Busy, busy, busy. That describes my life since coming back from vacation. Partly, I’m so busy because I leave again on Tuesday for San Francisco (I have business in San Jose, but since I was renting a car and the flights were cheaper to SFO, I decided to fly into there). Afterwards, I have four extra days out there and plan to head up into the Sierras and over to my old stomping grounds around Virginia City, Nevada. I’m looking forward to the trip and seeing folks I haven’t seen in years. Since I’ve not had time for any new stories, I thought I’d share a few photos from my trip to North Carolina. Enjoy!
This shot was taken right after sunset (I missed it!) at Fort Fisher (read my previous blog entry). You're looking across the Cape Fear River at Sunny Point, a military ammunition shipping terminal. No smoking please.
This is Johnny Mercer's Pier at Wrightsville Beach. I shot the photo right before sunrise. Johnny Mercer's use to be a nice wooden pier that would rock with the waves, but a few hurricanes did it in and they replaced it with a concrete one that they charge you to walk on. I liked the wooden piers better; you now have to go to Carolina or Kure Beach to find one of them.
We had the beach all to ourselves! (Not really, this is Masonboro Island, you have to have a boat to get over to it so it is never crowded.

Sunrise at Wrightsville Beach. It looks like those pelicans spent the night at a Comfort Inn.
