and topped with ice cream (for me) and a coconut chocolate pie for Steve.
We had thought about going to a movie after dinner, but by the time we finished eating, we were both ready to just waddle on home and go straight to our pajamas.
Which we did. Which was a wonderful way to end a wonderful day.
