Dream Vacation Highlights

Sunday, September 30, 2012

We had an amazing week vacation on Topsail Island, NC with our kids! Got lots of exercise, fresh sea air, and fantastic food! We have the best kids in the world and are so grateful for all that they did to make this dream-come-true! There were so many highlights and some of them can't be shown in photos. Every evening meal was planned to be an experience in cuisine gourmet food. We had Mexican, Brazilian, Italian, French, and American.

One night, I got to help when a nest of over a hundred loggerhead turtles hatched and rushed from their nest to the ocean! We were not allowed to take photos because the light would disorient them or possibly damage their eyes. The moonlight helped us see them (over 20 people were there to help be sure they made it all the way from the dune to the water), but seemed to cause the babies confusion when they tried to go over the edge of the sand chute that had been made to keep them on track. Consequently, we all had to nudge them back to the chute and even turn a few back over when they flipped. It was such a thrill to be part of this.
