First thing in the morning the day after crabbing, everyone ran down to the lake. It was such a perfect, sunny day
The kids were still in their jammies but wanted to hang out a little with their feet in the water looking at this beautiful, quiet lake
After breakfast, canoeing
paddling (or peddling?)
fishing (he's trying to convince me that a little pebble is a fish)
After lunch, Barretts wife, Brandi came with her kids and the kids played and played some more
They even caught a snake and let it go in the water. This was one of my favorite days of our vacation, I read, napped, talked with Brandi (whom I love), swam and lounged.
After the party left, we drove a little while to Hoodsport for some dinner. We ate at a combination burger/chinese place
and then went exploring a little in this cute town. We walked down a long pier and watched some people fish and try for some crabs. This is an inlet of the ocean and I love how it feels more like a lake with the trees on both sides.
The small area by the water had tons of clam shells- the kids loved how one side is so smooth and the other is rough and full of barnacles
