Pea Island NWR

While I was down in Florida, the kids were volunteering at the wildlife refuge with Rob. We took a drive out there today and they were very excited to show me around. After touring the visitor center and looking through the spotting scopes, we took a walk down the nature trail. We saw turtles in Turtle Pond and dozens and dozens of ducks, geese, swans and pelicans out on the lake. Mostly, though, we ran around like loons, played with shadows and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon outside.

I love how peaceful life is here. There are no big cities, very little traffic and it seems that no matter where you go, you can always hear the waves crashing upon the shore.
