(continued from part one)…So we got to the park at the Battleship North Carolina, and I was instantly reminded of all the reasons I love living in this town. Looking across the river at downtown Wilmington… thinking about all the memories I’ve made, all the photographs I’ve taken, all the couples I’ve watched start the next step of their journeys together, all the romantic dinners with Mike… all those memories, all those years, all contained in those few square blocks, between buildings, in alleyways and churches and restaurants. I’m not big on nostalgia, but sometimes it smacks me in the face and I just have to accept that I’m a softy after all.
So, we spent a little while in the grassy part of the park, but I’d had my eye on the creepy old housey looking thing off to the other side of the entry road… and the marshy tall grasses the creepy housey thing fronted. Marshy tall grass! Creepy housey thing! It’s like Modern Engagement Session 101, right there in front of us! Could I resist?
…No. I could not resist:
The whole “nature” thing got me all inspired, so I suggested that we run over to Greenfield Lake to see what we could find. Note: every single image taken at Greenfield Lake below? I was either standing or kneeling in goose poop. Every. Single. One. I am starting to think there’s no *ground* at Greenfield. It’s just goose poop.
Come on. It’s almost too warm and fuzzy, right?
