This past week, we have been at Topsail Beach with my moms’ side of the family. We have many traditions when we go to Topsail, such as Putt Putt, Dairy Queen, crabbing, and burying each other in the sand. This year I may have established a new tradition!
The Jolly Roger Pier is about a 10 minute walk on the beach from our rental beach house. Generally, we chose a night to take the entire family for a walk on the pier, which we did as planned. I curiously asked my dad what time the pier closed. He said he didn’t think it ever closed – crazy people fished all night long. “In that case,” I said, “let’s go at midnight!”
“Why would I do that?”
“Everything is more fun at 12:00 a.m.” He’s getting really old.
So after everyone was asleep, except for my dad and me, we sneaked out of the house, and walked down the dark beach to the pier. He was right, there were a few folks there fishing.
We didn’t stay long, but we had fun hanging out.
I will definitely try to continue this tradition. (Whether I will be successful is debatable.)
