“Catchin’ A Wave”

Today, I’m sharing last weekend’s adventure with Motor Man and his mom. And let me just say that it was something quite different for her.

We picked her up around mid-morning and headed for the Outer Banks.  She thought we were just going to check on our beach house, have lunch and drive back home.


Once we were in the Outer Banks, we helped her into our Jeep and off we went out onto the beach at Corolla.  She didn’t care much for bumping across the sand. She didn’t care much for Motor Man driving so close to the ocean. We only saw four horses, and none of those were on the beach (or even in good spots for photographs). She didn’t seem to be enjoying the adventure very much.

But then, she happened to mention that she might like to dip her toes in the Atlantic . Here’s the rest of the story:

By the time Motor Man got the step stool from the back of the Jeep, she had already taken her shoes and knee-hi's.

Hmm…I don’t know about this…

Motor Man thought she was just going to get her toes wet; he’s still wearing his socks and shoes.

Motor Man’s smiling here, but he had to endure soggy socks and shoes for the entire trip home.

I had set up our camera on the tripod as Motor Man was helping his mom out of the Jeep, so even though both of them had cold, wet feet, we managed to get a “group picture”.

We helped Mom dry her feet right away and turned on the heat in the Jeep. Then, with her socks and shoes back on, we treated her to a nice dinner and delivered her safely back home. I think this trip will give her something to talk about…until her next adventure.
