My growing fears and the falling night.
The needles droop on the weary trees.
There are no crops for you to see.
My hands reach for you in the heavy night;
They grasp at nothing in the fading light.
The fake flowers in your room are dead:
They watch me crying on your bed.
I wish you were here.
Vacation has been lovely so far. The drive through the mountains was absolutely gorgeous, and we got to make a quick stop at Duke University. Did I mention I am a huge Duke Blue Devils fan? Well I am. Come basketball season, it's pretty much all I can think about.
Our day today was spent at the beach. It was great aside from 57 degree water (I thought it was July?) and these crazy biting black flies. I think I could be a beach bum. I truly do! All I'd need is a nice beach chair, a good book, and something cold to drink. I've taken a ton of pictures, but I'll wait to post them until the national when I'll have some down time.

I also found a gorgeous picture of my sweet mom.

I think a night walk on the beach sounds lovely. We'll see if I can talk my family in to it. :)
P.S. I realize these are junky phone photos. My apologies. I'd like to put all of my nice photos in one post. So...be looking for that soon. :)
