Christmas Lights in North Carolina

Another nice thing about going to the  beach in December (when compared to our usual trip in May) ---besides seeing gorgeous sunrises and sunsets,   was getting to drive around the area to see their Christmas lights and decorations...  OBVIOUSLY,  we don't see that in May.  I have two posts remaining from our December trip to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

Today and tomorrow,  I will share some of the pretty Christmas lights for you.  Above is a picture of one of our favorite restaurants in the area.  This is the Boundary House in Calabash, NC.  It is called that since it is near the boundary between North and South Carolina.

This is a picture of another of our favorite shopping places in Calabash, NC.  The name is Callahan's --and they have tons and tons of Christmas decorations and ornaments in addition to many other things, as you can see listed in the picture...

This beautiful Christmas tree was outside near Callahan's in Calabash, NC.

Here's another picture of Callahan's...  It was a little too cold to sit on the long porch!!!! ha

I love this picture of the side of Callahan's --with the full moon above!!!!

These last two pictures were taken at Islander Inn,  where we stayed on the beach in Ocean Isle, NC.  There weren't many decorations along the beach--but they did decorate the Palm trees at Islander Inn.  AND--you can see that the moon was still with us!!!!

Here is a close-up of one of the Palm trees at Islander Inn--all decorated for Christmas.

Tomorrow,  I will show you some pictures of the lights at Barefoot Landing at Myrtle Beach,  so stay tuned!!!!

Still snowing in our area!!!  We can't get out since the roads are a MESS...  I love snow--but enough is enough!!!!! ha ha
