I can see for miles….

This eastern part of North Carolina is certainly a dramatic change from the west! F.L.A.T.

Then we hit the coast and the eastern vista is just the vast ocean….all the way to Spain….

Mostly gray day, but the looooong sandy beach for the Atlantic Ocean still stirs the emotions. And what should we see but dolphins playing just off shore! Two in the photo here, but there was a pod with a good number of them. Farther out, a flock of birds were repeatedly diving into the water. We could hardly see them, but the splashes from their dives were fabulous!

Ross and Ryan are puzzled by walking on sand, and fascinated to touch it. Sorry, I should have shot a photo of Ryan’s handiwork there in front of him…it was a fairly good representation of Picasso.

Oh, perhaps not. Robyn says I was looking at it upside down.

  1. Lucky to see the dolphins, we were! The eagles we’ve seen this trip have all been quite distant. Maybe on our way up through Tennessee in February…..

    Shucks, you get to come along with us this way, but don’t have to help empty the holding tanks! Should’ve seen us yesterday picking up the monthly shipment of diapers. Little UPS Store in a small strip shopping center. Clogged up their entire parking lot with the Taxi.

    Still, it’s a good life, and we’re enjoying it alot! Keep watching….

  2. I love the picture of the boys “discovering” sand. Being blind puts you in a whole other world of sensations. Don’t you just wonder what they are thinking?

    • Ho ho, we wonder all the time what they’re thinking!

      But seriously, I wish they had language so we could hear them describe the scene they sense. And yet, that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms: then we’d spend every waking minute describing everything that passes the windows as we motor along, and taking them over to feel everything out there so they’d have a more complete picture, etc, etc.

      Still, it’s interesting to wonder. They clearly are more interested in some things than others. Thankfully, they don’t try to taste everything!
