a novel type day

yesterday felt like a day in the life of a nicholas sparks novel character. seriously. i'm in his neck of the woods (eastern nc) for the weekend. ironically, this is the same weekend he's hosting a benefit in nearby new bern, nc. too bad i wasn't invited.

yesterday, the sis and i drove over to washington, nc. it's the type of small town (complete with a town square) that plays host to almost all, if not all, of nicky's books.  the sis and i took a nice little walk along the pamlico sound and found a swinging bench by the water to enjoy for a bit. unfortunately, i didn't think to snap a pic of this awesome little bench, but let me assure you that it's straight out of one of his books. or at least good material for one.

i did, however, snap a few pics of the boardwalk and one of our winged friends. there were gaggles of seagulls flying overhead, but thankfully no "gifts" if you know what i mean.

i'm pretty sure if i lived here, i'd make the trip over to washington and the sound at least once or twice a month. it's a different world over there, and it's calming. i think i fell in love, which only means i'll have to come back.
