Around the Park/Precious Time With Jim's Family

(Newport, NC) – We loved not having the heat pump on last night. The temperature didn’t get below 50. We’re following the sun, that’s for sure.  We did a morning walk down to the water (Bogue Sound) and it was sunny with a cool breeze.  Gorgeous day.

Looking across the sound.  The land you see is a long narrow island (one of the outer banks) that separates Bogue Sound from the Atlantic Ocean.

They’ve improved the bath house since our last visit.  It's looking nice.

We spent the afternoon with Jim’s mom visiting family.  We dropped in on Jim’s uncle Willie. He looks great and has a great sense of humor. Also there was his son Willie Jr. (Jim's cousin) and great grandson Hayden.

We then had a nice visit with Jim's sisters.

We returned back to our home for the evening.  It was a wonderful day spending time with family.  When you live on the road traveling all the time, these times with family are very special.
