A beachy weekend

Thanks to our niece and nephew, we had a couple of days at the beach. They rented a house on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and invited us for the weekend. The sea was amazing! We went to see Hatteras Light and learn how it was moved inland a decade ago, when it was in danger of being toppled by the sea. We found lots of intact shells, lots of birds, including pelicans who were waiting next to fishermen, who gave them treats. The sunsets were beautiful. We brought out Bananagrams set with and even the little guy got into the game, in his own way.
