Wander project Oak Island NC…


IMG_1000In the summer of 2013, we wandered as an entire family to a little location in North Carolina known as Oak Island. It is an interesting family vacation. First off my nephew had moved to Seattle Washington the year before, and two years before that (2011) we had moved to Maryland. The family was spanning the country. We had gotten together in 2012 for Christmas, but in 2013 we (Maryland Andersen’s) hadn’t gone to Christmas because I had an inner ear infection (and frankly even moving was painful).

IMG_1017My nephew flew from Seattle to North Carolina. My sisters packed their families and drove to North Carolina. My mom and dad rode along with my youngest sister, and we headed south from Washington DC. Barb had to work that Friday, so we didn’t leave DC until 5 pm. The sad reality of that was of course that we hit DC traffic and didn’t make it to Oak Island NC until well past 3 in the morning. It was a tough drive. Both of us (My wife and I) were exhausted from working all day. Plus, sitting in DC traffic for three hours just to get to I95 south made for a long, long trip.

Mom and Dad had rented a wonderful cottage/house right on the water. The next morning, groggy and not awake, we arose to the joyous smell of breakfast. Is there a finer meal than breakfast made by somebody else? I think not! All of us were there, mom, dad, the nieces (both) nephew (one), my sisters, their husbands. It was a wonderful chance for all of us to be together and relax as a family. Plus, the beach was right there…
