Great weather. Spent time at the beach. Found a place with fresh seafood - we cooked a wonderful shrimp dinner. We are slowly figuring out the streets so we can get around without getting on the main highway - the traffic is getting bad!

Overcast today but warm and muggy.
Went to Roanoke Island to the Farmer’s Market. It was on the waterfront and looked like a small craft fair with all of the tents. We enjoyed blueberry scones and bought some produce and almond strudel (Oh the power of samples!).
We walked around the waterfront and visited a few shops including the only quilt shop in this whole area - there were 4 quilt shops a year ago but only 1 survived the economy. Hard to believe that I found fabric to buy! Actually I saw a kite yesterday that is the inspiration for a new wall hanging. I have spent some time trying to draw what I want - it should be interesting.
We decided to rest this afternoon due to my back and leg. Ray got to watch the Cubs win. Go Cubs Go!!! Dinner was great - we cooked fresh tile fish. We did get in our walk this evening. Now we are watching the Blackhawks and I think it is time for fresh strawberries.

Sunny and hot! Great day at the beach - really glad we have a beach umbrella. Used outdoor shower when we got home - nice!
Whenever we get a decent wi-fi connection, we'll try to post pictures!
