The Pier at Surfside

While staying at Topsail Island, NC, we decided to walk the pier one evening.  It cost Paul and I a couple of bucks, but the boys were free.

Even though this sign had seen better days, the boys insisted on being photographed in it. 

Getting ready to start the long walk across the pier.  Piers are kind of creepy.  They always seem rickety with wobbly boards.

The boys check out the spot with the biggest waves.  Cort and Reid look so sweet in this moment.  Two seconds later they were having a big fight over something.

Lots of folks were out fishing this evening.  We saw a few people catch fish.  No sharks, from what we saw.

The surfers did not seem phased a bit by the recent shark attacks on the NC shores.  Guess surfers are invincible.

As we returned to the car, the sun was setting behind the island.  It was a beautiful end to our day.

Readers, have you had any beautiful endings lately?

I always just love seeing the shots of your boys and these are so cute! What a fun family trip this looks to be. Hard to believe the surfers just in the water oblivious to the recent attacks. Beautiful shots! Your blog posts will be treasures to you as your boys continue to grow

These are lovely pictures! Your boys are precious and seem to have such a zest for new experiences.

I feel such a need to look out on the ocean. It's been too long.

Lisa: Your posts with the boys having fun reveal how close they are, and what a great team they make for exploring new places with so much enthisiasm. We all need reminders such as these that life holds so much joy! I agree with you about the surfers. What a nice place to visit!

What a beautiful sunset. I never thought of piers being creepy before (lol), but I suppose it is a little spooky to think about "sharks" underneath... Yes, surfers are invincible I guess... I love your humor!

How lovely...well, aside from the bickering. That happens. I love those old fashioned cut outs just begging for some photos. An amazing sunset!
