Wrightsville Beach--two days after TS Hanna

Tropical Storm Hanna hit Wilmington last week (late Friday, early A.M. Saturday), and we had some really strong winds, but nothing too crazy. Being from Florida, we are pretty used to these storms. Larry of course hit the beach Saturday to surf what he said were "some of the best waves he's ever surfed." The boys and I stayed home Saturday, but Sunday we all went out to Wrightsville Beach to see how it weathered Hanna. There were lots of shells washed up, and a drop off in the sand just where the shore break is. The water was too rough for swimming, but Aidan and Connor had a blast splashing around in the tide. Larry went back out again that evening for another surf session with our neighbor, who happens to surf too.
