From Boone to the Beach

I got back to Raleigh around 10:00 pm last night, unpacked the car, then repacked with all my surf gear. I considered driving on through the night, but was tired from the spending the day at Boone DrupalCamp. I caught up with MB and she showed me all the tailgating gear she got for the upcoming NC State football season (which kicks off next weekend).

I set my alarm for 5:30 am, but woke up at 5. I was actually on the road (NC-64 East) by 5:30 am. I did good through Rocky Mount and Williamston, then as I approached Plymouth, the sun was rising, making my eyes squint–even with shades on, and it made me a little drowsy.

Nothing a little Bo-time can’t fix. A pitstop for breakfast at Bojangles’ and I was back on the road, no longer drowsy. I was on the beach with Rex checking the surf before 9 am in Nags Head and was disappointed in what I saw. Chest high waves, North East wind, high tide, and not really shaping up. For now, I’ll play the waiting game until later in the day.
