Elizabethan Gardens and the Beach

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 theIMG_0864re 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.

$50 later…

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.

Engagement Photos

I just want to have a shout-out to an up and coming photographer. Many thanks to Jonny Mocan from JMs Photography  who took my engagement photos. The shots look beautiful and they definitely capture the joy and happiness.


Thank you!!!

Where are you Spring Time…

Where are you spring time. Why can’t I find you. Why have you gone away……

Seriously now. It’s supposed to be spring time. Why is this weather so dang on fickle. One day its 70 degrees the next its 40 degrees. Someone tell the weathermen something needs to change.

I miss the ocean. :'(


Carolina Tiger Rescue

I can’t remember if I have posted about the Carolina Tiger Rescue before but even if I have I think it is worth another post. I love going to this place and plan on volunteering there when I have the chance. There’s something about spending some time with these big and little cats and wondering what they would say if they could tell you their story. These cats all have interesting backgrounds, many of which are sad, and you learn something new every time you visit. I love these animals and can’t wait to go back. My battery died half way through the twilight tour so I don’t have too many pictures but I’ll get some more. I’d love to go there and just sit there and listen to the sounds. It is amazing to hear the lions bellowing and carrying on a conversation with each other.
