As 2009 sank slowly in the west I hopped back down to Topsail Island for a brief holiday from December 30 to January 1. And this brief excursion not only salvaged a year that could best be described as "extremely adequate", it brought with it some very appealing possibilities for 2010 -- and beyond. (I don't wanna jinx it, but could this be the year that Charlie Brown finally gets to kick that football?)

As I did with my last Topsail Island Adventure, I'm presenting a shot from each day of the trip. The final one is technically a violation of this week's "thematic rule" since it was the second frame I recorded in 2010*. But I've always been able to count on Carmi for a bit of latitude. And with that, I leave you to take in the sights of my newly adopted favorite beach of the NC Coast.

*I would have used the first shot of 2010, but that's what the Shutterday prompt for this week was. Literally, "Your first shot of 2010". So I settled for the second shot of the new year, taken just a few seconds later.

I know it's ridiculously cold there right now, for NC, but the thought of sinking my feet into the summery hot of the sand at the beach right now...mmmmmm....take me away...

Wow, I am so jealous that you're able to be out and about and enjoying the outdoors without having your snot freeze! Jealous!

At this rate, Topsail Island's going to become my new favorite place, too. You capture it with such grace.
