We decided at the almost last moment to spend Friday (the second day of Fall Break) at the beach. So we booked a cheap inn on-line and Thursday night we headed east to Wilmington.
The beach was SO FUN!
|There were tons of interesting shells! Also, see those birds in the left picture? They are Willets, which are now the 130th species on my life list!|
|It was Keith's first time to the Atlantic Ocean.|
|Charlie tried several times to climb into the turtle enclosure. Thankfully, the albino alligator enclosure was more difficult to break into.|
|Left: Boat-tailed Grackle, now the 131st species on my life goal list and one that can only be found along the west coast shore. Right: Charlie insisted on "helping" push the stroller as we wondered the path surrounding the aquarium.|
