I cannot believe how windy it has been here the past few days. I thought it was windy while we were biking, but that was nothing. The last couple of days it has been impossible to run on the beach (or walk or stand really) without getting pelted by blowing sand.
We took a trip to the Hatteras Lighthouse, but weren’t able to climb to the top. The balcony wasn’t open because of, you guessed it, high winds. We walked around and took some photos at least.
The whole group:
And the ladies:
After the lighthouse we stopped for a beverage at Dirty Dick’s Crab House.
The souvenir cups say “I got my crabs from Dirty Dick’s Crab House.” Classy.
On Wednesday night Steve and I made pizzas for dinner for the whole group. For dessert, we carried over the pizza theme and made a giant cookie “pizza.”
We sliced that baby up and made cookie sundaes with chocolate pretzel covered ice cream (!!!) and whipped cream. Best decision of the week.
I have consumed so much sugar this week that I had a headache all day yesterday. I’m pretty sure it was worth it though.
The trip would not have been complete without the girls buying matching outfits and having a photo session on the beach.
We let the guys in for a few photos as well.
Today we plan to get packed up, go out to breakfast, and hit the road for the long drive home. Bye bye beach!
