Blogging From the Beach this Week

Updating from Nags Head, NC this week.

To the left is a shot of the surf at 5:45 AM yesterday. Nags Head is big enough to find stuff to do, but small enough to get away from the crowds you might find at Myrtle Beach, SC or Virginia Beach.

It's also A LOT cleaner than both of the above destinations.

The history here is pretty cool - the term "Nags Head" comes from pirates long ago who would ambush other pirates by walking a donkey or "nag" with a lantern around its neck up and down the beaches at night.

From a distance, pirates at sea would be fooled into thinking this light was coming from a lone unprotected vessel and they'd move to assault it.

Imagine their surprise when they ran aground and were met with swarms of marauders climbing the sides of their boat from waist deep waters. More Nags Head history here.

The super cool staff of Front Porch Cafe' have free Wi-Fi and have allowed me to blog from their parking lot.

They have great speciality coffee drinks and make a MEAN cappuccino.

I'm feeling better already.

Off to the beach - it's raining today, but as they say, a bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work!

Cheers!
