Thin clouds were covering the sun this morning as I made my way downstairs to have breakfast. Everyone was already up today for a change.
After we sat outside and watched a pod of dolphins chase bait fish up and down in the waves in front of our house daughter, Rebekah and I took a walk to the end of the island.
Daughter found some starfish in the bay side water when we rounded the end.

We had a very nice walk and talk.
By the time we returned to the house Evy was still asleep so we decided to make a large chef salad for lunch to use up some of the food we have in the frig.  It was delicious !!!
After lunch it was beach time again. The sky was still a bit overcast so it made it cool and no one really got in the water except daughter and g-son for just a little while before he went into to get ready to go to the arcade with his mom and dad.

Evy stayed out with us and walked with me then pawpaw took his turn while her mama rested from an early wake up this morning.

G-son had fun at the arcade.

We all came in from the beach about 4:00 and started getting ready for a dinner out night at Dockside restaurant in Calabash,NC.
We got there right at 6:00 and they said it would be an hour wait. I put our name on the list and walked to the seafood restaurant next door. They had a table that we could have right then so we took it and ate at Nance's Seafood.
The food was good and there was lots of it !!  I had sautéed shrimp in butter with a salad and baked potato.
I had forgotten that today is my big 60 birthday but the kids didn't as they had made me a very very nice picture booklet. Family is the name and they put pictures on each page, some old and some new that makes this something I will treasure forever.  THANKS  SO  MUCH  KIDS , I LOVE THIS GIFT.

We walked out of the restaurant at about 7:15 and as we walked out to the dock to watch the boats unloading the days catch we heard our name being called at the Dockside restaurant, making us definitely glad we didn't wait.
We walked out on the docks and had some nice lady make a pic of us.

The boats were unloading the day's catches and they had some large fish.
This old tree stump provided the perfect photo opp as we walked back to the cars.

The guys took one vehicle and headed back to stop at the grocery for more water and the bait shop and we girls stopped at the big Christmas shop in Calabash.  This place is like a wonderland, everything for Christmas decorating can be found in here.

Little Evy was just in awe of all the brightly colored trees and decorations.

We shopped and then headed back to the beach house. We got here about 9:15. 
Evy went to bed, I went to my room to blog and everyone else watched a movie.
Thanking my God for another wonderful birthday and praying that it be in His will that I have many more.
Feeling humbly thankful tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.

Ahhh--sorry you missed the Dockside. We've eaten at Nance's --but it's not nearly as good as Dockside. Oh Well. Glad you got to go to Callahan's....

Happy Birthday. I had my 72nd on Tuesday (5th)...
