On Tuesday, I went to Wrightsville Beach in the middle of the day and was shocked to find it completely packed (for a winter weekday). Of course, my first thought was "doesn't anyone work in this town?" And then it hit me... spring break for ECU, UNC and App State (and who knows what other NC universities!?).
So, I learned a valuable lesson. When living in a beach town, it is important to know when universities are on spring break... or just be shocked when there's no parking and the beach is packed in the middle of the week in winter!

... yup, first smoke-free beach in North Carolina. And, we're STILL excited about it!
