ah what is over there, hark, it is my imagination running wild again invisioning me living by this lighthouse where I plant a giant red wood 100 feet from it and watch it grow to full maturity and die in God’s new world where death and sin and wickedness and property taxes and man made oppression will be gone. actually your laughing at me arnt you?

we fished on this soundside peir we were actually on our way to the aquarium when we came across this (and we also came across the visitor center for alligator river refuge and pea island refuge and allthe cool stuff they had inthere plus a gift shop which I naturally bought some pretty things there ) I did not catch anything but it allowed my husband to show me how to cast and now when something has the bait stuff like that.

horse I bought at the thrift long time ago, this metal bowl (which has a nice design in it but is covered here) I bought just recently at the thrift and most of the shells I got at the beach except for some of the really large ones which I got at the thrift, makes me think of the wild ponies at the outer banks.
