As most of you know we have spent the last month, or so, working on making the house our home, which has meant we haven't really had much time to get out and well, discover the area or meet new friends. Besides the heat has been a bit of a deterrent. At dinner on Tuesday we had a talk about our decision we made to move here and where each of us was mentally in that process. I am happy to say we are both at about the same stage in this process. And yes it has been a process. Leaving your family and basically the only town you have ever lived in has not been an easy thing, but it was something we both wanted to do. You get to a certain point, where you think, wow there is no going back, you've signed the papers, moved the furniture, got the drivers license, and tags for the vehicles this is for real and you are not on vacation. It's scary and exhilarating all at the same time.
After our discussion at dinner we decided to hop in the car and go enjoy one of the main reasons we moved to this area, the OCEAN.

|I get this overwhelming feeling of peace when I see all this beautiful expanse of water.|

|Crossing the ICW to get to the beach|
|The entrance to Fort Macon State Park Beach. I seriously felt like a little kid on Christmas while I was climbing this hill.|
|I love the fact that he enjoys this as much as I do.|
|Can't help but think of my daughter Amanda when I see these little birds that she likes so much.|
|Selfies with a big ole DSLR camera is not easy, but this turned out ok.|
|Can't you just hear the waves rolling in. I could listen to this forever.|
A trip to the beach is what we needed to remind us why we moved here. This is why...
