Pink Saturday, 9/11 & More Greetings From The Outer Banks

I thought this flag at half mast was a touching tribute to the loss of loved ones on 9/11
Prayers to all the families. Also thank you and prayers to our men and women that are serving our country.
Welcome to my Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound.
I'm still at the beach but packed up and ready to head home tomorrow. We had such a wonderful time! I hate to see our time at the beach end but I'm excited to get home to my pets and see my grandson's and daughter!
Not to much pink this week, I found this pretty little cup and saucer at an antique store.

A close up.

These are really stretching the pink, maybe peachy, but they are my favorite seafood in the whole world. King Crab Legs, yummy!!!!!!! Sorry the pic is blurry!

Some pretty pink shells.

That's it for pink this week. Here are a few pics of Hannah passing through.
The bay went empty as she was passing through. We were told by the locals that this happened, still surprised me. Totally empty. The high spots were sand dunes.

In this pic you can see a man had walked out the check his crab traps.
A little closer, those sticks in the background are marking clam beds.
It filled back up several hours later and did not flood, we were lucky. If the water rushs back in fast we were told the area would have flooded for a few days.

The ocean was really rough, these were taken just after Hannah passed through.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll be posting more pics from my vacation in the next few weeks.
Blessings, Shirl

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Shirl.

Great pictures. I had no idea the bay would empty. How interesting!

I think crab legs qualify as a form of pink, and they definitely qualify as delicious.
