North Carolina vacationing

The last couple weekends my family has been busy exploring the newness of N. Carolina. Last weekend we drove to Asheville and saw the Linville Caverns and the Western NC Nature Center. Yesterday we took a day trip to see the NC Beach State Park which I’ve wanted to visit ever since I learned that venus fly traps are only native to that area. Though neither the insectivorous plants nor the orchids (also rumored to grow there) were blooming, it was still a very unique visit, as I’ve never seen a maritime forest. We then drove a few more miles to Kure Beach, where the girls resumed their beach glee and pandemonium that they instigated last year. It was a good day to be there, as the day was warm, and it seemed other swimmers, families, kite fliers, and surfers agreed.

You can see Ashville photos and beach photos on flickr as usual.
