North Carolina – I just had a yabanci moment here.

Although the sun was shining brightly, the weather was deceiving. This morning, we took our niece and nephew outside to enjoy the beach. They pulled off their socks and ran on the beach. I was thankful to enjoy some beach time rather than the chilly weather we had in Nebraska.
Christmas greetings from sunny and beachy North Carolina!
I picked up a few seashells along the seashore and tucked them in my pocket. I’ve collected a good handful of shells and polished stones from our travels in Turkey.

Well, let’s just say once the coastal winds whipped through our hair I was wishing for my winter coat, and the kids definitely should not have been barefooted. The locals were more bundled up than us. Oops!

We had to cut our relaxing walk on the beach very short! And the kids got carried back to the house for the most part.

Hopefully, the temperature will warm up so we can enjoy our last few days with family on the beach.

Your title caught my eye...I forgot that you have family here in NC! We are enjoying the mild weather here at the beach too, and find it funny when the locals bundle up wearing parkas, hats, gloves, etc...when it is only 60 degrees! Enjoy your visit to my new home state and the rest of your time in the US!

hi joy! i usually make my own perogies but the ones on my post are the ones i bought at the cleveland market! they were very good! they were potato and cheese. when do you head back?

Joy said...

@jaz, I'll have to try making some perogies from scratch some time. Those looked so good! I think I've endured enough snow when I was growing up so I'm happy not to have it now. :-)

@Kim, wow, you're in NC now too? We've really enjoyed our visit here so far. I like hearing the rolling waves at night. We leave here tomorrow.
