Walk Abouts....

Some pictures and musings regarding my walk about......

Walk abouts are fun because......

Of pretty waitress who your buddy invites to his party to drink beer... and they actually come... and drink beer.



Of good friends who dance like nobody's watching....



And the same buddy who builds a real life bar in his house.....





Because of ocean side restaurants.....



With sweet views from the pier.....



Because of microbrews served with a slice of orange....



And crab dip and oyster's oceanic to go with that microbrew.... (hell yeah, I ate it all)



Piers that still stand after numerous hurricanes....





Because of sea oats lining the ocean.....



And, of course the ocean on the right side....



Dipping your toes in that ocean even when its cold, cold, cold.....



Sea birds hunting for food.....





Coastal water ways as pretty as a picture.....





Rivers that lead to the ocean.....





Surprising statues when you round a corner on the board walk....



Being there when the Coast Guard returns from a long trip at sea.....






Battle ships that are now museums.....



Finding old places of employment......



City streets as old as any in the nation.......



Just a few reasons walk abouts are good for the soul....

Nice!

I recognize where you are (or were when you took these). What a great little city!

Binky---I don't recognize, but I maybe could guess...

b and d. It is a nice little city. Some parts I hardly recognize due to growth, though. And of course, traffic has increased.

Yeah, I supposed "little city" only applies to the historic downtown, not the spreading sprawl. We have family south of there, and I am amazed each year as it takes longer to get out of "town" because of the new wal-marts and what not plazas stretching further.

Very true, b. An explosion of growth is an understatement.
