My little helper

Snapping string beans with mom-mom.

My grandson wanted to help me prepare dinner for this evening.

I clipped the ends of the fresh stringbeans and he snapped them in half.

I thought that he would lose interest very fast but he was determined to snap away.

To my surprise he helped with the entire pot.

WP Photo Challenge: Fray

This weeks WP Photo Challenge is FRAY.

Fray is the inner conflict that I feel when determining what path I need to take vs the one I want to take.  I struggling daily going to a job that I almost HATE (I am thankful that I have a job in this economy) instead of working on my dreams and aspirations.

I stay positive most of the time knowing that I will achieve my goal.

Pathway leading to the ultimate goal.

Pathway leading to the goal.

    “nineteen companies intend to bid for the contract, with three more expected to enter the fray
Origin

Roanoke Island, NC

Today is my last day here in Outer Banks.  Time to pack up and get ready for the 8-10 drive back to NJ with a 1 and 8-year-old (this is fun!).  I hope the traffic is light and we make it back in record time.

Since it is the last day I decided to take a ride and explore other parts of the Island.  I drove out to Roanoke Island.  Roanoke is where the first settlers landed way back in the late 1500’s.  (Click here for some history.) This was formerly part of Virginia.

I went to the William B. Umstead Memorial Bridge and there was some nice scenery just waiting to be photographed.

I like how the roots from this tree twist and intertwine with the next one. I wonder how old this tree was here before it died.

Another view of the tree.

Morning Rise (3)

Due to cloud cover I was not able to see the sun rising from the ocean this morning. 

As always, being able to see the beginning of a new day is always a blessing.
