I had to drive a little further South but I was sure to get a feed of fresh Boiled Peanuts and chow down on them. I mean, come on who hasn’t heard of “Boiled Peanuts” before? Gosh it sounds like something dumped into a pot and boiled over high heat and never mind cracking the shells because they are soggy from being wet for so long, soggy wet, hot peanuts…. Sounds good doesn’t it?

This looks like the right spot as we pull into park at the side of the building

I’m sure these must be good… but I’ll try the before I buy them just in case

I’m not sure of the taste from one soggy peanut you better give me a bag of them

So mister goes out back to a vat somewhere to collect me a bag of  hot boiled peanuts. The lady in the line ahead of me got all excited when she found out this was the first time I’d be having “Boooolled peanuts,” said with a drawl. She went on to say, you either love them or hate them, there is no middle of the road.  She explained how she gets a big bag, ” pop one in your mouth and just suck on it till the salt water juice explodes then crack them with y teeth and eat the peanut is all. 

She was right there is no middle of the road, you either hate them or love them. Jennifer I’m bringing you a bag of boiled peanuts home.

Me I’d rather pick cotton by hand then have to eat another boiled peanut, just saying.

Frankly, we are all a little nuts over the candy peanuts, non of those will make it home.

Have a great weekend. We are headed to the next Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores.  Today we were at the N.C. Aquarium on Roanoke Island it was a blast, oh and no seaglass.

Do you think this red lipstick goes with what I’m wearing?

Did you see my glasses?

I’m so cute.


Bye for now!  Me and Grandpa

Yesterday we spent the day driving and arrived in the Wal-mart parking lot in Kitty Hawk around 8pm. We visited the “Big Red Box” and settled for a third choice movie called “Butter” On a scale of 1 to 10 I’d have to put it around -2 with a +8 on 3 funny scenes. 

This morning was a slow start but when we opened the curtains we were surrounded by Jesus.  Seems like his name was Jessop not Jesus and he was riding his bike to bring awareness to the homeless. He had a rather neat bus, looked like the top off of Fraser, with a deck on the back and equiped with everything he will need including a surf board on the hood, a bike on the front and a fold out ladder in a basket on the back. 

Upper deck

Rolling for the reason

Then we headed to Cape Hatteras in search of SeaGlass

The roads have just been cleared for two weeks after Storm Sandy.

Sand Bags, just so you get the idea of the size of these you could put about 8 adults and 10 kids in one of these bags

Sand bags line the road

Some are just returning home and starting the clean-up 2 months later

Built high enough for a storm

Finally we made it to the beach, ah no kidding

We found lots of shells

Lots of birds with the name stilt

More stilts

This amazing thing??? What is it

But just a couple of pieces of Sea Glass

I found a couple of other hidden gems but I want to save them for later. We are having a restful, relaxing oh and driving time. I’m wire wrapping seaglass that I found on prievious beachcombing finds and grandpa is heading to the Morehead City, about a 4 hour drive tomorrow but it is going to be rainy all day. I also found at Wal-mart tonight the book 50 shades of grey so I might start reading as I got tired of waiting for it to come on audio for my MP3. We visited the “Big Red Box” again and are about to watch ??? gosh they say memory is the first to go when you get old, Ah. I wonder what the second thing to go is?

Have a great night, cindy
