I did these pictures for my husband for Father’s Day. We both love to play golf and hopefully we can pass the love of the game on to her.
I took these at Eagle Ridge Golf Club.
After a very busy week, I finally found time to do this shoot on a Friday, 3pm, Father’s Day weekend. I just knew they would be way too busy to allow me to get on the course. The guys in the pro shop were so nice and accommodating. They were having a tournament but they suggested a few places that I could take a my pictures. They even offered me a golf cart! Since it was so very hot, I opted to just to stay at the clubhouse and use the first and 9th hole for a quick session.
I can’t wait to see this storyboard up in his office.
Last weekend we were so busy that he did not get to have his lazy weekend so he gets to be lazy this weekend.
Happy Father’s Day Honey!

We just got back from our vacation to Kill Devil Hills in the beautiful NC Outer Banks. We discovered a little jewel of a motel last year and there was no doubt about where we would stay this year.
The Cavalier Motel started in 1949. It is the classic 50′s type motel with the “U” shape building layout with the pool in the middle of the parking lot. There are no key cards here but real keys with the classic big, plastic, diamond keychain. I forgot to take a picture of that for y’all.
The oceanfront rooms are ON the beach as you can see in the last picture in the collage below. They also have a great playground. We had breakfast on the porch each morning and you can’t beat the view from those chairs. You take 4 steps off the porch and your toes are in the sand. I told you that the rooms were ON the beach!
We were able to watch dolphins everyday and I did catch one picture of flipping out of the water and onto his back. I was on the porch so I was not too close to the water but I wanted to share it anyway.
My daughter LOVED the water as you can see from these pics.
This motel is family owned, friendly and clean but it is very old school! From the wood grain walls to the paper bath mat, so much of it is still just as it was in the 60′s but we love it. (Yes I said “paper” bath mat with a map pf NC places to see on it. I have not seen those since I was little! We now take our own bath mat just to make it feel a little more like home.)
Check it out if you are planning a trip to the Outer Banks. Make sure you look at the tour/history section of the website. The last and only color picture is from the 60′s and it looks like what you will see today.

I love going to the Farmer’s Market and I proud that I have passed that onto my daughter. She loves walking around, looking and tasting…..well she really only will eat the cantaloupe and watermelon. But she does enjoy looking, touching and asking what things are.
Go out and support your local farmers!!!
