When school got out we headed down to Emerald Isle, North Carolina with two other families for a week on the beach. I'd go back there in a second.
Ruby turned five while we were there, and we spent her birthday at Hammocks Beach State Park. We took a ferry to Bear Island to swim in the beautiful green water. John and John hiked to the point to collect seashells, and Ruby flew a kite by herself for the first time.
