Outer Banks Fox
Published on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 by Lucky, Half Tail, Long Tail and Scrappy.  These have been our foxes over many years in Corolla.  Lucky had no tail, coupled with a wonky leg.  We assumed a car clipped him along route 12.  Lucky boy, that little fox! Between scraps thrown behind beach houses and cat food left for feral cats, these gray foxes are getting a little too close for their own good.  Ne...
Photographer…. Stalker….  Details, details.
Published on Saturday, July 6, 2013 by Taking pictures of random strangers. Candid shots.  Private moments.  Whispers of time discretely captured with a single push of the button.  How cool is that? But me?  I’m a chicken.  “What if I get caught?  What if someone gets mad?” Buck Buck Buck! So guess what I did while wandering the grounds of Whalehead Club this Fourth of July?  I mustered up...

Beach Wedding in the Outer Banks
Published on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 by First, we saw men sweeping sand off the stairs.  Then we saw the beginnings of a carefully constructed canopy.  Finally, we saw… Look at their faces in the last picture.  The preacher finally announced they were man and wife.  My wish for the happy couple is that the groom always looks upon his bride in this same manner. It was a ...
I Should Have Done My Hair
Published on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by Memorial Day weekend brought me big pain after a small medical procedure meant to help fix a locked facet joint and twisted spine.  That is a whole other blog post, with recent news about my accident pain that I have yet to fully digest… much less swallow. I was sent away with strict orders.  No weights.  No lifting.  NO CASTING.  As in IT WAS MEMORIAL DAY A...
Crack for Foxes
Published on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 by “Mom!  Foxes!  Two of them!” Knowing how skittish they are, I assumed a picture would… well… not be in the picture.  Still, I raced for the camera bag, unzipped it as I tiptoed to the deck and crossed my fingers as I waited for it to turn on. In that short bit of time, both of the foxes heard us, looked up and were ready to bolt.  But not before one of t...
Mother’s Day Weekend, In Pictures
Published on Sunday, May 12, 2013 by What better way to share my mother's day weekend than in pictures. Don't worry, Jaws is back in the water. My son's shark is back as well.  This baby's eyes were beautiful. Black KOW. Story to follow. Pelicans! Currituck BBQ.  Home of the most amazing sweet potato casserole you will ever try.  Think sweet potatoes, sugar, shredded coc...
When A Picture Surprises You
Published on Sunday, April 21, 2013 by I took picture after picture this weekend with my modest little camera.  Trees bent from the ocean’s strong winds… unsuspecting critters… and even a pile of scat or two.  (I will spare you, but I SWEAR I found coyote scat rather than the typical fox scat!  And yes, I took a picture of Outer Banks wild horse pooh.  I am not ashamed.) It gives me great joy to...
You Raise Them To Leave You
Published on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 by The moment they are born, you hold them close.  Only to slowly let them go.  After all, a mother’s job is to raise her children to leave her.  The ultimate sacrifice. These last two weeks I've been quiet online.   However, my life has been anything but that.  The time I’ve been off, I have been preparing for my first bird to leave the nest.  Tonight, offic...
