Mike and I stopped by the

mill in the hinterland of NorthCarolina for a tour of the facility. Lake Phelps Grain Co. moves some serious quantities of staple crop everyday. Heres a semi unloading corn into the hopper which will then be stored in a massive silo. Next stop: Outer Banks.

Its always nice being back in the same general area with the whole family. Michael and I have spent the last few nights down in Ocean Isle whilst at the bosom of the family. We have been preparing and consuming many healthy, whole-foods meals.  This wholesome diet has established itself as a canon of the Powell household.  This was ultimately inspired from watching a documentary called  “Forks Over Knives” which is very convincing and recommended.

This morning we took the jet ski out and had a couple rounds of tow-ats in the inlet.  The waves where fun, which was unforeseen, and a handful of full-rotation airs where done, leading into a not-quite-riding-out completion due to the marginality of the waves.
