On Sunday, when we pulled into the marina in Manteo North Carolina. I saw kids playing at a playground. Once we were tied in our slip, Mom went to pay, Dad cleaned the boat and I went to play at the park. I met new friends. Their names were Ainsley and Hadley. Ainsley is 9 years old in grade three and Hadley is 6 years old and she is in grade one. We played together all afternoon on Sunday. I invited the girls to see my boat. Their Dad Matt and Uncle Jimmy came over and had a beer with Mom and Dad, while we played on board. When they left we made plans to meet again tomorrow. The next day, the girls and their Dad came to the boat and asked if we wanted to go out for the day. Mom and Dad were still cleaning the boat but I was allowed to go. We went to their Uncle Jimmy’s store. We got to pick out a sand bucket that had a shell, a turtle, suckers, and a sticker. I put the sticker on the front of my bucket. I also got a mood ring. Thank you to the girl’s Dad and their Uncle Jimmy! We went to the beach for a few hours. We made sand castles and played. We had lots of fun. We came back to the boat. Mom and Dad were finished cleaning. Ainsley and Hadley asked us to go with them for dinner. Mom and Dad said that sounds great. We would meet after we got cleaned up. Mom, Dad and I were picked up and driven to the restaurant. Mom and Dad got to meet the girl’s Mom. Her name is Blake. When we got to the restaurant, their Uncle Jimmy, Aunt Parker and their grandparents were already there. Everyone chatted and it was a good dinner. When we were done eating we were driven back to the marina. I was sad that we were leaving. They have our boating card that has our blog and email address. I hope they write to me.
