Greetings from the Carolina coast

Spring break is off to an excellent start!  The knitters are vacationing at the beach in North Carolina!  Four of us came down from WA and AZ to see our good friend who lives near UNC, and then we took off for the coast yesterday.  It has been really relaxing!  I have never been to this part of the country before, and it is pretty different from Seattle.  There are a lot of brick buildings, which I guess isn't an issue when you don't have to worry about earthquakes.

Today we didn't do much, which is kind of boring to write about but was fabulous to experience!  We had a lazy morning and then in the afternoon took a walk along the beach.  There were tons of dead and dying jellyfish on the shore.  I had never seen them up close like that before (at least not in an aquarium).  Then we came back and made dinner and some of us hung out in the hot tub.  It's been so nice not to have to think about school and homework for a little bit.  I am reading a really stupid chick lit book that is pretty freaking terrible, but it's great.  I'm also working on my first beaded knitting project which is challenging but fun.

Tomorrow we are going to explore a yarn store and go to a beer tasting about an hour away, so we'll probably be a bit more active.  I'm looking forward to it.

I'm also loving the warm weather.  I can't believe I can comfortably hang out in shorts and a t-shirt in March! Yay vacation!
