This photo glows to me. Here are Anna and Maura greeting the sun. (Unretouched image)

Just happened to have spent last weekend with the family at Carolina Beach, NC and we got up each morning to watch the sun rise .  One day was overcast but we enjoyed our early breakfast and waiting for the light to come.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

The weekly photo challenge by Erica V. at WordPress is scale.  

“Experiment with placement and scale to show how big (or small) you can feel in a photo.”

Meet Mark Wilson owner of Holy Smoke (that’s) BBQ Carolina Beach, North Carolina

Eat in or Take out.  The meats are cooked slowly over oak coals.

Mr. Wilson said he can talk about smoked meat all day long.

Our family ate two orders of Hush Puppies before our dinners came to the table. You choose  two house made sides with your dinner and I selected green beans and Mac and Cheese.  You could  choose from baked beans, fries, mashed potatoes or slaw, corn bread or potato salad.

Pulled Pork, Brisket, Meat Loaf. The sauce on the table has honey and vinegar in it and is flavorful.

Since there were nine of us, we sampled quite a variety from the menu.  The fried chicken is made to order.  Have you ever heard of Cheerwine?  

And in VIRGINIA FF Mar Bakes Cookies, Too

Maternal grandma (FFMarlene) baked peanut butter chip cookies for our grandkids Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura.

We are going to have a doubly sweet family weekend together. Our tins of cookies will disappear at lightning speed.
