Wishful thinking

Oh how we all wish we were sitting on the deck watching the waves..... 

We had a great time at the beach this year.  October is a fantastic time to go if you don't like crowds.  The weather was a bit iffy the first couple of days and there wasn't much beach to walk on but it was beautiful all the same.  I took a ton of pictures which I'll have up on Flickr by tomorrow, got some really nice yarn at Knitting Addiction, some lovely fabrics at Outer Banks Quilts and Antiques in Manteo and I have to say, the best meal was the crab cake sandwich at The Full Moon Cafe which is around the corner from the quilt shop.  And of course, no trip to the Outer Banks would be complete without a stop at Stetson's Shipwreck.  I'd give you a link but they're not on the web.  You won't even find them on Google Maps.  You really do have to drive down there to find them.  Forget all the other souvenir shops -- this is definitely the place to go!
