The Inn Is In

Well, we just returned from our first visit to the First Colony Inn. It had a quaint, homey, colonial style and the staff were all very pleasant. The inn was built in 1932, and there are a lot of fun nods to that all over the property. There is a common library on the second floor with the guest book and ledger from the 1930s that Matt and I got a kick out of reading.

I have to mention how windy it was there. The winds were a pretty steady 25 mph and the ocean surf looked like a cappuccino. So of course Matt and I decided to throw on our suits and go play in the water. On Saturday we went down to the beach where I was attacked by a shark and Matt got a new pair of shoes.

Ok, so I thought I was attacked by a shark but it turned out to be this:

It's funny now, but that sucker could have taken someone out so we decided to admire the ocean from a distance; which is how Matt got a new pair of shoes. We were just standing on the beach trying not to get blown away while I nursed my shin, and this washed up on shore:

Now normally we're anti-croc (admit it- they're ugly) so we were going to just fish it out and throw it away, but not more than 30 seconds later the other shoe washed up on the shore. With a full set in hand, Matt tried them on and they were a perfect fit.

Yes, he kept them. Yes, this concerns me a bit. But as long as he doesn't start coming home with those random socks you always see on the side of the road, I think we'll be ok... I'll keep you posted.

So, will we be seeing Mr. Barker in his red crocs in front of the classroom?? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nice blog! -T
