He Spotted a Fox on North Carolina Beach

My good friend and blog follower Bill is on the beat.  Again. This time in OIB NC.  (That’s Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina.)

 This morning he sent me a photo. (He won the caption contest at the local paper recently- got in the newspaper Without dying or getting arrested post. 

Since I was on jury duty today all day,  it felt good to know I had a guest blogpost at the ready! Thanks Bill.  See his photograph below.

And the coincidence is I’d just watched the new version of The Little Prince and was reminded of my favorite quotation.

“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” “What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.


VW Family in North Carolina

from the Archives.  I learned to drive on a VW bug. 1969. Black, stick-shift.  Taken in North Carolina a couple of years ago.

Just as it was. No set-up. Generations of Volkswagens.
