This Weekend Wedding Adventure
I dont know where to start about this weekend. Maybe I should start with… we were really excited about our desitnaition wedding to the OBX. Notargiacomo went to photo school with the groom (who is an awesome photographer) and we were going to Buxton. Apple uglies, beach, beach and more beach. Well then Irene hit. You remember her, she flooded everyone, reeking havoc as she plowed her way up the east coast. Down on the OBX she created a few new inlets, taking the road out completely and changing our driving plans drastically. We (N, L and the Ill’s) rose at 4:30 am on Friday to start our journey. 6 hours, numerous bathroom breaks, and maybe a speeding ticket later, we arrived at the Swanquater, NC ferry. Our first ferry of our 4 ferry weekend. At this point I should add that it was not raining, beautiful skies in fact. 2.75 hours later we arrived on Ocracoke. 45 minute drive to ferry #2…. wait in line .5 hrs…. miss the first ferry… ugh… wait 1 more hour in line… now its raining… finally on ferry #2 for 1 hour… more rain. FINALLY 14 hours later we made it to Buxton. Yes, it typically takes 6 hours to get to Buxton from Gaithersburg.
