Everyone was already up except daughter when I got down to the kitchen. We all had breakfast as daughter got up before we were finished.
It is a beautiful day and not even any strong wind today so we headed out to our first day on the beach.
This little guy was anxious to get this vacation started !!
G-son couldn't wait to get into those waves so #2 son and daughter took their turn with him first.
Before the day was over we all had our turns in the water with him.
We came inside for lunch then went right back out to the beach, for a full day of fun and sun at the beach.
We took the canopy down and came in about 4:30 this afternoon. After everyone got showers #1 son, hubbie and I went to Sub Way to pick up our supper for today.
After we ate the guys went surf fishing and daughter and I took a long walk on the beach. We walked down past the Oak Island lighthouse.
This was our lucky day as we walked up on this baby turtle hatching with perfect timing. The first little Loggerhead was just making its way down the pathway created by the turtle nest watchers just as we walked up.
This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us. I was filled with the awe as I watched these little baby Loggerheads race from the safety of their nest high on the dry beach into the rushing waves of the warm ocean.
make such a giant leap of faith with seemingly no fear what do I have to worry about ???
As daughter and I made our way back past a now very luminous lighthouse and back to our beach house we really hope that we might be blessed with another opportunity to let g-son witness this wonder of nature in some of the other nest nearby that are scheduled to hatch in the coming days.
I talked to Heather tonight and God seemed to have intervened back at home also as she said Dolly began eating her food today and all was well at the farm.
I feel like a load has been lifted from my shoulders tonight as I sit quietly in our bedroom and type this blog ready for an early bedtime to hopefully sleep better tonight.
As the sun set on our first day of beach fun it has been a perfect day, thanks to our Heavenly Father.
Good Night and God Bless.
