Before the kiddos came along, The Captain always treated me to a birthday trip. The year he took me camping on a remote beach in North Carolina was the most memorable of them all. I can remember so much about this weekend. The water birds, the tiny ghost crabs, driftwood littering the beach, falling asleep… Read More 2006, October: Hammock’s Beach State Park
