the sun is up there

on the side

good times!  Biking around frantically, soaking in the weird light, doing gimmicks

red ball

it's the sun in the sky behind the smoke of a forest fire.  Neat!



hopefully some day I'll be on a permanent vacation so I can take all the pictures there are to take.  By that time film will be outlawed of course.  Oh well digital is cheaper



I didn't pack a tank top on vacation, for whatever reason, so I was on the hunt the whole time. I wanted one proclaiming "MOREHEAD CITY NC" or some such. But "ATLANTIC BEACH NC" dominated the vacation tank top market. Atlantic Beach is out on the outer banks, and is therefore more touristy.  I'll hold out for a more "LOCALS ONLY" branded variety of vacation wear, and next time pack the Isaiah Rider Blazers jersey. Locos only.

I got to try this thing.  It was pretty fun.  I needed a paddle with a longer handle, probably.



we saw some marine mammals

why can't you take it with you


He didn't name his boat. I always say that if I ever get a boat that warrants a name that hasn't already been named I'd call it "Elma B." I guess you can't change names on a boat though. Bad luck, according to Errol Flynn's autobiography ("My Wicked, Wicked Ways," highly recommended).  Book club update-- after a nice NC blitz (The Broker, by John Grisham, in his really lazy phase where he was just pumping em out for the dough, and then Of Mice and Men for the flight home) I've continued to re-read Under the Volcano, a real downer of a book.  I tried reading it some on the beach out there and realized after like half a page why summer books exist.  Book club!  I kind of lost track of what else I've been reading.  This Business Law text book and case opinions are kind of interesting.




Sometimes I'll take a picture of seemingly nothing, knowingly, and then I'll see people driving by craning their necks in the direction my camera was pointed.  Pretty dorky.

morehead city I love you
