We spent the last afternoon of the year at Jockey's Ridge State Park. Fun fact for you: these are the tallest sand dunes on the east coast! Whaddya know.
Here's the thing: I don't get kite-flying. Like, as a pastime. Is it fun? It doesn't seem all that fun. Not to me. But it does make for pretty pictures.
Now, this? This looks like fun. There were lots of kids (and grown-up kids) sledding, sliding, and rolling down the dune.
I elected to run down, myself. Sand in my shoes is ok, but sand in my unmentionables = not ok.
We climbed some dunes, brain-stormed some sketch comedy ideas, talked about life goals (or lack thereof), dramatically reinacted part of a Britney Spears video, got contemplative for a moment, met a golden retriever named "Reba," watched some hang-gliders and parasail-ers.
And just generally enjoyed being out in the sun.
