N.C. January 2017-- Part 14: We Finish the Condo and Missile Launch Pad

JANUARY 15, SUNDAY

Another colorful sunrise.  I even watched David Jeremiah on TV delivering his sermon, something that Mom watched religiously every Sunday morning before she went to Sunday School and church.

Drove over to the condo, but they were still asleep.  Bought a copy of one of my favorite newspapers, the Wilmington Star-News at the post office, the only place at Topsail beach you can buy it during the winter months.  Like I said, Topsail Beach is ultra dead during the winter.  (Almost like the time we spent an extra three days out on Put-In-Bay on South Bass Island in Lake Erie, you could go batty here in the winter.)

We went to the condo and finished clearing out everything and loaded the trailer which Julie and Ed were going to take stuff back to Savannah and they left.  We had quite a pile of junk sitting out by the road as well.

I went back to the motel and sat out on the patio which was the launching pad for the U.S. missile program which took place on Topsail Island after World War II.  Enjoyed the view  on a very pleasant day in January and read the paper which had quite a few pictures of the events out at Fort Fisher yesterday.  Boy, I sure wish I had been able to go.
