According to the weather reports, winter is coming tomorrow. The high will only be in the 50's! So Mary spent the day trying to solve the sea shell mystery.
Our first day here, New Year's Eve, we walked the beach and collected awesome shells. Ever since then, the best we've found is chips and pieces of shells. According to the locals, the best time to look for shells is after a big storm and we had big storms all night last night. So Mary was out wading in the ocean both in low tide and high tide but didn't find any new sea shells for the collection. She did, however, photograph the seagulls who were the only other creatures crazy enough to be on the beach with 8 and 10 foot waves.
Joe and Kitty Christodoulou spent the day with us today. They recently moved to Wilmington, NC from Conesus, NY. Kitty's due date is January 23 and so we took "belly photos" on the beach. It was a beautiful day, about 70 degrees. About the only thing wrong with the day is that the NY Giants and the NY Jets both lost.
