Dare Days

While in the Outer Banks, Shon's mama and I explored Dare Day. It was really cool. Kind of like a big flea market!! We stayed at my aunt's condo in Manteo SMACK in the middle of everything. It was SUCH a great location, a fantastic condo, and an awesome weekend.

Before the pictures of Dare Day, I had to include a few of my flowers. I can't recall what kind of flower this is, but I love it. This is actually just a tiny part of it. I wanted to test the macro function that I tried the other day.

And my prized lavender. I LOVE lavender.

This is the Elizabeth II.

And onto dare day. I couldn't pick which picture I liked better, but this guy was making ice cream using a john deer powered ice cream machine. Which is your fave? This one?

or this one?

They had a produce stand that Shon's mom hit up. These peaches looked good, but they weren't quite ripe, so I didn't purchase any.

This was the coolest thing. A little "train" pulled behind a golf cart.

If I was a kid, I would've LOVED this thing.

They had bands playing throughout the day. I loved this older guy.

Loved this little girl's hair.

This girl looked like she was having a great time. She was licking her lips at the sight of the ice cream stand.

I took this picture 100% for my mom. This is one of the great crafts they had for sale.

Here is a quick preview of the reception site for Shon's cousin. They had the reception at 108 budleigh. It was gorgeous. On our tour around Dare Day, we stopped by the reception site to check it out since it was LITERALLY across the street from where we were staying.

At the end, Shon's grandma bought me two cheerwine.

I love you cheerwine.

These are awesome! I like the one of the ice cream maker that looks like it's an old newspaper clipping. But I'm starting to really dig that look lately. I absolutely love your outdoor shot of the Budleigh patio. You need to make sure to print that for M&M.

This post makes me wish I'd been there with ya'll instead of at the Wright Brother's Memorial!

Uh I freaking LOVE Cheerwine!!

OK, I really like the sepia (it's sepia right, not black and white?) ice cream photo. Totally classic and beautifully shot.

Alissa, I like the sepia one as well. I just wasn't sure if it was sacrilegious to get rid of the John Deer green. :-P

Chloe, I found 1 place up here in northern virginia that sells cheerwine. Although I know you can also order it online. SOOOO good.

I like the sepia John Deer the best too!
