This past weekend at Oak Island, NC was extremely fun. My sister got married, I got to catch up with family and friends, and I got to bask in the beauty of the ocean and great weather. It was very depressing to leave. The beach house we stayed in was surprisingly nice. The game room had a large poker table and there was an enormous hot tub. If you think sitting in a hot tub looking out on the ocean is cool, you’d be right. The wedding itself took place right on the beach. The background was punctuated by the odd pelican plunging into the surf, shooting up large sprays of water.

I think that Memories of the Sun would be a fitting name for a Pittsburgh blog. When I was younger, I loved dark, cloudy weather. I’ve never been a fan of the steel gray overcast that doesn’t change, but it didn’t bother me much. After experiencing it nearly nonstop for the past few months, it gets to you a bit. I didn’t fully realize that until I was standing outside today, in the park, with the sun out, and the sky deep blue beside swiftly moving cumulus clouds. I missed the sun.
My favorite Pittsburgh weather comes at the beginning of autumn, when the temperature begins to drop and the leaves are changing. It doesn’t seem to rain quite as much then and it can be quite beautiful.
I’ll be travelling south this week, to Oak Island, NC for my sister’s wedding. The North Kakalakee beach in early summer (which begins in April in the South) should be nice and refreshing. And just as summer begins there early, spring gets started late here. It has been less than 60 degrees out for most of the past week.
Suffice it to say, probably no blogging for the next week.
