"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

OBX September 2011 Monday

This morning I went for a walk on the beach before everyone woke up. There were just a few people out that early in the day. I used the time to pray the rosary which was quite soothing. The light ocean breeze, the sound of the surf rolling against the shore and the sun gently lighting the morning sky over the ocean. There were clouds west of me slowly heading north. Colors of white changing into grays, scattered and not really forming into any type of storm front. God was all around me.

When I returned to the house Dee, Brenda and Lou were ready to go for a walk, so off we went. By this time there were a few more people on the beach but it was still void of the crowd that would arrive later.

After breakfast we all went down to enjoy the sun, sand and gently rolling waves. Dee got a nice shot of Jack and I. We were watching a young lady attempting to kayak out beyond the surf. She tipped the kayak twice, the second time loosing complete control. Unfortunately the kayak came rolling in with the waves and hit a young woman in the back. The life guards were on top of everything and brought her on to the beach. They called the rescue squad who arrived, analyzed her condition the took her to the local hospital to make sure she was not seriously injured. Dee caught a picture of the incident. 

The afternoon was lazy and relaxing. We're on vacation, no plans and no rushing.

Tonight's dinner was Dee's delicious strombolli. Maureen made her famous peach cobbler for desert. A great way to end the day.
