Ocracoke Island adventure

Here we are on the 2 hour Ferry Ride to Ocracoke Island! It was Father's Day so hubby got a call from his other son in Seattle.
Monkeys are hanging out on the Ferry ride.

We enjoyed the empty beaches.

The Sunsets.

The moonlit nights

The sunny accommodations.

The lingering morning coffee

The monkey business wine!! for our anniversary

The quiet days on the beach

The warmth of the beach!

THe Lighthouse!

Hey, how many monkeys?
Since this Island is where Blackbeard was beheaded--we celebrated by swords in our attire!

It was a wonderfully relaxing time for ALLLLLL!!!

Father Day readiness

It is show and tell at Kelly's usually I show something on my other blog---but I decided to do it on this one ;-)

My Father-in-law had a stroke on May 17. He has been in a rehab facility and we have created a new addition to our monkey family for him. This is a cheerful little guy. He even has blue eyes like my FIL. He has the casual flair--jams....since my FIL needs to know how to rest. But at the same time he has a little injection thing---just to encourage the patient to keep up with his PT. Kind of an "or else" thing.

We shall send this guy off to the rehab on Saturday!!

sockmonkey gear

Well --the sock monkey gear is shown below , but I had to show you Zephir and Minkey here at the bottom of Mt Rainer (spelling?)--I forgot this picture in the post below.!! How dare I forget?? Here are some pjs I found from Target's online catalogue--I am showing a close up of the material. Notice how rumpled they are!! That is because I had them stuffed under my pillow--they are very comfy and provide sweet monkey dreams ;-)
Also a tee shirt from my daughter for my birthday in April--notice two favorites combined--coffee and tea ;-)

Seattle trip -April 08

Well here we are--ready to celebrate our creater's birthday week. She was going to visit her son in Redmond (outside of Seattle) of course we had to tag along!! It was our first plane ride!!WOW! Here we are rejoined to our redmond buddy. He is using his Spring attire because he is used to the cold weather. But since we are from SC we are wearing our scarfs!!
This is the son I was talking about--he was creating a tasty dish.

Here is proof of the cool weather--Redmond greeted us with snow, sleet and rain--pretty awesome.

This was the cool view from the house we stayed in on our visit.

There were nice walks on Lake Washington (I think that was the name of the lake--very beautiful)

We even spotted a deer on our walk.

We took a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island for a nice lunch and view of a vineyard.

Here are our travel companions (alias creators)

We also did some climbing

This was taken on our way to Mt. Rainer (spelling?)

It was a great trip with many interesting things to do and see. Plus it was our first time to see snow, even though we came into the world in hmmmm, Nov. or Dec----?? 07!
