It's winter in Wisconsin. It's cold. And boring. So, let's take a trip down memory lane when I went to visit a friend in North Carolina. It was April 2008 and my friend Amber was living in Wilmington for a few months during residency for optometry school. This gave me a good chance to visit her and see North Carolina.
Because it was so long ago, I can't remember the exact things we did or the places we went. I'm just keeping the pictures in the order they were taken and writing my thoughts / memories along the way.
The first thing I noticed when I landed were all the rocking chairs. You N.Carolinians are obsessed with rocking chairs which made me laugh! But, it's so endearing and cute. Come to the Milwaukee airport and it's all stiff seats and places to eat.
I noticed during this trip I took many pictures just because things were funny to me. The Cellular Boutique. Really? I guess it's no different than all those kiosks at the mall that sell a million cell phone covers. The point is, I don't get it. Why are their so many options for something as simple as a cell phone? [Sorry, a CELLULAR phone.]
At some point during a walk, a pedicab guy guilted me into taking a ride. I was completely fine walking but I felt bad so I let him pedal me around a few blocks. I probably didn't tip well, so sir, I apologize.
One of my last days there we went to visit Bald Head Island. It was a nice boat trip over and walking around the island was a lot of fun. Just wish we would have realized how much walking we would be doing and have brought sunscreen and better shoes.
Glad I finally got to see them actually shooting some scenes for a TV show. The show was Little Britain. And, no that's not a woman in her underwear. It's a guy dressed up as a woman. I never watched the show, but I don't think it lasted longer than a season anyway.
