We went to the annual Arts by the Sea Festival in Swansboro today. We decided at the last minute to go and I am so glad that we did. It was so nice to just walk around and enjoy the beautiful weather and look at all the interesting art booths. We also had lunch at the Gourmet Cafe, which was one of our favorite restaurants when we lived here before. The picture of the kids and me with Elvis was taken outside a restaurant called Yana's Restaurant which is right next to a neat little shop called Yanamama's 50's Memorabilia Shoppe which has a whole section of Elvis goodies. I told the owner that I had to come back sometime without Dave and the kids so I could take my time and shop!
