After we had breakfast today we headed out to a local tailgate market that is held every Monday morning.
We were sort of disappointed this year as a couple years ago when we were here there were many more vendors and things were less expensive. We did buy some fresh corn and potatoes and a couple jars of homemade jam but that was all our purchases today.
We left there and came back to the house to hit the beach. I had forgotten that today is my 63rd birthday, so happy birthday to me and the kids filled a great need I have with these Ookos shoes. I had tried on a pair daughter had and meant to order me a pair and never got around to it so these are great.
After a snack lunch we hit the beach, d-in-love didn't feel good so the rest of us headed out.
Josh, Daughter and I took a long walk all the way around the end of the island where Fort Caswell is and up to where the Cape fear river comes in. I love the deserted beach up here.
#1 son's family stayed behind with d-in-love not feeling well and g-daughter R not being very restaurant co-operative they thought tonight wouldn't be a good night to go out for them.
I took care of g-daughter I while everyone else got ready to go.
We arrived at the restaurant about 5:30 and walked right in and sat down which was a first for us at this place as usually there is a long wait. We noticed almost immediately after we sat down there was a line of waiting diners forming outside. We got here just in time. It was very good service and very good food and thanks for my birthday dinner !!
We made it back home in record time and found these two in the little pool.
And #1 son fishing , catching small Mullet that have been running the last couple days.
When the sunset I made some pics of Josh, daughter and g-daughter I on the beach. The sunset wasn't nearly as colorful as last night but the pics turned out good.
We came inside and I made another peach cobbler since last night's went away very quickly.
We all finished this day relaxing.
Talked to #2 son and everything at home is good.
This is the temperature map of July back at the farm showing temps above average for the month.
Thankful for another blessed day of fun with my family.
God Bless and Good Night.
