ocracoke island adventure

Here are a couple of pictures from our vacation to the island. It was a 2 hour and 15 minute ferry ride (this is why my daughter who is due to have our grandson didn't come !!She is due next week on the tenth!). My hubby was talking on the phone with our oldest son for Father day wishes.
Unfortunately, since Blackbeard died off of Ocracoke , we suffered a vicious pirate attack.

We enjoyed a light filled house with lots of time for naps and reading!

There were many monkey adventures.

Interesting reading on some of the history of the area.

We had to get coffee mugs/ of course!!

The sunrise as we left at then end of the vacation on the ferry back was very nice.

Then on the mainland we saw this sign--which I had to take a picuture of!!

Some pictures of the beach are in an earlier post and some on my monkey blog. These are some of the prettiest beaches in the US---long and empty. Very relaxing. Thank the Lord for times of REST!!
