Searching for Roy G Biv 3 - Pink, Update 2

Welcome to the August installment of the search for Roy G Biv. Julie and I are venturing outside the Roy G Biv alphabet for the remainder of 2014. We're celebrating pink this month.


With 2 little girls in the house, it seems we've had numerous infestations of the color - from little girl pastel pink to my favorites, magenta and fuschia.


It came as a bit of a surprise last week to find it at the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in Duck and Corolla.

 My brother in the lead.
 
 Grace left. Ellie right.


 Seems even pirates can get their pink on.

The shark at the bait and tackle store in Duck was a favorite as was the winged pink pig mailbox at one beach house, the kids' pink with white trim Victorian playhouse for sale and the little girl pastel pink pick-up truck we passed on the way home. Sadly, there are no photos of those 3. I wasn't driving and, well, my skills of persuasion need honing it seems.



At the company picnic Monday, I managed to find a few more goodies to share. My favorite is definitely Ellie's face paint and crooked smile.

If you want to join in the fun and share, just leave a comment with Julie or me and we'll be tickled pink (sorry...couldn't resist) to link to your post. Stay tuned for updates. Enjoy!

    1. Love those pink shoelaces! And yes, in a house filled with girls, pink is definitely the new black.

  2. A great selection. I find that when one is away from home it's easier to hone in on a color. Love the flag, that your brother is in the pink car and Ellie's smile (Boy oh boy (or Girl oh girl?), those girls are growing!!)

    1. The flag was fun to watch and photograph outside a toy store on the bay in Duck. Ellie's decorations were great...and gone by bedtime save for the pink eye shadow. Let her keep that on til the morning.

  5. Pink seems like such a fun summer colour - the photo of Grace and Ellie on the dodgem cars with their hair in flight is my favourite!
