|Ron, Destin, (me), and Brett with my 3 kids... can you tell we're all freezing?!?! |
(Thanks to my amazingly supportive husband for taking the photo!!)
As usual, Wrightsville Beach was absolutely beautiful... the sky was so stunning. I wish I had more pictures... BUT...with everything going on... picture reality TV crew or paparazzi... I forgot my camera in my car. :( Oh well... the whole thing was filmed...YAY!!.... and that's even better than me taking photos of countless bits of litter and cigarette butts.
|Brett took this photo of a littered balloon for me... Thanks Brett!! :)|
Oh... and completely have to say how cold it was at Wrightsville Beach. Could it have been worse?? Definitely, but still 39˚ is too cold for this girl!! (My feet are missing my Rainbows!!) So.... when we walked onto the beach, I made the joke that we should just pick up for about 10 minutes and leave. But, of course, we didn't. There was surprisingly too much to pick up (and my kids were having so much fun being filmed). With it being so cold... even at Access 16...I had this thought that it wasn't going to be that bad...that we weren't going to find much to pick up...
I guess I was wrong.
