Trading Crab Cakes for Carolina Sunshine

4 Jul

This morning, Anna and I are departing Charm City and spending a week in North Carolina. This will be my first time visiting any part of the U.S. coastline between Assateague, Maryland and West Palm Beach, Florida.

Every other year, Anna’s extended family gathers for a week in Ocean Isle Beach, and this will be my first time as a part of that gang. We’ll be there from Monday evening through Saturday morning.

On our way down there, we’re staying for Raleigh for a day to hang out with Linda, one of the very best friends I’ve ever had, as she and her man throw us a big 4th of July BBQ party. I think I can already feel my body making room for a ton of grilled meat.

Thanks to a combination of procrastination and a-little-too-loose planning, I’m embarking on this journey with almost no sleep, but the sunshine, the excitement of the trip, and my fabulous girlfriend should help me push through until I get a chance to squeeze in a nap in Raleigh.

I’ll do my best to document the highlights of the trip here om the blog and on my Twitter feed. (If you’re reading this on Facebook, you’ll be better served by checking out the original posts on the actual blog site.)
