"oh the Outer Banks? oh yes, hah hah hah [superior laugh], i summer there . . "
-me last weekend
ok ok ok, it was more like 48 hours of awesome-beach-house-with-the-bf's-family time. but you get the picture. in case you don't though, following are some ACTUAL pictures. ha! oh man!
we arrived around midnight wednesday night/thursday morning. somehow, i woke before anyone else to a completely amazing sunrise. i didn't even mind that i was no longer sleeping and quite exhausted from listening to the dog get up and down and strain her ears (YES, this makes noise. somehow) all damn night. i mean, just look.
and continued to blind a couple of Nelmans.
and then, to my great enjoyment, some children arose and proceeded to climb all over me.
then we took bouvie to the beach for the first time. i think she liked it.
she left her temporary mark.
THEN we went to a beach where WILD HORSES [!!!] live and roam the dunes. we drove around for about an hour before seeing any. but it was totally worth the wait because there was a mom and her little baby horse walking together. then the momma decides "hey, i'm gonna lay down and roll around in the sand," and the baby is all, "ok, i'll walk/trot around in a circle while you do that," and a bird was like, "i'll fly by while you guys do that." and 'lo, it was awesome.
this really happened. this was real life. for 48 hours anyway.
