Our World Tuesday: Swansboro

Last weekend, I visited Swansboro, North Carolina, just to see what was in this little village at the mouth of the White Oak River. I came across this siren wearing a lei of Christmas lights and a memento of a shipwreck, perhaps.

I had a seat at a park near this neat-as-a-pin pier.

I stepped aside to let this pedestrian make his way down the sidewalk.

From a distance, I admired the clothing on display in the windows of this historic building, once a warehouse for naval stores.

where Elvis was waiting for me in the ladies' room as well as at the door. Life is full of surprises.

Wonderful photos, Sandy. I love the perspective of the siren. That's a whimsical collection that she's wearing.

I'm wondering if you heard anything on your way out of the ladies' room.. like "Thank you. Thank you very much"
