Learning on Labor Day

Yesterday was the unofficial last day of summer for many people.  We took advantage of the great weather and headed down to the coast.  We decided to go to Fort Macon (North Carolina) and explore the fort.


First we went into all of the rooms (exhibits) they have set up that tell the history of the fort. We listened to all of the programs and learned how the fort was built, when it was used during the Civil War, and how it became a state park.


We wanted to explore the outside wall, but since Hurricane Irene had come through just the week before, there was an army of mosquitoes and they started to attack, so we had to get out of there fast.




Fort Macon has a wonderful building that has some exhibits and also a short movie about the fort.  We were able to watch the movie and learn more about the fort away from the mosquitoes.







After we explored the fort, we decided we had a little bit of time to go to the beach and do some fishing,

playing,




and sleeping.

  1. Sounds like a beautiful adventure. Delighted to meet you tonight. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into all of God's goodness.

    Splashin'.
