While all the locals were preparing for our big snow storm (1 inch) earlier this week, it seems the birds had some preparation as well. This photo was taken just outside our door just a few hours before the flakes started falling! There were thousands and thousands of birds in a feeding frenzy that lasted about two hours.

It was chilly today and so we went to the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores with Joel and Kerry. It's a super aquarium and I learned a few important things. For example, I've been telling the world about my collection of miniature conch shells. I've literally crawled on the beach looking for new specimens. Guess what? They are welch shells, not conch shells. You have to go to Florida to find conch shells.
Oh yea, the star fish we found yesterday? It's not a star fish, it's a sea star. Since it is not actually a fish, you can't call the a star fish anymore. So I stand corrected.
It was a great day that ended with a long walk on the beach.

Today while Mary was off taking sunrise photos I vacuumed the 1st floor of the beach house, took out the recyclables, and showered. When she got back from her photo shoot, we took a walk on the beach. While this might sound like good exercise, its not. WE have to stop every few feet and look for shells. Anyways after our beach "walk", I went to the driving range for about an hour. After that exhusting hour I returned to the beach house and sat on the porch overlooking the ocean and did my sudoku puzzles. Then I needed a break so...I read my book. And somewhere in between all of that I went to the post office. This not a typical day, sometimes, I play golf instead of going to the range. Now you can plainly see how busy I am, and why I don't have time to blog! Oh yeah, I opened a Facebook thing. It just goes to show if you want something done just give it to a busy person. Wish you were here, Jim
