Nope, Doesn't Suck!

Happy to be on vacation! We are at the lighthouse [see it in the background?]
A very poor attempt at taking a pic of the sunset from over my laptop at 5:35 am

Our campsite - loving that screened in porch!

Wallene makes a yummy breakfast of bacon and eggs. The girl can rock some scrambled eggs y'all.

The tourist shot of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
Yep! I have to say being on vacation at the beach is highly underrated. It just can't be beat. We are having such a good time we are staying an extra day. Heck, we would stay an extra week if Pooldad was Bee, ahem...I mean if Pooldad could take his other week of vacation now. :)
We have the nicest site neighbors [on both sides]. One family comes from Canada every year and stays 6 weeks. We have already booked to be next to them for two weeks next year - YAY! The girls and I will stay the extra week if Pooldad has to go back to work [which is a year away - so no worries now, right?]
The only bad thing about this vacation is we are sorely missing our pups. It is doggie wonderland down here and it stinks that we couldn't bring them since we are in tents [too hot]. We will rectify this by next year - I have promised the kids that we will have [at least] a pop up trailer so we can bring the dogs. It isn't really a family vacation without them, y'know?
Onto other stuff -....let's see....oh! They make the best unsweet iced tea here in Hatteras. I don't know if it is the water or what, but I found a source that opens at 7 am and sells a 72 oz cup for $2.00. It's my version of coffee I guess. So good.
We went to Uncle Pauly's restaurant for dinner the other night and had Rodanthe Spicy Tomato Crab Soup. I could mainline this stuff and not get enough ;) Dang - it is so good. We are going back for more tonight. [The portions are huge and all the food was delicious!]
Yesterday was "Pirate Day" - we walked around dressed as pirates all day and said "Argh" and "Matey" a lot. Did some piratey things - too fun.
Today we are going to the pier to fish - this is Wallene's pick of the week. Tomorrow the girls are going horseback riding on the beach - well, simply too much to tell/write about right now.
I have to go and get dressed - it is almost time to go and get my 3/4 gallon of ice tea.
Have a great day. We wish y'all were here.

Looks like loads of fun! Hope the kids are wearing lots of bug spray!

Yvo - No bug spray necessary - we are too close to the ocean - it is awesome.
We get an errant mosquito once in a while, but nothing that itches or bothers.

The wind and use of sunscreen are our biggest problems. But thanks for the concern

That looks like so much fun. I want to visit the ocean.
