"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 Thursday

A steady rain was coming down this morning, the type that nourishes the earth. There was no thunder and no lightning. It was our 20% chance of rain which was to pass and bring back the sun later in the day.  

On a morning like this the coffee tastes better. There is a pleasant aroma from the kitchen where Brenda is preparing lemon blueberry muffins. Everyone is together and enjoying good conversation. It's a delightful way to spend our vacation. 

The weather cleared up faster than I thought, so I was out to the beach searching for shells. My endeavor was successful and provided me a lot of fun jumping in and out of the surf. This was a good time to be on the beach. With the tide going out and a rain storm the night before the ocean shared it's treasury of shells.

The ladies went out for a shopping day. Jack and Roger headed out to do their thing while Lou, Tony and I went back to the beach. 

Dinner was at the Colington Cafe which seemed somewhat anti-climatic compared to the great cooking our wives did all week. But, it was still great. The service; excellent as always.

Back to the house and Thursday Night Football in Lambeau Field. Green Bay versus New Orleans. We are ready for some football!
