landlocked! those of you in watery places like new york city, LA, norfolk, i envy you right now! wait that's everyone. truly i'm loving ohio, with its cornfields, deep woods and hills, but i definitely miss the water already, the beach, all that. being an emergency medcine intern has actually been really cool. of course the nurses like to give us a hard time for being rookies and we all feel like we're just playing doctors on tv, but slowly and surely i'm getting in the groove and its awesome. i had my 3rd shift at columbus childrens ED today, it was exciting, with lots of injuries, broken bones, etc. i like injuries because "we can fix that" as dr. goode used to say.
yes randall, i too have photo droughts, like right now. my computer is dying a slow death so that's my current excuse. but this photo is from before leaving VA. its up in hampton at the marina where one of my kids works, i think he actually took this photo (credits to tyler v) with a 30 second exposure, camera propped on a piling with a tshirt... there's no predicting lightning of course but it worked out.
here are some photos from after my EM month, went down to hatteras with friends. this is pretty much me at my happiest, just out of the water after getting pummelled by 10 foot waves!
we stayed at a beautiful campsite called frisco woods (for randall's sake i should clarify that its the east coast frisco) which actually is on the west coast of hatteras island, on pamilco sound. my bro tommy was juggling fire sticks, which i found immensely entertaining.
here are four of us heading out at about 645 for "dawn patrol" at a beach south of the lighthouse. from left in this loch-ness-monster-style photo are jon, adam, myself, and tommy. by the ways i must give credit to kendra for this photo, and jon for the top photo. as you guys can probably see from my entry, I LOVE FOURTH YEAR! i know next year as an intern my life will just be one butt-kicking after another, but i might as well enjoy this one while it lasts...true, kevin?
