i am on vacation in north carolina all week long. the drive yesterday started around 6:15 am for me. i was still in bed when i got the “hey, we’re 15 minutes away, see you soon” text. but i was all packed.
i went the first few hours without coffee, thinking maybe i could nap. silly me.
i found a canon rebel t2i twin! benn and oz just bought this camera recently, but oz took photography in college, and is an art teacher, so i was asking her for some explanations during our road trip.
what trip is complete without seeing a statue of liberty…?
we took a route that included the chesapeake bay bridge-tunnel, which i remember being terrified of 6 years ago. this time, it was fun and pretty. i thought it was a mile of bridge & a mile of tunnel, repeated 6 times. i don’t know how i made that up. we stopped in the middle for a bathroom break, and i didn’t hyperventilate once. :p
subway for lunch, of course. we’re out of wawa country, so it was the best option along the road. we almost gave in and turned around for a pizza hut.
everyone threw everything inside and immediately ran into the ocean.
this is actually where we’re staying. on the beach. for a week. way too incredible.
our first night included a birthday celebration for brian…
and a unicorn, proudly exhibited to everyone.
all rounded out with some snes and mario brothers.
