Family Vacation Banter- Part III

Day 2: The Tide Really Does Change!

One of my favorite things to do on vacation is drink coffee in the morning. (Also my favorite thing to do at home, I guess.) But on vacation you get to look at new things while you drink your coffee. How fun!



So last week in North Carolina (day two of our family vacay) I walked downstairs around 7:45 a.m., excited to pour myself a cup and sit on the the porch that wrapped around the backside of the home, facing the water.

Much to my surprise, when I reached the kitchen I saw that there was a barely a cup left in the pot that had just been made. Who had already drank the entire pot I wondered the moment my dad came barreling in.

"Hey! Your mom and I are going on a walk! Want to come? It's hot outside! Feels great! We're going to walk now before it gets TOO hot. Want to come along? The neighbors have a great Airstream! Need more coffee?"

Ah. It all made sense now.

"Did you  drink that entire pot alone?" I asked, already knowing the response.

"Yup, two pots in fact. WANT TO GO ON A WALK?!"

My dad drink 5-6 pots of coffee a day. I should have known.

I poured myself the last small cup and set out on a walk with my parents. A plant walk to be exact. For the next 35 minutes of our walk my parents would proceed to point out every single plant, tree, flower, bush, ext, they could recognize. They'd even pause to take photos next to "really cool plants" in people's yards as if they were celebrities. (The plants, not my parents.)

But the real fun was only getting started! When we got back to the house and walked out onto the dock, we realized that the tide really WAS changing!

"Hey mom, look we actually have a small sliver of a beach now," I noted toward the area that was previously under water completely, now showing a bit of sand and seashells.

"Wow, we do! They said the tide changes quite a bit here. I'll get Knox and Lola so they can find some seashells."

"Hey Jade, look! There's a beach now!"

"Wow! There is!"

"Jordan, did you see we have a beach?"

"Cool, is that a beach?"

"Larissa, did you see how much the tide has already changed? We have sand now."

"WHOA! Check out that crab tank, it wasn't there before! The tide IS moving!" -my dad

For the next six hours, we'd observe (out loud) how much the tide changed. Until it proceeded to change the other way. And then we'd start on that. We did this for three days.

LOOK AT THE TIDE NOW. THE THING THAT WAS UNDER WATER, ISN'T.

six ours later-

LOOK AT THE TIDE NOW. THE THING THAT WASN'T WATER, IS NOW.

We are not coastal people.

Nebraska does not have a lot of oceans, so it only makes sense that this is something that would entertain us. Of course we're familiar with how tides work, this wasn't completely foreign to us, just never the less fun to watch! For example if you came to Nebraska I'm sure you'd note how much the corn grows in certain areas as opposed to others, really the same notion if you think about it.

And so for the next few days our trip consisted of morning coffee on the porch (while we watched dolphins swim just a few feet away,) days in the boat on the water, and evenings with wine back on the porch.

We'd cruise up to sand bars with other North Carolinans', set up shop for a bit, and when the water started to change we'd get back on the boat and cruise around more. We'd have lunch at beach bars and dinner back at the house. Our house came equipped with paddle boards, kayaks, a croquet set, and so much more, and we took full advantage of all.

Also, the neighbor's airstream really was cool. If you look closely you can see the cool wagon in the background, as well. My mom and I were certain he was a writer. Do you ever make up background stories about people you come across on vacation? I do all the time. I've now realized I get this from my mom.


Other than his cool automobiles, he had a quaint little cabin where he sat out on his porch everyday with his computer and typed away, (most likely writing his novel.) What else do people do on computers? They write. DUH.











Not trying to be boastful, but this was the perfect place to welcome in summer. I would go back to Wilmington and rent this exact house in a heartbeat.

And now, we work. Big things coming this week. I know I say this every week, but it's FOR REAL today. Don't believe me? Check out @taylorwolfeshop on Instagram and you'll see what we've got cooking.... Come back tomorrow for that Chicago post I promised!

    1. Hello,
      I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
      to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
      because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
      wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
      the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
      especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
      dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
      When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
      relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wantve him all to
      myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
      saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
      were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
      right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
      we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
      on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
      better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
      relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
      went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
      took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
      disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
      running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
      my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
      to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
      thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
      alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
      Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
      that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
      love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
      now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
      month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
      between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
      have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
      my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
      my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
      in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
      and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his
      website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him
      direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you
      Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
      social media or place i may go to.

  2. Your house really does sound absolutely perfect. AirBnB for the win! I love that they had so many things there for you to use. Did you go paddleboarding?

    Also, I bet your writer Airstream neighbor was NICHOLAS SPARKS. You knew it from the start.

  11. Good new my bf is back.. I was having serious relationship problems with my bf and it had has gotten to a point of him moving out to his friend’s apartment. everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr happy by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood bf; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and a day after the spell my bf called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr happy. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. Please my advise to every one looking for relationship help, marriage help, get and fix your broken home, is to contact Dr happy the real Africa spell caster now on.............. happylovespell2@gmail.com for more about him and his love spell how it work fast, visit his web site..... http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ and for mobile call or..... Whats-app messages add him on +2348133873774.......
