well worth the drive

It took me over 6 hours to drive from Northern Virginia to Avon on Hatteras Island, but I really enjoyed the night drive. This morning we visited Bodie Island Lighthouse -- just south of Nags Head, you have to cross Bodie Island to reach Hatteras Island. I absolutely love lighthouses for reasons I can't exactly articulate. Something about their stalwart nature and the romanticism of a family living to take care of the lighthouse and keep ships and their crew safe. Can't say I'd actually want to maintain a lighthouse all year around, but the idea is nice.
We're here for a week staying in a condo on Avon. My brother brought a long one of his crazy friends who likes to make "special" brownies that my brother had to ensure my mom didn't eat. I don't know, I guess being 16 or 17 is an experience I've already forgotten how it feels like. Although I'm pretty sure I didn't do something that stupid.
I've spent my days so far just floating on the waves and trying to focus on here and now instead of wishing I was back home trying to figure out which boy to date. Craziness, I know!
