More photos, less chatWell, in my rush to show you where we went last weekend, I failed to post the best photos.
We chose to go to Nags Head because:
- it's a decent distance from our house (4-5 hours by car)
- it's in the same direction as the Nerdy In-Laws' house (they're our dog sitters)
- Nerdy Knitter (yes, yours truly) had never set foot (or knitting needle) in the state of North Carolina
- Nerdy Hubby loves being near water
This is the "Downeast Rover" tall ship, offering tours--complete with pooch, Schooner!
This is just one view of a section in the Elizabethan Garden on Roanoke Island. They have about a mile of paths to wander, with formal and not-so-formal gardens (I bet you can't guess which one this is).
We went to Pea Island where we went for a small nature walk and saw hordes (well, more than 20, at least) of turtles in a little swamp/inlet. These were the easiest to photograph because they weren't submerged, but trust me--I counted at least 20 turtles!
The weater changed dramatically by Sunday morning; we woke up to wind and rain and talk of a tropical storm. We went to the beach when the rain stopped, and saw this:
And last, but not least (for a knitting blog) is a photo of the progress I made on my Ron Schweitzer vest. I'm done with the ribbing, and have done about 5 or 6 rows of the body so far. The colors are pretty accurate, but a little lighter than reality.
I was writing this on my lunch hour when our computers went off--argh! But you've gotten the highlights--nothing more to see here. Move on, folks. But y'all come back, 'kay?
