Out and about on Harker's Island...

Philip and I took a little side trip today (on our way to the airport) and took a visit to Harker's Island.

I have never visited this little Island and it was a wonderful adventure. It is a small Island with pristine houses and gardens. We stopped at a park to take a far away look at Cape Lookout Lighthouse and decided we should visit there sometime soon as well!

On our way out we passed a beautiful old shrimp boat. Philip pulled over for me, and with camera in hand, I got to talking to Captain Oliver Lewis. He is a shrimp captain and was talking about the season.

I think this was my first time to meet a shrimp captain and I was delighted he took the time to talk with me.

Whereas he would not let me video him, he was fine with a photo. If anyone out there knows Captain Oliver Lewis, give him a 'hey' from me!

As for the traveling to the airport...more on that later!
