NC Trip – Diving for Shells

During our stay at the Outer Banks, Kai’s favorite activity was looking for shells in the Albemarie Sound. The Sound was convenient, just down the stairs from the back of the house we had rented for the week. And Kai loved the calm waters where he could easily swim. So, he went diving every day, while I was left holding the bag (to collect the shells).

The shells are not really something you’d want to collect, most being broken and none being very pretty anyway. But, since Kai made such an effort to collect them, I wanted to save them. Now, as we are making our way home, they are stinking up the back of our car. And I love it because it reminds me of when my son was most happy on this trip.


  1. Good times...nice memories...make for an easy drive home.

  2. Going home after a vacation is never much fun, but you're right, the good memories help make for a nicer drive.
