A Southern Topsail Stroll

 

I was home alone most all day Monday...unless you count these guys.

Mr Man headed out early (3:30am) to go fishing some  60 miles out with a friend from dance.  Mahi fishing.....they caught barracuda and a couple dolphins. 

He had a blast.  Told me on his way home (8pm) that he hurt his already hurt knee...the replaced one...when the boat landed hard out of a wave.

Mom, Miss T and my nephew came over for about 45 mins - long enough for them to jump on the trampoline and wear him out for his nap.

So, I'm in the house thinking to myself....

 "Self?"

"Why aren't we at the beach?"

With no real excuse, I grabbed my camera and phone and headed over to the Island. 

The water was a beautiful green and blue. 

I strolled along the south end of the island, near the inlet.

The breeze was perfect and the sun was just right.

Trouble is on this end the shells are not ripe for picking....not like they are up at the North end.

 

I needed this cleansing stroll.

On the way home I called in a sub order at my favorite sub/pizza joint (Lanny!!) and I'm glad I did....they were packed and the steak and cheese sub with banana peppers, lettuce, tomato, and special house oil was delicious!

Miss T was at Mom's so I swung by there to get her.

It's gonna be a great short work week!!
