I am impatient as a child to see a new place. Back talked the number of franchises along 70 the other side of the Croatan National Forrest. And I was pure heaving sigh and grump by the time I finally parked the car and scooted the 73lb puppy outside to stretch his legs. Last time Skeeter sees the ocean given he's too readily over stimulated (the pinch of footage here is cut short given his tug on my left arm). At least we got there and back. Perhaps I will sleep tonight. The ocean looked brown. Maybe shark stirred.
