Not only the young

With the invention of the internet and mobile phones that are like mini computers most of our you spend their free time with their heads down looking at their particular device (myself included).  Well this is not just for the young or young at heart.

My father who will be 75 in about 10 days is beginning to be like that as well.  He is learning Facebook and has mastered texting.

While sitting on the beach watching the sunrise I was able to sneak this picture.

Thru the grass…again

My niece, nephew and I ventured off to a little side road and came across this beach that was deserted.

I appears to be a place that only the locals go to when they want to be away from the vacation crowds.

Bear Crossing 2

Last year I was told about the wild bears that are about an 45 minutes from where we are staying. When I took the pictures all looked great on my camera however, when I went to upload them I lost 90% of the pictures.

So I had to go back again this year to see if we can get lucky again.  Luck was on our side, we saw 3 bears, a cub and 2 adult bears.

Unfortunately 1 of the adult bears was dead. It appeared to have been shot. If you look closely at the adult bear you will see that it appears have been shot.  I notified the Animal Refuge agency the next day.

In the palm of her hands

Well the vacation is over so it is now time to share some vacation pictures.

Caila and I went to Bodie Lighthouse with the intent of climbing to the top.  We were not able to climb to the top (thank god!) since the tickets were sold out.

But she was able to lift it with her bare hands which is indeed a rare feat.

Just a tad bit heavy

Holdin’ Them Bones

One of the things that we all like to do on vacation is to play Dominoes.  Now this is one game that I am not very good at.

I like how each person has their own way of holding the Dominoes.  How do you hold yours or do you line them up on the table?

Through the Grass

The sunrise yesterday was not very dramatic as it was very cloudy and the sun decided to hide behind the clouds.

First Morning of Vacation!!

 

I arrived in OBX (Outer Banks, NC) yesterday afternoon for our annual family vacation.

A tradition that my father and I have is to get up and go to the beach to watch the sunrise.  Back in New Jersey I can never get up this early to go to the shore to see this amazing wonder.

This is Ebony one of my father’s dogs.  She is now blind but still loves to go the beach and walk in the water.
