The trip: My parents have a time-share package that they subscribe to. This year they wanted to go to North Carolina. We went to Manteo for a week. We saw some museums, sites, and spent some evening time at the beach. It was so hot we didn't want to expose our son to the blistering heat (especially after he had an allergic reaction to the sun block)
Evenings were a good time for him to play in the sand. He got a couple feet in the ocean and got knocked down by a wave.
