Winging our way to Harkers Island, North Carolina for the 30th edition of the Core Sound Decoy Festival this weekend.
Planning to come home with a suitcase full of new birds to add to my already-extensive collection.
And visit with my seaside cousins seaside.
And take long strolls on the beach.
And eat some fresh shrimp and hushpuppies. HUSHPUPPIES!!! Hushpuppies are reason enough for a quickie beach trip.
And watch the sunrise over the Atlantic with my Yeti of hot coffee in one hand and Kim's hand in my other.
And enjoy the annual Christmas flotilla on the Beaufort waterfront.
The decoy festival is just that...a "decoy" (excuse) for a mini-beach getaway before the Christmas craziness gets into full swing.
That's our story and we're sticking to it.
We've gone duck-hunting.
