This Saturday was an interesting adventure.
It was a beautiful day out so we wanted to go to the aquarium. Well, half-way towards the the aquarium we realized how ill-prepared we were. Our phones were both dying (aka GPS was becoming unavailable). It took 3 hours to get to this aquarium only to discover that…
Aquarium is closed for renovations.
So there we were, stranded in the Outerbanks with no phones, no aquarium. Only ourselves and my camera. So we explored. We found the Elizabethan Gardens near the Lost Colony theater (no shows were playing but the gardens were still open) the scenery was beautiful and we got a good walk out of it. It was interesting.
We had to stop at an auto-zone to buy car chargers for our phones. We had dinner on a water-front restaurant and walked on Jennettes Pier all the way to the very end. It was very windy but I loved it. I’ve always loved the ocean. Some people find it slightly depressing. No idea why. But I loved it. I could sit there and listen to the sound of those waves forever. But alas we couldn’t stay there forever. We had a wonderful adventure and lots of great memories. But in the end here is what happens when a girl and a guy have nothing but a camera and a remote.
We are dorks.
