New Years Day at Fort Macon
We went exploring today and found Fort Macon, approximately 10 miles north of where we are staying. It was built in 1826 and was similar design as Ft. McHenry in Baltimore.
The weather today wasn't so wonderful. The wind howled and the ocean had eight foot waves. As a front passed over us, it rained for a while, pretty hard, and then the sky cleared. And even thought it was windy and rainy, the temperature stayed in the 70's. Unbelivable.
We decided against New Year's Resolutions this year. Instead, we're going to try new month resolutuions. That way, we can start over again in 30 days or so if we fail. Our resolution for January is to walk 100 miles. So far, we've walked 5. Only 95 to go.
