Spring Break Revisited

It was a wonderful Spring Break at Bald Head Island this last week.  Four perfect days with the beaches almost entirely to ourselves.  It was April of 1998 that we first visited this island which was just beginning to be developed.  Surviving the dot com crash and the housing bubble, the island has grown considerably yet maintained it's character of environment over commercial interests.

So it was a lot of reading, puzzling, kiting, walking the beach - definitely a comfortable place for introverts.  Luckily, R.M. dropped by (well not really given a 45 minute drive and the 30 minute ferry requirement) Wednesday evening with steaks and wine.  It was good to see my old college buddy.

Actually going bad to a place almost 20 years later brings to mind many memories - most of mine work pressure related.  This vacation had the opposite feel - very relaxing and no mental work distractions.  One thing constant - Old Baldy the lighthouse.  However it was under repair so there was no chance to walk to the top.
