9.25- Why don't you kids go play out in the street?

Kids playing on "boogie boards" in the wind-tide-inundated portion of Hodges Street.

The water is going down today as 94L approaches the South Carolina-North Carolina border and winds down a bit after a night of gusty winds in the 20-40 mph range.

These three kids were enjoying the "Hodges St. Beach"... a foot or more of water has covered the street since yesterday (see yesterday's post, below... even more pictures of the high waters on "The Dinghy Dock" posts for today and yesterday.)

Leave it to children to find something fun in disasters big and small. ;)

Cool photo! Those kids look like they're having a blast. Sometimes, I miss being a kid...

Hey, could you email me (jmkincaidATaoldotcom), please? I have a question about the comment you left on my blog yesterday vis-a-vis the Bethune statue. Thanks!

No cares in the world, just having fun. Very different from their parents I expect.

These kids are having so much fun! The joys of carefree childhood!
