Wilmington, NC - Oct 4th-6th
Ash, Brooke, and I got back from Wilmington last night and it was, to say the least, an incredible time. Matt lives a few houses from the ocean on Wrightsville Beach. We cruised into town on Saturday afternoon around 4 and kicked around the area for a couple of days, the weather was absolutely flawless. I fear this could be the last of the beach weather for the year, nonetheless, lucky for us we were able to experience it.
In fact, it was so great that the local gang of ducks was out on our walk to the bar prior to the Skins triumphant victory on Sunday. They weren't too friendly, and if you look close enough you'll see one of them has a red bandanna on. He was the pack leader. Apparently he takes them all through town, creating issues with the locals, stealing bread from the bakery, and crossing the roads at will.
So, after yelling at the top of our lungs and drinking 7 pitchers of beer during the Skins game, we left "Jerry Allens" for "Buddy's," an intimate little bar a few paces from the beach. After that, we headed to downtown Wilmington to the Brewing Station, which I really don't remember. I wish I could tell you more ;)
