Hello 2021

Here’s to another New Year. We had a somewhat low key evening at a coworkers house. The state of NC is under a curfew from 10pm-5am so that kinda puts a damper on the typical New Years celebrations. We decided to celebrate New Years with Brazil which was 10pm our time. That way we could see a celebration and head…

Christmas Time is Here

There’s no question, Christmas has been a bit different this year. Southport cancelled ALL live events. They usually have a week long Christmas Festival with all kinds of fun activities, but this year, the events they did have were all virtual. Oak Island still had the Christmas parade this year but it was a “flip flop” parade, meaning that instead…

Happy Thanksgiving

Here are some of my Thanksgiving decorations. We got together with my friends from work for a “friendsgiving” meal at a place called Mike’s Farm. We had our own private room for dinner with just our group. After dinner, we went on a hayride to see a Christmas lights display. It was very enjoyable. On Thanksgiving day we had dinner…

One of my co-workers and I decided that we would have our own wing party. We began coming up with some ideas and then Wingtoberfest was born. I invited all of my co-workers…

Just Hanging Around

Not too much going on lately. All of the waterfront restaurants were able to reopen. Parts of Oak Island are still closed and they still have a lot of clean up to do. A couple of weekends ago we built a new bed for the front guest room. This was a little visitor that slithered out to visit me in…

Rock You Like a Hurricane

Well…we survived another hurricane. Hurricane Isaias hit Southport as a Category 1 and was much worse than expected. It strengthened right before it came ashore, combine that with a full moon at high tide and you get lots of damage. We watched the storm from our front porch. There was something calming about being outside and being able to see…
