Greetings From the Outer Banks

We’re in our rental cottage in Nags Head, NC for the week. We’ve been here about 24 hours, and already we’re a little stir-crazy as thundershowers are keeping us away from the water.

I’m also dumbfounded at how much stuff we’ve had go missing in the past week. Here’s the current list of items MIA:

-1 Madeleine swimsuit
-1 Madeleine rashguard
-1 Dax swimsuit
-2 pair D’s shoes
-1 pair my goggles (loaned to pesky children who lose stuff)
-1 pair M’s shorts

I’m confident that all of these items (save for one pair of D’s shoes) are somewhere in our possession. But where? I’ve searched in closets, bags, under beds, under sofas, dresser drawers, cars, and the lost and found at the gym. Nothin’. Nada. Well, actually, one of M’s swimsuits did turn up. But the other is still missing.

And as for the pair of D’s shoes? I think someone may have walked off with them from the beach today. Or else they are at the bottom of Currituck Sound.


  1. HI you guys! Hoping the OBX delivered you a nice sunset and you have not started playing scrabble yet πŸ™‚ I’m eating ff jello and reading your blogette. Pie???? Oh have I got a pie for the record… blueberry. pretty close to perfect…. more on that later… just popping in to say howdy from the farm and let you know I think of you so often… ENJOY your week and don’t worry about the the SockMonster hit… after all… you are at the beach and Dax ends up nek-kid within the hour anyway πŸ˜‰

  2. Blueberry pie would work. We’ve got to do a cherry one too.
