Look Up!
Published on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 by This month's photo challenge theme is, "Look Up."  This is my favorite theme so far - it helped  me to remember to always look up!  That is the downside to being addicted to finding seaglass.  Your eyes are always gazing towards the ground!  From a hospital bed to looking up at a Frisbee on the beach! 2.  Daughter and cattle dog... UP! 3.  So...
Wildlife of Corolla… Getting Wild!
Published on Sunday, May 21, 2017 by This weekend brought hot weather, sun and Outer Banks wildlife for about four hours.  Then the weather turned cold and windy.  But no matter.  Corolla is beautiful in all types of weather. The rabbit population in Corolla, NC is certainly healthy this year.  This little one hops around the back of our house and eats grass and red berries. I love this pictur...
Surf’s Up!
Published on Monday, May 15, 2017 by My how busy it has been.  I am looking for a second job, trying to find scholarships and funding to enable my oldest son's college dream to come true and everything in between. But in the middle of all the chaos came a beautiful mother's day weekend in Corolla.  The Corolla that doesn't often have waves that bring out 13 surfers in our one little section. ...
FOUR
Published on Friday, March 31, 2017 by This month's photo challenge subject is four because the A 'lil HooHaa Photo Blogging Challenge has turned four!  I can't wait to see everyone's pictures.  I'll look forward to visiting everyone's sites on Saturday as I will be traveling Friday night.   A horseshoe crab and four mermaid's purses.  Yes, I soooo staged this.  But it was fun! These four c...
My Town
Published on Friday, September 30, 2016 by This month's photo challenge subject was "My Town." I can't wait to see where everyone lives! In my town, the coast guard keeps us safe during tropical storms. In my town, hawks know how to take advantage of man-made structures.  Can you find him? In my town, you never know what you will see on the ocean. In my town, the sound of the waves...
Tropical Storm Hermine in Corolla NC Outer Banks
Published on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 by My mother and I have already decided. We will NOT be staying at the beach house during a storm if winds are predicted to be over 70 mph.  Yes, things might be dangerous in that situation, but worse than that?  You can't get a bit of sleep with those winds! You have seen The Exorcist, correct?  This is EXACTLY what the beach house beds do during high wind storms ...
Black and White
Published on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 by This month's photo challenge is black and white.  I loved being forced to think about what might be interesting in black and white vs color.  It was a fun month of picture taking!  This little guy ran and ran and RAN on the beach.  He was so happy! 2.  This man was fishing two days before the tropical storm was due to hit.  I loved how he was standin...
Photographer’s Choice:  Corolla, North Carolina
Published on Sunday, July 31, 2016 by This month's photo blogging theme is "Photographer's Choice." How could I not choose Corolla!  This little guy perched nearby as we washed the salty sand off our feet. 2.  My oldest and my brother decided to try fried mole crabs.  THAT will be a post in the next week or so! 3.  Catch! 4. We had a beautiful storm this month in Corolla. ...
Morning
Published on Monday, November 30, 2015 by This month's photo challenge theme is "Morning." When we are in Corolla, my dog wakes me early to go outside.  Off season I am often the only one on the beach as far as the eye can see.  Mornings on the beach are my peace and my church. All of my photos for this month were taken on my early morning walks.  This is the way EVERY morning should be.  October ...
The Metropolis in Corolla
Published on Sunday, November 15, 2015 by Every few months I like to visit the shipwreck Metropolis in Corolla.  As wind and storms come and go she becomes covered, uncovered and covered again. This weekend was no different, with her ribs a little more covered but other parts newly exposed.  This was the first time I have seen the beautiful patina around the hardware.    ...
Corolla after Joaquin
Published on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 by This weekend I took some photos of the flooding in our Corolla Ocean Sands neighborhood.  These pictures were taken a week after all the rain preceding Hurricane Joaquin. As I was walking I noticed broken pieces of wood at the edge of the dunes.  Then I realized they were from the sand fence I had taken pictures of just weeks before. Water from what we call "Tur...
Take Your Flipflops Off
Published on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 by As I write this, I hope my story will encourage you to take chances. Don’t keep yourself from doing something that may or may not turn out. Push yourself. Take a chance. And always take off your flip flops when running in the rain. Let me explain. Last week was our family week at our beach house. My brother and mother left for Corolla Friday afternoon. Normally I...
