Captain Charlie Himself

Last night was the traditional "let's go out for seafood" night. We chose a new place, having been somewhat disappointed in our last few meals down here. Venturing over the bridge to Swansboro, we sought out Captain Charlie's and had a wonderful meal. Crab cakes, flounder, shrimp, and mounds and mounds of hushpuppies. My stomach is STILL complaining this morning!

After dinner, we walked across the street. The kids contemplated the deeper meaning of life as they faced the White Oak River...

Some of the girls take a break...

Some of the guys entertain themselves while the girls browse in a store...

When we got back to the house, we took a stab - literally - at a Bogue Banks watermelon. It was attacked with a vengeance.

No better summer dessert!

And another day came to a close...today is very, very windy. The sea is rough again, and I'm not sure how much we'll be able to enjoy the beach. However, we've got cable, internet, the Wii, a Nintendo DS and a PSP, a few Netflix movies and tons of books - not to mention some very creative cousins! More than enough fun for anybody!
