On our way to Bald Head Island! It’s my mom’s 58th birthday weekend, and the Original Four are coming together for a celebration. Cake covered with buttercream is in the trunk!!!!
Kanz opted to stay home [although he sends his birthday wishes!], and Larbs’ Matt is in India on an MBA trip!
I left Cville early this morning and drove 3 hours to Hillsborough where I loaded into my parents’ Buick for the second 3 hours of driving. Love being in the back seat!!
We ate lunch on the road.
I made egg + cheese sandwiches for mom and me on Cville Crunch [Dad declined in lieu of fruit and yogurt] This is such an easy sandwich to make.
Apple side dish
And a diet Birch Beer – my parents always have a great selection of soft drinks, so I have one a few times I year when I visit. Love anything root beer related!
I’m finding myself hungry every 2 hours these days. I snacked on trail mix on the ride down and again just a little while ago. This kind – The Hedgehog – is another from the selection coming to OpenSky. I absolutely loved the dried figs and their crunchy seeds and the pistachios (that I didn’t have to crack open!) inside.
One more afternoon snack…lovin’ stringcheese these days
We’ve mostly been chatting the whole ride, which went by fast. I tried to do some reading, but didn’t get very far with constant questions from my mom : ) My friend Meredith lent me her favorite book, but I have to say it’s been hard to focus on the older writing style!
Three cheers for anyone who identifies the fabric of my bookmark!
We missed the 5pm ferry but had plenty of time for the 6 to lounge in rocking chairs. We’re so lucky with this nice weather!
Neverending hunger called for a snack box I brought from home [also from OpenSky!] Salted Caramel 479 popcorn!
Although that excited the birds!
We’ve just arrived in time for a marsh walk, and Larbs should be arriving on the 7pm ferry before dinner.
