Where I stayed
and rented bikes to take to the beach. We thought this was a fabulous idea.
What could be better than riding along beside the ocean on a beautiful day?
Turns out, riding a bike on the beach is a whole lot harder than it looks. We
rode about four miles before we had to give up. It was fun, but exhausting!
This afternoon, Matthew, Dad and I went to the hotel's lazy
river, which is really just a shallow swimming pool with a current flowing
through it. We floated along in inner tubes for awhile while Mom slept
Tonight we went to the Carolina Opry. It was an impressive
show. All the songs sounded almost exactly like the actual recordings. There
were also tap dancers, who were pretty cool.
Today's listening selections:
Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. This stuff is pretty rock-ish, but I like Alison Krauss.
Shaken by a Low Sound;
Crooked Still. So cool! They do lots
of neato chopping stuff.
Angeline the Baker;
Brad Phillips and Jeremy Garrett. Some of the best "twiddling" (twin fiddling)
I've ever heard.
