Hunting For Shark Teeth

Fort Fisher, North Carolina! This is at the southern tip past Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.
There is a large rocky area that when the tide comes in, hidden ocean treasures are supposedly deposited amongst the rocks. Then when the tide goes out you can climb around the rocks and find shells, shark teeth, and dental pieces from rays.

I guess we were a little late getting there . . . because all Caity found was this sad dead crab . . .

and some unique shells! But it was quite a fun adventure . . . and something that

we could never do at home in Utah!

North Carolina Quilting

One of the first stops on our month long adventure in North Carolina was to visit a couple of quilt shops in the Raleigh area before we headed down to the beaches. The first store was "Plain and Simple" and probably the cutest shope of the ones we saw.

Upstairs they had a display of original early 1900's quilts. The true 30's fabrics.
