Since I've been teaching, Mom and I have been taking a short trip for a couple of days during my Spring Break each year. The first year we traveled down to Charleston, SC and you can see a picture that I took of the Cooper River Bridge here. Last year we went to Savannah, GA. Check out some of those shots here.
This year we decided to travel up the NC coast to the Atlantic Beach/Beaufort/Morehead City area. We also had a chance to take a ferry over to Cape Lookout. We had a great time eating at good restaurants, enjoying the beach, and seeing the lighthouse. The design of Cape Lookout is my favorite out of the NC lighthouses. Did you know the diamonds actually represent all four directions (N, S, E, W) so that the captains at sea know where they are going? (We learned many fun facts about lighthouses!)
Three more days and it's back to reality. Trying to savor every moment! :)
Any suggestions for where we should go next year? We're looking for ideas!
