Tropical Storm Andrea made its way up from the Gulf Coast, right up to the North Carolina Outer Banks. This meant that we had wind and rain on our anniversary, but that’s fine because we had each other and some indoor activities.
We spent the morning of our anniversary at the NC Aquarium on Manteo. Wonderful exhibits there, including an alligator snapping turtle. They have a nice campus overlooking the ocean. We sat for awhile and watched the sea.
Afterwards, we found a great little (and I mean little) café in downtown Manteo and it was delicious. We toured some of the local shops and Jason found a gorgeous antique print for his office.
We decided to spend some time on the beach once the rain let up, but we weren’t expecting the tropical winds to use sand as shrapnel. Ow.
Next was dinner, and it was DELICIOUS! We were most pleased.

When it got too dark to see anything, Jason had me sit on the couch. He went to the bedroom and when he came back he proposed. It was heart moving! My response was “Yes! Yesyesyesyes YAY!”
Despite the rain and piercing wind, we had a great time.
